the problem simply is the flex of the phone, which is the mechanism that is connecting the screen to the keypad of the phone.
it sometimes work when the mechanism connects a little, that is why you can type on the keypad.
its quite difficult fixing it on your own, but if you want to, you will have to get a replacement flex,
get the appropriate screw driver that matches the screws on the phone,
carefully unscrew the parts of the phone,
locate the flex & replace it with the replacement flex you have with you,
carefully screw it back together and you will find your phone in good condition again.
or better still you can take the phone to an expert for repair.

a bit of research I understand that the phone uses a
Capacitive touchscreen technology. Wiki this and you will find that the
plastic strip attached to the underneath of the front cover of the
phone (with its circuit ribbon that connects to the main circuit board
of the phone) has a sticky substance holding it air tight to the
underside of the front cover. This sticky substance is Indium Tin Oxide
(ITO) and conducts a continuous electrical current accross to the
sensor. So if you have bought a new cover from ebay etc like I have and
replaced the new cover with the old scratched one, you need to get
yourself some ITO sputtered onto the screen to make its capacitive
touchscreen technology work again.... hope this is a more technical
answer than some of the idiots that post unhelpful solutions to
get help of authorised service centre

Hi, Lg Xenon GR500 cell phone`s touch screen is black it still works.these are usually caused by the flex of the phone.
The flex of the phone is located inside the phone, it controls the functions of the screen an also the keypads of the phone.
The flex is a thread like object that is located inside the phone. To see the flex, you will need to disassemble the phone to get to the flex of the phone.
After replacing the phone flex, your done.
Also it might be the screen of the phone. But in other to know if it's the screen, you will need to test a new flex.
You can get a replacement flex from any of the phone repair stores around you.
Hope it helps.
Thanks for using fixya...
