    Same problem, here. I can make and receive calls, but I can't see anything on the main LCD display screen but a blue screen. I've been looking for info on the Web about this kind of problem with cell phone LCD displays. It could be that I allowed my phone to be exposed to the cold (it has been very cold here in Chicago this winter), and the crystals in the LCD froze. My impression is that this damage is permanent and it's best to just purchase a new phone. And then try to keep the phone warm and dry -- don't carry it in an outside pocket or your purse, but an inside pocket close to your body. I don't know what else to do.

    I have the same problem after 1 1/2 years.
    Just posting to see if this is a common problem with this phone.

    Same problem here. But after a month, the screen magically came back to life!! It worked for a couple of weeks and then DIED again! Actually, I figured something out--if I activate the camera, then lines appear all up and down (as if it really WANTS to work...). As soon as the camera is off, only the backlight is on (black screen).

    The phone is young--less than 2 yrs old.

    Other than the dead screen issue, great phone!

I have the same problem. I've searched the net and have found no solutions. The dude at the Sprint kiosk wants to charge $50 to fix it, but I can just buy a new phone on ebay for much less.

I'm done with Sprint and can't wait to switch providers when my contract is up in June!!

Why does my screen go dark when I am making a call


It should go dark when you put throne up to your face. That keeps it from getting to warm on your face. If you don't want it to go dark, you can turn the auto dim off in settings under display. It will use more battery, but it shouldn't go dim. Then that may be under another setting.

Dark screen


IT is the inverter. The backlights usually turn the screen orangish color before they fail.

I have a proview lcd screen and it palys the tv shows in back ground but it's a dark screen like dark blue no picture. Volume and everything working but just no picture. What can i do.


Show a torch light on the screen for a distance, and if you can see the picture, the backlight is not lighting up. Check for its settings on the remote, if you have that option. Check also the settings of brightness/contrast/sharpness/color. If you still have problems, please call in a qualified service technician.

My brightness control does not work just turned on and can not hardly see anything it is up and running what now


Have you tested it with an external monitor?

I would say you either have a damaged inverter board or screen baclight lamp. Usually the inverter board fails in one of the following ways:

1. When you turn on the laptop, the screen lights up for a short period of time and then goes dark. You still can see an image but it is very dark, almost invisible and definitely not usable. When you restart the laptop, the screen lights up and then goes dark again. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
2. Your laptop turns on but the screen remains dark all the time. You still can see a very dim image outline. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
3. The laptop screen works fine for hours or even days, but sometimes it goes very dark as it mentioned above. When you restart the laptop, the screen works fine again.

Inverter failure symptoms are very similar to backlight lamp failure symptoms and in most cases you cannot tell which one is causing the problem until you replace either the inverter board or the backlight lamp. From my personal experience, inverter boards fail more often than backlight lamps. If you have to guess, replace the inverter first.

The screen is dark blue instead of showing me


Try a reset of the phone. Take the battery and if there's a chip, remove that too. then let it sit for about 2 minutes. Reinstall everything and reboot. See if that gets everything back to normal...

My pantech duo phone doesnt work anymore!


From the way it sounds, mine started doing this yesterday. Everytime i turn on the phone, theres just a backlight and nothing else. well the only way i noticed to get it to work, atleast until i can get a new phone is, to leave it slid up because it wont do anything if its closed or slid sideways. And while it slid up, I either have to call it from my home phone or recieve a text message. I'm not sure why but that made the screen come on so I could atleast check everything. It doesnt always work but it does most of the time. I hope this helps. Just play with and figure out what it takes to get your screen on. I'm not sure how to permanently fix it though.

    If the Backlight Auto-Off setting is turned ON, the backlight will turn off after a set period of time. Press any button to turn the screen back on.
    To check the Backlight Auto-Off setting:
    1. From the XMB™ menu, go to icn_settings.gif (Settings) > [Power Settings] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    2. Highlight [Backlight Auto-Off] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    3. Select a time interval and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button to save. Select OFF if you wish to disable this feature.

  • Check the Auto Sleep setting
    If the Auto Sleep setting is turned ON, the screen will turn dark after a set period of time. Press any button to turn the screen back on.
    To check the Auto Sleep setting:
    1. From the XMB™ menu, go to icn_settings.gif (Settings) > [Power Settings] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.
    2. Highlight [Auto Sleep] and press the icn_btnx_color.gif button.

Backlight not turning on when phone is turned on (Razr)


There is a small cable, inside the phone, near the hinge, that can come loose or unplugged. You should have this checked out by someone who can service it. For them it's a simple procedure of reinserting the cable fully.

Backlight display not working


Hey Dannes1956,

The Motorola V3m has a light sensor, which is visible just above the right soft key -- the key above the CLR button. This light sensor turns the backlight on when you press a key in the dark and disables the keypad backlight when you are in a well-lit area.

Your phone sounds like it's operating normally. I believe they disabled the option to activate or deactivate that feature.

Hope this helps,
cHiPz.
