My LG phone screen will not react to touch


Hello,


When a phone screen is blank or has a white screen, etc, there are three things that could be the cause;


1. Bad/defective screen and the solution is screen replacement. (In your case, your screen might be failing).
2. Software/Virus problem and solution is to flash the phone
3. Flex problem and solution is to change the flex. In some cases the flex might have shifted or not in it's right position, in this case, just fix the flex back properly and all will be well.


Bad/defective screen:


If your phone is having a white screen, first thing to do is dismantle the phone carefully, check if the screen is properly fixed to the phone board, also check if screen flex is intact. Once you've confirmed that all these are okay and screen is not still coming up, then it means your screen is bad. You can go ahead and replace the screen.


Make sure you confirm the screen is bad before you do any replacement.


Software/Virus:


Sometimes software/virus problem on phones are mistaken to screen problem. When a screen is white or blank, sometimes it's a virus problem. To further confirm, turn on the phone, wait for about 2 minutes when you know the phone must have booted fully, then use another phone to call the phone with white or blank screen. If the phone rings, it means it's not a virus problem, but if it doesn't ring, it means it's a software/virus problem.


If you discover your phone has a virus problem, you will have to flash the phone for it to display again,


Flex problem


When your phone screen is blank, white, has horizontal/vertical lines, turn images up-side-down, etc, be calm, there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out, that's why your screen is acting like any of the mentioned problem.


This is usually common with flip and slide phones. The flex worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone. Samsung and Motorola phones mostly have this kind of problems.


Replacing the flex is the only solution to this problem. If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be replaced.

Conclusion

Disassemble your phone and check the screen part in order to verify from the above which is actually the cause of the problem.

Please let me know if you need anymore assistance.

Good luck.

My screen went blank what can ido


Hi, my name is jeff and I work for a used cell phone and repair store in Sioux Falls South Dakota called THE CELL PHONE GUY. what the cause probably is, is that you either have a bad connection on a male female part of your flex, or a tear in your flex. if everything else is lighting up except for your screen, thats a sign that your flex might be torn or just dissconected. if you would want it fixed you can always call us at 605 335 0411

Hello

I suspect a flex problem

The flex is what connects the screen of the phone to the board of the phone.

what you are experiencing is common with all flip phones and slide phones, the more you flip and slide these type of phones,the flex gets weaker and that may be the cause of the blank screen

What you should do is;

Open your phone,you will see a plasticlike cable connecting your phone screen to the board of your phone(that is the flex)

Remove the flex and fix it back carefully, you should hear a click sound.

Close your phone and switch it on you wont have a blank screen anymore.

if you cant do this yourself,get a person with experience to do it for you

Thank you for visiting fixya

The screen is blank. The keys light up but I cannot see anything on the screen. I have tried to turn it off then back on but it doesn't work. What can I do to fix it?


Sounds like the flex cable is went bad. You can get them for around 6.00 on ebay with a tool kit to open the phone. Really simple to change them.

Screen went blank


Hi,

The part that is bad is the Ribbon flex cable that geos from the main board to the LCD board. Over time the cable becomes chaffed and will lose continuity between the traces. It can be fixed with

Tessco Part #: GH97-07715A

It does need to be soldered on the LCD side.
Or it is liquid damage

Helio Ocean..blank screen


I managed to fix mine! It takes some doing and is probably not for the faint hearted. You have to disassemble the Ocean from the battery side, removing the qwerty keyboard, to gain access to the slider assembly.

Disassemble the slider (pay attention to the spring!) and clean all contacts and make sure all of the flex cables are seated completely. Mine was working OK the qwerty way, but was blank and/or garbled the long way. Now it works great!
