Question about LG enV3 VX9200 Cell Phone

1 Answer

My LG-VX9200 external and internal screens went blank. The phone is otherwise in perfect working order. There is no water damage. I have tried turning it on and off, taking the battery out, etc. but it still comes up blank. The reception has gone fuzzy, too, and I cannot make outgoing calls.

Was there any shock damage that you are aware of? Any other kind of damage or any notable change you remember around the time the failure occurred?

Do you get any sound out of the speakers?

Does the "outside" keyboard function properly?

There's one connector on the main board in the "base" unit (the side with the QWERTY keyboard) and that has a flex-circuit that goes through one of the hinges to the boards in the display unit (the other side, with the two displays and the smaller keyboard.) If it were something simple, like that connector being dislodged, then any or all of the functions of the display unit (speakers, outside keyboard, and both displays) might be affected.

However, that connector is held in place by the case cover on the base unit, so it really shouldn't have any way to just "come out".

Given that, if it were *just* a broken display, I'd advise that it is possible to replace the display module, although if you're trying to do it yourself, I'd recommend having some electronics repair experience. I had an enV3 that was been damaged twice, and both displays were cracked, but it was otherwise fully functional; I was able to restore it by replacing the display module with a $38 unit from eBay. See this thread for a little more detail.

However, I'm confused by your comments "otherwise in perfect working order" but then later: "reception has gone fuzzy...cannot make outgoing calls." If it were truly *just* the displays, (and especially if there was a shock event involved...) I'd say a replacement of the display module *might* do the job. But given there are other issues, I'm not as confident that just replacing the display module has a good probability of solving things.

My phone has a blank screen


Are both displays blank, or only one? Is there any backlighting coming on? Any cracks visible? Was there any damage (dropping, etc.) that you remember around the time they went blank?

If you determine that your phone is actually turning on, do the other functions of the phone work? In other words, can you dial a number and hit "Send" and successfully make a call? Can you get sound out of the external speakers by pressing the little "speaker" key at the lower right of the inside keyboard?

If everything seems to work and the ONLY problem is the displays being blank, it is possible to replace the display module. If you have some electronics experience, and you are considering doing it yourself, see this thread for a little more detail about my experience (I did it successfully.) But you'd want to know that the display is the *only* problem before committing to replacing it.

Otherwise, there's not a lot of repair you can do on these things yourself.

Phone screen goes blank to a grey color (externallY) .


same problem, broke my screen, ordered a new screen off ebay and replaced it. now it works fine most of the time but sometimes external display freezes. sometimes goes black, sometimes goes multicolor pixelated (full screen, in blocks, or lines) when this happens sometimes touchpad still works, others not. removing battery usualy temporarily fixes.
