Broke LG Shine in half

The flip screen and main part of my phone is completely separated. it appears as though an orange ribbon that connects the two is split in half. if anyone can help me fix the problem, instead of paying up to 400 to get it repaired, please let me know.

The screen on my phone went black. I cant read any text messages. I can receive calls though.


Hello,

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 any picture.

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 picture 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.

LG VX5300 Flip Phone broke in half.


Hello,

Your phone can work again, all you need to do is to get the flexi cable and fix it back in place.

It is not expensive.

It is about $15.

To fix this, these are the processes to follow;
  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. Turn your phone over so the battery cover is facing you. Remove the battery cover and battery.
  3. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers and unscrew the aerial.
  4. Remove the 6 screws,
  5. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers & screws above the main screen,
  6. Prise the back part away from the rest of the phone by running your fingernail between where the two parts meet,
  7. Unclip the ribbon,
  8. After removing the ribbon cable, carefully lift the metal part that is beneath the phone. Another ribbon will be attached which should be carefully removed.
  9. Take the circuit board & keypad out and you'll be left with what's below it.
  10. Next remove the top part of the phone by pushing the housing in whilst pulling the hinge, which the top part is attached via, away from the phone. This is the hardest part and you'll need to bend and manipulate the housing the get the hinge out. Be firm but be careful so you don't snap the housing.
  11. To open the top half of the phone and get to the screen, run your fingernail between where the two parts of the housing meets,
  12. Try to open up the top part by splitting it open with a credit card,
  13. replace the ribbon and,
  14. Reverse the procedure for reassembly and it's finished.
Take care

I dropped my LG Shine flip and half the screen is black


If you have done this kind of repair before, you could look on eBay for a replacement screen and price will vary. If you don't know how to perform a repair of this magnitude, you;re better off and will come out cheaper just buying another phone. If living without text doesn't bother you, no loss.

No display in my lg shine cu720


What happened in the first place to make your lcd screen go out? there is a chance that the problem was not the screen, but the phone it self. did you drop it in water, or jus cracked screen?

How do you replace the lcd screen on A LG shine KE970


Take off the back plate that houses the battery, undo the four screws, then look where the bottom of the battery is just below are two cover caps remove and undo the two screws below now separate the cover. There is a circuit board under neath the panel unplug may seem tight but go careful, underneath this there are a futher six screws undo these and the two halves of the phone will separate. Now undo all the screws you can see here including the two that are under the two covers at the top they look like moulding marks separate the halves, undo the screws on the roller switch,lift this and you will find a ribbon connector that appears to be glued it's not, go careful and separate. Congratulations you have now removed the LCD. All you have to do now is remember which screw goes where and reverse the whole process. Good luck.

My lg shine flip phone just developed a problem with the screen. I cannot see anything although it appears to be backlit...help


That most probably means that the display connector between the flips is torn.
It happens with flips and slider phones.
Contact to the nearby LG care center.

there is a ribbon connector between the bottom half and the top half of your phone, this carries all the information for the top half ie picture & sound etc. It is more than likely that this cable is damaged someway. you would need to disassemble the phone and check the plastic ribbon carefully to be sure.
