Hi this is a very common problem with all flip and slide phones and even laptops and netbooks, the problem you are having is with the data ribbon that runs from the screen to the circuit board in the bottom half of the phone, what happens is that this thin ribbon has several single strand copper wires running through it, now when you open and close the phone this ribbon bends to keep the connection with the screen when you open and close the phone, now over time the copper wires get brittle then break causing the white screen that you are getting on your phone.

the ribbon should not have broke after 6 months so if you can take the phone back explain that you have spoken to a phone expert and he told you this should have lasted at least 12months and ask them if they will fix it for you for free.

if they dont then the part itself cost next to nothing to buy and its cheap to have fitted as it is such a common fault so if you have to pay for the repair take the phone to a small phone shop and not a big branded one as the bigger brands will charge alot more as they send the phones off to be fixed. but if you go to a small highstreet store thats owned by one person or even a market stall these should have the parts and should do the repair whilst you wait.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

You should contact the people or person from whom you obtained the phone if still in warranty. As the phone might be dead, at which you cannot do anything. Hope I Helped!

MOTOROLA Z3 PROBLEM


I've got the same problem!
Cracked my screen and when I tried to replace it with one I bought off eBay I got nothing but a white screen when I turned it on! Returned that screen and got another one from a different seller and still get the white screen. So I'm thinking its not the LCD screen, unless I just have bad luck. The keypad is also new, but now I'm gonna try to replace the ear piece flex cable set, because I can't figure out what else could be wrong with it. The phone powers on and operates as normal calls (incoming/outgoing with texts); I can even hear out of the ear piece.

So... Anybody have any ideas? anybody? breaker breaker...haha

White screen


I have the same problem with my z3. I left my phone on the table, and all of a sudden, my normal screen was replaced by a flashing white screen. I called T-Mobile, and they had me try to reset the phone. You can do this by going to settings, then Master Reset. This will restore the original settings, and the rep said that sometimes this helps. Master Clear is the next step, which wipes everything off the phone. Nothing has worked for my phone, so I have to call Motorola today to try and get a new one. Good luck with your phone.
