Question about Audiovox Cell Phones
Hello, I need to buy the flex cable for an Audiovox CDM-8910VM. It broke and the display does not turn on. Can anyone tell me where I can purchase this cable?
SOURCE: flex cable
It's fairly simple to replace a flex cable if that's the culprit. This is a flex cable: http://cnn.cn/shop/motorola-razr-keyboard-flex-cable-p-300.html It's got adhesive on it so if you plan on repairing yours, you need to peal your old one off. That's really no big deal, the thing you REALLY need to worry about is damaging your keypad when removing it from your housing. You might want to order a new one just incase for that very reason. Be aware that unlike the V3c's flex cable which is a separate cable that connects to the main board to go up to the upper part of the phone, the V3's keyboard flex has its cable attached, which means you must open the top portion of your phone as well. Opening the bottom part of the phone is simple. Opening the top part is where things get slightly tricky, if you're not careful you could really damage your phone.

1), remove the bottom part (completelly)
a) do you know how to open the bottom part?
2) remove the cover on the top part
a) disconnect the keypad LCD Flex Cable
3) remove the two chrome "big screws" that allows it to open and close
4) CAREFULL!!!! WHEN YOU READY TO SEPARATE THE TOP PART FORM THE BOTTOM!!
a) make sure the Flex cable is loose, and take a screw driver, push the ping on the other side (try to do this at the edge of a desk or table) keep pressure until this side pops out. KEEP IN EYE ON THE OTHER SIDE!! that the Flex cable does not get cut out by separating the two sides.
5) Replace and pop the two sides together.
6) Put everything back together.
let me know if I need to be more specific

You can buy a new phone.....but I had the same exact problem with my motorola v3 phone. Every now and then both screens would work for a while and then turn completely black or sometimes white. Most of the time black. The keypads would light, I could make and receive phone calls, but I couldn't see anything on either screen. I moved all my contacts to the sim card and I got a new phone thru an upgrade with my company. But I was still determined to get the V3 to work again! I brought the phone to a few cell phone repairs shops and I was told that the connectors from the flex cable inside the phone sometimes get loose. Make sure they are tightly plugged in. If that doesn't help then the flex cable needs to be replaced. Some of these repair shops wanted up to $65.00 to replace the flex cable! I could replace the phone for much less than $65.00! So I decided to go to ebay and type in Motorola V3 Flex cable......hundreds of places came up that sell this flex cable. I found a place in my area and ordered one. It cost me $5.00 and I got it within 2 days! I looked online on how to install the flex cable and everything from how to disassemble the phone to installing the new flex cable and reassembling the phone was right there! I followed the instructions and I installed the new flex cable and the phone is as good as new!!! Both screens are working and I didn't loose any pictures or contacts from the phone!
All it cost me was $5.00 and about an hour of time! It even came with free shipping! Go to google and type in Motorola v3 black screen and look thru the solutions. Some of them will explain how to disassembe the phone and replace the flex cable with detailed pictures! You can buy the torque screw drivers at Home Depot or on ebay! Good Luck!
