Question about LG enV3 VX9200 Cell Phone

My daughter's LG enV3 has a broken internal LCD screen. I can find replacement screens available and am somewhat adept at repairs, but I'm looking for a video or instructions for replacing the phone's screen. Any resources available?

------- LG enV3 LCD display repair/replacement -------

I got one of the $38 replacement screens from that eBay supplier. It came super fast - they must have shipped it the same day.

Replacing it is no minor task, but I did accomplish it successfully, and the one module does replace both the outside and inside screens.

I have 30 years of electronics experience, and it took me about 2-1/2 hours. A decent portion of that was just carefully figuring out how to get things taken apart, etc. If I had to do it again (and I hope I don't...) it would probably go a little faster.

For tools, the pry-bar tool included with the display is *very* helpful, but that tool only gets you as far as removing the covers.
For 2 of the screws in tight spots, it will help to have a Phillips #00 screwdriver with a narrow shaft a couple inches long and a decent size handle for good grip (i.e. better than a typical cheap "jeweler's screwdriver" with a skinny handle.) And here's the kicker: you'll also need a good, clean, reasonably fine-tipped soldering iron, and reasonably confident soldering skills to "undo" and resolder connections in two places. It's not super-fine pitch stuff, but there's a soldered mechanical attachment of a connector in one spot, and a two-conductor joint between two flex-circuits in another.

So I would not characterize it as quite as simple as "buy the display unit and use the tool to put it in.." There's a lot more to it than that, and I don't think I'd advise it for someone without at least some experience in electronic repair.

After all that, if there's interest, I may post a more detailed review of the process somewhere.

Having said all that, the darn thing worked perfectly - both inside and out - when we powered it back up!

I cant think of any right now, but a total replacement of the phone would be good.

Can the large display be replaced or repaired. It


If that's the only problem, and all other functions of the phone work, an enV3 replacement display module is available on eBay for around US$38. (This is a single module that incorporates both the inside and outside display screens.)

I successfully replaced this display module in my daughter's phone, which had been dropped twice, cracking first one, then both screens.

However, I wouldn't recommend attempting this yourself unless you have some electronics repair experience, as well as patience, good eyesight for close-up work, and some steady-handed soldering skills. See this thread for some of my comments on this repair.

My LG EnV3 was dropped and now is white when the phone turns on and the internal screen just shows colors. help me please!


Dropping it may have dislodged one of the internal components. I would bring it to the Verizon store and see if they can fix it or give you a new phone.

Is it my imagination or is it true my new env3 does not support t9 or preemptive text?


From the front screen and keyboard:
(i.e. with the phone closed)
While entering a message, hit the main "OK" button for "Options".
Item #2 in this menu is "Entry Mode."
T9 is on this list.

Operating from the internal LCD screen and QWERTY keyboard:
Hit OK to get to main menu
Select "Messages"
Once in that menu, the left option key beneath the main LCD screen is "Settings" - hit that
On that menu, item #2 is "Entry Mode" where you can select T9

I have read of difficulties getting the enV3 T9 mode to add new "user" words that you might want to program into the T9 dictionary, so don't be surprised if you have trouble with that.
