The phone uses two magnets which are located behind the lcd screen to sense when the screen has been swiveled away. There are two sensors which are built into the keyboard which senses the change in magnetic flux. I guess that there are two so that one can determine to which direction the screen was swiveled. So what could happen, is that the keyboard does not make proper contact with the main board within the phone and this can be the cause to the problem. It seems like when too much pressure is applied to the keyboard over time, that the contact pads on the keyboard wears out. So by replacing the keyboard pcb, the problem would likely be solved. One could of course try to fix these pads. One other possibility is that there is something wrong with the magnets behind the lcd. Either missing or misplaced or they are so old that they do not have a sufficient magnetic flux any longer, but I guess that is less likely.

Based on someone981 comments. I open up the phone and changing the keypad was not my option. Then i check the magnet. One of the magnet was going to peel off. So I peel off and reverse the suspected problem magnet by applying double side tape to stick on the metal plate. And it works beautifully. Have to clean the old sticky material that applied on the magnet before applying new double sided tape to avoid too much gap between magnet and the sensors under the keypad.

My LG Chocolate VX8550's LCD screen decided it would like to turn upside down permanently, and I don't know how to right it. It's rather hard reading or typing upside down, so does anyone know how to...


Well.. Umm.. Do you know how it could of been turned upside down?
Well you could try going to SETTINGS and then to SECURTIY and from there you could try RESTORING IT. Now, i don't know if this will fix your problem... But it MIGHT work.


PLEASE NOTE: When restoring your phone, you put it back to the factory settings

Display is sometimes upside down when open


LCD change on 7373. This will take you to the connector.
  1. Switch off the phone.
  2. Take SIM card out.
  3. Take front faceplate off by inserting Credit card/Tweezers between housing and silver key. As you pull up, take credit card and slide it on the side of the phone prying the clips off. (Gently tease it out working around the phone)
  4. Unscrew these 6 screws at the edges with the T6 screwdriver and release the 4 clips surrounding the LCD screen. Slip the little black frame off of the LCD screen, and lift the screen. (Prize it up gently from the swivel end of the mob.) There’s a printed circuit board underneath it is attached to the LCD by a hook type catch. Don’t damage it (the board). You should now see a screw. Removing this screw removes the back cover.
  5. That’s it! Put your new faceplate or housing in and figure out how to put things back by following the directions here in reverse order.

  6. You should use anti static gloves for this job, avoid touching the connections and the LCD face.

Front screen only displays upside down Verizon logo....


Sounds like you should take it to have it looked at. Theres something up. The verizon thing only appears when the phone is opened so there must be something out of place in it so your phone can't read when it's closed. So I really can't help you there. To set the phone calls to answer automatically go to "menu" then "call settings" under "settings & tools". Now go to "in-call setup", then "answer options" and under there you'll find the choice to change it to open to answer. Hope this helped!
