Your battery may have died. Go to a phone repair shop, they can test the battery and confirm if that is the problem.

LG VX5300 Flip Phone broke in half.


Your phone can work again, all you need to do is to get the flexi cable and fix it back in place.

It is not expensive.

It is about $15.

To fix this, these are the processes to follow;
  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. Turn your phone over so the battery cover is facing you. Remove the battery cover and battery.
  3. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers and unscrew the aerial.
  4. Remove the 6 screws,
  5. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers & screws above the main screen,
  6. Prise the back part away from the rest of the phone by running your fingernail between where the two parts meet,
  7. Unclip the ribbon,
  8. After removing the ribbon cable, carefully lift the metal part that is beneath the phone. Another ribbon will be attached which should be carefully removed.
  9. Take the circuit board & keypad out and you'll be left with what's below it.
  10. Next remove the top part of the phone by pushing the housing in whilst pulling the hinge, which the top part is attached via, away from the phone. This is the hardest part and you'll need to bend and manipulate the housing the get the hinge out. Be firm but be careful so you don't snap the housing.
  11. To open the top half of the phone and get to the screen, run your fingernail between where the two parts of the housing meets,
  12. Try to open up the top part by splitting it open with a credit card,
  13. replace the ribbon and,
  14. Reverse the procedure for reassembly and it's finished.

Use the pry tool to remove the back case. 4. remove the motherboard, three connectors, one on bottom left, antenna and top right below the board. board comes off. You also have to remove the power connector (transparent plastic) to what appears to be some hf component (cylinder). there are two wires (red, black), red goes to side marked +. remove with pry tool. 5. Remove all small screws you can see. 6. Remove the shiny plate, keyboard button layer. 6a. Remove the lcd connector screw and the connector. 7.

Screen does not show picture.

You have a bad LCD Screen! Your touch screen is good. I have found a good tutorial to walk you through changing out the screen. You can find a replacement LCD screen on eBay. I will copy and paste the tutorial here for you and also include the link for future reference. These are not hard to replace, just exercise patience. You do not feel comfortable doing it yourself, you can email us and we'll quote you a price for the screen plus labor to do it for you.

The copy and pasted version of the tutorial:
I recently cracked the LCD on my new Xenon. I found a replacement LCD on ebay, but I was unable to find any information on how to take the phone apart. I figured my way through it and thought I should post something someplace so others can find it.

This probably voids your warranty... You need good eye sight and be prepared to drop microscopic screws that you need to chase after. Pretty much the only tool you need is a small philips eye glass screw driver and a small flat screw driver or pry device. I noticed some kits on ebay that include a pry tool and a t6 torx driver, but my xenon is all philips not torx screws...

- First remove the battery
and sim.
- Remove the 6 screws around the outside of the back of the phone and a seventh screw behind where the battery rests.
- The plastic colored part of the phone can now be removed from the phone body. There are some plastic clips that snap it in, so it will take some prying to get it free. But don't break it.
- You can unplug the flat cable that runs from the screen half of the phone to the phone motherboard. Simply pry it up with your finger nail away from the circuit board.
- There are three buttons on the side of the phone, the volume rocker, camera
, and lock button that you should take not of, mine fell our and I had to put them back in. Also, there is a rubber knob on the end of the SD slot and USB port covers that snap into the housing that might come dislodged and need to be reset.
- There are two sets of four screws that attach the screen half of the phone to the rails it slides on.
- After these screws are removed you can seperate the two halves, notice the spring that locks in place in two oblong holes (one on each half of the phone, screen and keyboard.)
- There are six screws on the back of the screen, three are covered by plastic circles that need to be pried free. They are just glued in place.
- Now you can remove the back, which again requires some prying to snap it free.
- The screen has two pieces of black tape holding it into the phone body and it also has the cable going to the ear piece taped to the back of the screen in two places.
- Once all the tape is free you can unplug where the earpiece cable connects to the circuit board by the mouth piece.
- The connector for the LCD screen is different then the others so far. This on is not a snap down plug, it is more like a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) connector. However, when I tried to hinge open the white part that clamps the ribbon down I broke mine. So perhaps this is not a ZIF. Maybe a Some Insertion Force connector? I just unplugged the old cable by pulling it out and pushed the new cable in. My screen still works with the partially broken clamp. Hopefully someone else figures this part out better then I did.
- The ear piece contains a magnet that likes to attach to the back of the LCD. Make sure you get everything seated before you try and snap it back together.

Please leave positive feedback for us :)

Motorola pebl

I had the exact same problem. Take the phone apart and wipe down he keypad with an alcohol soaked (very mild) q-tip. Let it dry and re-assemble the phone. It all works now!

There are 4 tiny screws under the back cover, unscrew all 4 (home depot carries the little star attachment in most tool sets). Then lift the blue cover off the keypad, the board in the middle stays attached to the headset. There is a little black rubber piece by the USB port keep an eye on it. Also do not pull the board away from the headset, you'll break a tiny silver ribbon.

To re-assemble just tuck the board back in the blue case, tighten the top screws half way. Flip over and tuck the side button connections in, then slip the face plate in top first and press down. Tighten remaining screws and you're done.

Cracked outside LCD Screen on my PEBL

This is a big take-appart for someone who is not used to this.

I have not worked on your particular model. With many of these phones, it is a combination of snap-fit and small screws.

The work is delecate. It is possible to break or disturb something along the way. At home you will not have the means to do any of the SMD type soldering, or to troubleshoot the phone if something goes wrong.

My preference for someone who is not experienced, trained, and equiped, would be to take the phone to the service center for it, and have them change the piece. At least you know that you will have a working phone when they finish.

No screen to my U6 cell phone

Either the flex ribbon got dislodged when you dropped it, or you broke the actual lcd. I think its probably the first instance, i think the little latch on the flex ribbon popped off. Happens often. Go to your local moto service center or your service provider and im sure they will either fix it or replace it. If you have no service center near by, or its not under warranty, check my profile and im sure we can help you out!!
