Nothing but black after replacing broken touch screen

Open the phone back up and unplug all the FLEX cables from the system board then plug all the FLEX cables back in, be sure that the flex cables are aligned correctly and full plugged in. Then try the phone again, I know there has been 4 times where I replaced an LCD and upon turning it on had nothing but black screen. Did what I said above and 3 times the LCD worked perfectly(must have been a FLEX cable not seated all the way) and the 4th time it was a bad LCD screen.

The internal screen on my LG Env Touch remains blank after opening. The interenal keypad lights up when opened, but not the screen. The phone did not get wet, to my knowledge, and was functioning properly...

Hi, most screen problems usually happen after a fall or a knock against a solid object. There are two things that might have happened here. One might be, the screen got a hairline crack and the connection to the lcd is broken. The other is that the lcd did not crack, but the connector flex cable is disconnected. The first requires a replacement lcd. The second requires an inspection to see if the flex is disconnected or broken. (You will have to open the phone). If you cannot DIY, then take it to a repair shop. Replacement lcd can be found on ebay.

Replaced the screen but there is no image coming up, just a lit up black screen.

if you could see any image from the broken lcd before changing it so your new lcd is not working or no installed right
and if not you may try the cable or the hard shock that broke your lcd effected the main board

Most problems like that deals with the Flex cable connecting the phones pcb board to the lcd (screen)
The flex cable seemed to be broken so you have to bring your phone to your nearest service center.

Hope it helps

Screen will not display

I have had the ribbon cable go defective in flip phones. In some phones that I had backlight went defective. These were not all Motorola.

The fix in my phones was to change the screen and ribbon cable. If the phone was out of warranty, I retired it and bought a new one. The cost of repair was too high in relation to the repair.

Broken Lcd screen

well its obvious you might need a screen. but before you buy that, if you've opened yur sidekick before or know how to, then try taking out the screen and taking it apart. The flex cable may not be put or or jus a bit tight or scrambled a bit....

My MPX220 internal LCD broke

I would personally suggest going to ebay. They carry many replacement parts for cell phones such as the Flex cable that you need, and are quite inexpensive as well. I guess figuring out how to install it is the tricky part. Good Luck!!!!
