When the display is not working, perhaps it is switched of, but more likely there is a defect in the phone, like a bad connection, loose or oxidised, a broken cable lots of other components can be defect, of the back lit screen is not powered.
I don't think you can solve this yourself, perhaps you should visit a phone repair shop, or start saving for a new phone?

SOURCE: my phone is locked i don,t know the pin sonnyericson w705

Hi,

PIN CODE is SIM dependenet and not phone dependent

PUK code in PIN UNLOCKING CODE, which is required when you give PIN number wrongly for 3 times,
This code is OPERATOR specific and not phone specific and you have to call you operator and get PUK if PIN is blocked...

if you provide PUK code wrongly for 7 time, you sim may become useless, then you have to buy new SIM

NOTE: You should ask your service provider,get the PUK, give the PIN 3 times wrongly and it asks for PUk,provide the PUK and set the new PIN..

SOURCE: My Boost Mobile phone is Pin Blocked& I

Hi,
Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This generic because I don't know your carrier. I've used ATT as an example.
Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them
When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.
Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.
Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.
Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.
A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

  • logging in to your myWireless Account online
  • using their Technical Support Chat
  • calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500
To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:
  • Log in to your myWireless Account.
  • Select My Services under My Account.
  • From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
  • Select Unblock SIM Card.
  • The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.


Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code. Note: If you enter the wrong ATT PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator." There are three other ways to unlock a phone:
  • The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
  • You can do it yourself by clicking on this link Free Unlock Codes ,
  • Pay $3.89 at the following website: www.theunlockshack.com/.

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

My lg k10 phone is stuck on a black screen I can feel it vibrate when I turn it on


Plug it to the wall charger and see if there are any signs in the display..If the battery has heavily drained out, this will take from 10 mins to 1 hour. If there is no signs on the display except the vibration on pressing the power button, your display has gone. Get it to a repair shop

Tip

7 ways to extend the life of cell phone battery


Batteries don’t last longer than a few days. But to be fair to the battery designers we have to admit that nowadays’ smartphones require much more energy than phones 10 years ago. We can’t really compare them but what we can do is use them with more care. Here are a few good tips how to go about it:

1. Turn off your Bluetooth – I find Bluetooth to be the most power hungry application; turn it off when you don’t use it

2. Disable sounds and vibrating alert – you don’t really need keypad tones to be on, do you? What about vibrating? It is surely useful on the meetings or in a cinema but most of time you’ll do just fine without it; I usually set up a vibrating profile to be used in places like cinema or theatre and in all other profiles I have vibrating turned off

3. Brightness – lower the brightness of your screen; not too low, otherwise you’ll destroy your vision

4. Setting the Power saver time-out and the Light time-out to the low values will help too (you’ll find them in the display settings)

5. If you are not using an application switch it off – you’ll get a list of all active applications by long pressing the menu button; this is a general rule that can be applied to any device

6. Games – it’s fun to play games on your way to school but they are power-hungry beasts; I can’t tell you not to play games but think about your battery when you are playing

7. Turn off your phone when you don’t use it – I know that for many of you this is not an option and I’m not sure if turning it off and on is even good for your battery but I heard this tip from so many people that I just had to mention it

I don't want my phone to be in silent mode!!! Help!


To turn off the ringtone:

Press and hold the Power key on the top of the phone, then tap Silent mode.
Press and hold the down the Volume key until the volume bar is empty and the Ringer volume icon has a x next to it.
To set the vibrating alert:

1.From the Home screen, find and tap Settings.
2.Tap Sound & display.
3.Mark the Phone vibrate checkbox.
Tip: When in silent mode, press the Volume key up once to activate the phone vibrate mode.

Do the opposite to turn it back on.

Samsung epic galaxy S running Android 2.2. Phone stopped vibrating. Why? Purchased on 4-1-2011.


Hello,
problem is either with your ringer settings or from the ********.
Check your ring tone settings, see if vibration is enable/active.
If vibration is enabled and you still don't feel any vibration from the phone, then it means your phone's ******** has become defective. Below is an image of what the ******** looks like:

Also, factory reset the phone and see if that would solve the problem. If resetting doesn't solve the problem, then know for sure that the problem is with the ********. It might have loosed contact and shifted from it's normal position or it maybe defective.
Let me know if you would like to replace the ******** yourself or not.
Take care.

CAN THE SAMSUNG C3050 VIBRATE WHEN THERE IS AN INCOMIMG CALL


Welcome to Fixya.


How to know if your Samsung Phone has a vibration feature.

Press and hold the # key. Phone will enter to silent mode. You will feel it vibrate. Select a phone profile and edit it. You will be able to find the vibration option in the "call type".

If the phone does not vibrate while entering the silent mode, it means it does not have the vibration feature.

Thank you for using FixYa!
