Question about Motorola Mobility Rival A455 Cell Phone

1 Answer

Rival A455 screen is still white even after updating the phone.

My A455 screen is white and I was told this was a firmware/software issue. I did the update for the phone, however, the problem soon reoccurred. I was told that there is an issue with the flex and I was wondering if it was possible to fix this yourself before sending it off for repairs. Thanks.

Do you have warranty? if you do, then send it for waranty replacement. if not, suggest that you send it to a repair shop. replacing the ribbon is a very tricky issue. one small mistake can end up frying your device

I need to know how to master reset my motorola rival a455 because I. Forgot my phone lock code.

Hello reapermc303,
Yes the A455 can be unlocked with software. The software you need is called 'Mototools 6.2' and although I do not see the A455 listed I have contacted them and they assure me that this phone can be unlocked with Mototools 6.2 as the firmware is the same as the A630 which the software also unlocks.

I have used this software and it does genuinely work 100%.

Hey , My Motorola Rival screen is just all white. I can hear it ring and stuff but I cant read the messages. Ive tried taking out the battery, charging it, and nothing works. The phones not even 3 months...

There is a cable that conects the two sides of the phone... refered to as the flex cable when this goes bad it will cause display and sometimes speaker issues, your phone is still under warrenty take it back into your office to have it repaired. there is no quick fix to that problem.

My phones screen turns white and takes long to go


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 not displaying.

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 display 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.

Restarts itself.

I have had phones do this also. Even with a new battery, so it appears to be a bug in the firmware. I would take it to your carrier and ask them to see if there is any updates for the firmware of your phone.

How do i fix the solid white screen that is on my phone

For the Motorola Rival A458 when the screen turnes white it is a softweare issue. And it is a known problem by Verision, so to fix this problem you bring you and your messed up phone to a Verizon store and they will exchange it for FREE!!! (I know because i have a rival and just got of the phone with customer support)
