My 5300 lcd screen cracked

I quarrelled with my gf, and I was mad. I was planning to throw my phone onto the bed but my hand slipped and the whole thing went towards the wall. The cover is so nice, but with a little scratch after hitting the wall, but sadly, the lcd screen cracked. A huge crack line crossing over the screen, and a black patch on the right upper corner of the screen. No text can be displayed but the phone is still functioning well.

What shall i do? And can it be claimed if I tried to bluff the Nokia distributer? O.o

Re: My 5300 lcd screen cracked

If they see that the case has got a mark on ot they wont replace it the only thing you can do is take it in to have a new screen fitted the cheapest place to go to is a small phone shop not a big name one you can replace them yourself but you will need to buy tools and can cost more than the repair and you can also damage the phone more if you undo in the wrong order sorry couldnt be anymore help you use to be able to buy a new phone and change the cases and then put the old one in the box and say it was like that when you brought it that way you get a new phone but alot of shops have got wise to this so you will have to check their policy alot of them now wont let you return it if the box has been opened or if the serial numbers dont match the ones on the box i no you could get away doing this but have not done it for a while so you could end up buying new phone and been stuck with them both i would get the screen replaced unless you are sure off a shops return policy hope this is some help

Re: My 5300 lcd screen cracked

Look on ebay, there are tons of adds for new screens that come with tools. Then go to Youtube and there are a few videos about how to change the screen (helps if you know spanish). There is one that tells you how to disassemble the whole thing. My LCD popped and I got a black dot and no function, tmobile tells me it is a physical thing and not warranty. Funny that it was fine when I put it in my pocket and ten minutes later it comes out broke?!! If you are not so hot on taking your phone apart then go the route of a small shop or look on craigslist for someone.

How durable is sonyerrison k850i mobile phone

Not very mate, we repair a lot of these every week... Touchscreen portion of the display goes as well as the whole screen. The lens is glued onto the LCD because of that if you crack the lens you usually also end up having to replace the screen too... Has a few software bugs too, other than that its very fat and ugly, lol

Screen has an "LCD" leak apparently.

The LCD is not cracked, however either the ribbon cable attaching it to the mainboard or the mainboard itself is cracked or the phone has a bad processor.
If the phone is under warranty, get it replaced.
If it is not, you may be able to open it (depending on what kind of tools you have).
Check all cables and boards for damage, seat all connectors firmly, and re-assemble.  
If it is a smart phone, you can get replacement parts if needed.  If it is not, your parts options are limited.

Not recommended for the average person to tackle.
You need the tools to take the phone apart, buy a new LCD and have a lot of patience and a steady hand to do the job.
