My Samsung Impression screen turned completely black. The keyboard still turns on, and the screen vibrates and everything, but I cant do much more because the screen is black. It has no water damage,or...

I think you tried to reboot it and than restore it. If that does not work you may need a trip to the Apple store or call Apple tech support.
The second way:ADDIN TIMER software installation, set up at 2 am, 4:00, 6:00, 8:00 and 1:00 automatic reboot.

Samsung Impression touch screen not working, so am unable to retrieve contacts, photos, etc. AT&T said they couldn't help.


What you need to do is to calibrate your screen.

There is a code to do that,type in the code using the keyboard and use the keyboard "enter key" when done typing. A screen message will come up briefly. Something about processing and that the phone will shut off and restart. After the restart the touch screen should work again.

code: *2767*3855#

If problem persists,you should replace the flex cable and digitizer screen.This should solve the problem

It's on and makes sounds but the screen is like completly black!

If you cannot get the screen to come back, by turning the phone off/on or by pulling the battery and putting it back in and restarting it, you will have to bring it to the tech at phone store you do business with. They may be able to fix it but may suggest a new phone. You can try giving it a light tap or moving around the slide keyboard where the wires come through to the screen. It could be a bad connection in the phone or a bad screen.

Samsung impression cell phone touch screen goes black when i use the keyboard.


there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is going black when you use the keyboard.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will not go black again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.

Good luck.

Screen broke

Please contact a cell telephone repair facility in your area or your service provider. You probably cannot get the parts, you probably dont have the tools. If you start it, there will probably be no salvaging what is left of your telephone.

I know you dont like this and Im sorry.

Thanks for your interest in
