Phone doesn't answer when flipped open


Hi

The phone did not answer when flip up because you did not activate it.

To activate go to call, go to answer by flip and click yes.
Any time a call come in and you flip it will answer.

My lg vx8700 has only been used for a month and the screen goes blank on it about 7-15 seconds after I flip it open.


Hello,

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.
This is a common problem 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 will suggest you replace the flex on the screen of your phone to solve the problem.
If you cannot change the flex yourself, you can take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed or replaced.

Take care.

The phone works, but the screen stays blank.


Hello,

if your phone is not a slide or flip phone, then maybe the screen is faulty and needs replacement or the screen as loosed contact and not well connected to its right position.

But is your phone is a slide or flip phone, then there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem should be 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.

My samsung screen is white but it works ive tried everything, this hbas happen before screen going white and the battery had to be without juice to come back. it works but ithe screeen is white


hi, the main reason the screen turns whits is due to the thin ribbon that sends the data from the circuit board to the screen being damaged what happens is that the thin copper wires that are inside the ribbon ware and then break causing a short to the screen and this is what turns the screen white. this happens on most flip and slide phones as the ribbon moves when you slide or flip the phone so over time it becomes brittle and you lose the connection and this turns the screen white.

sometimes it will right itself if you open and close the phone a couple of times but this wont be a long term fix how ever it may be that bad that this will no longer work, its not expensive to get this ribbon replaced but taking you phone to a small phone shop would be your cheapest option.
