Outside display screen will not show anything but the motorolla logo

Up until two days ago this was working fine, now the only thing that shows on the display on the outside of the phone is the M logo.  Previously time, date, and callers name showed up.  Now nothing.  Help.

Does anything show on the external display if you go to take a picture, but before you acually take it, close the phone and look on the external display as if you were taking a self-portrait?
To make fully sure, while the phone is closed, press a volume button - does anything show on the display? If so, the external display functions and it would be a setting that may have been overlooked.
Go to Menu > Settings > Initial Setup > Display Timeout
Menu > Settings > Personalise > Home Screen

What does it mean when your iphone 4 wont turn on but the LCD is fine?Just look at the details below

Hi there,
where did the phone land - (eg top left corner - front)?
Is there damage to the chassis of the phone?
If there's a crack in the screen and a little moisture got in there would be problems, also if the contacts to the display are damaged this could do something similar to what you are describing.
I have seen iPhones and iPads still working with very broken screens, but I guess the damage was to the outer screen cover only.

Jumbled screen on LG CU515

Your phone has a LCD (liquid crystal display) and if it is dropped or gets a chemical or even water on it it can damage the fragile insides of your phone. Is there a gas at the shelter that could be affecting it? Barring that, take it to your provider and have them analyze the problem. That is a free service. Good luck.

I had the same problem. I sent it back to Motorola for warranty. They fixed it and said it was a connection issue.The connection between the screen and the keys came unplugged. This is a regular problem they have with this phone. The phone is poor quality!!!!

No display but it works

I have taken the Motorola L6 apart bit by bit and reconnected it. If you open the back you will find 4 screws to undo on a silver casing. Once inside the phone you will look at the very top left where you will find a gold coloured connector with pins on the underside. This bit controls the display. If it has come off you can push it back into position with your finger. If it hasn't come off it may just be loose. Press until you feel it click into place and voila! Picture is back.

Logo stays on outside display window of cell phone

I'm having the same trouble, and I've found it's because the v3 no longer recognizes the opening and closing of the phone itself. You see, when you close it, something is triggered that tells the phone to shut off the main screen and change the outer screen to the usual mode where it shows the time. You can also test this by trying to take a picture and closing the phone - the external lcd no longer doubles as a second camera display to easily take pictures of yourself. I dropped mine into the toilet, and I'm not sure if there's anything to do but take it to a tech. Sounds and looks like a hardware problem to me.
