Question about LG VX5500 Cell Phone
Hi this is a very common problem with all flip and slide phones this problem also affects laptops and netbooks and the problem is the same solution with all of these.
now the problem you are having is with the date ribbon that keeps the screen connected to the circuit board in the bottom of the phone, this is connected by a thin data ribbon, now inside this ribbon is several single strand copper wires and over time and use these copper wires break and this then gives you the white screen.
now their is nothing wrong with your phone and it is working you have just lost the connection with the screen.
now as this is such a common fault then this make the part (the screen data ribbon) cheap to buy and it is really cheap to get fitted.
the problem is you will need to take it into a phone shop to have the work done as you need special tools to take the phone apart and fit the new part.
if you take the phone to a small independent phone shop then these will charge a lot less and should fix it whilst you wait if you take it to a big branded shop then you will have to let them send you phone off and this will take a couple of weeks and they will charge you for this service so taking it to a small phone shop will be your cheapest and quickest option.
i do a lot of these repairs myself so know its not a big job to do.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
