Hi, this is a very common problem with your type of phone and all the flip and slide phones, the problem you are having is going to be with the data ribbon that connects from the screen to the circuit board, what happens is that every time the phone is opened this ribbon moves so it keeps the screen connected at all times, but over time the little copper wires inside the ribbon become brittle and break, as your getting a white screen this proves that only one of the wires have broken as you still have power to the screen.
the problem you now have is that to solve the problem your going to need to get this ribbon replaced, the good news is that the part itself is really cheap and a phone shop should be able to replace it whilst you wait.
this is a very common problem so the cost of repair is low, how ever make sure you take you phone to a small phone shop and not one of the big branded shops as you will pay a lot less at a small phone shop.
im sorry their is no easy fix for your phone but without replacing this data ribbon their is no chance your phone will work,
if you could see any image from the broken lcd before changing it so your new lcd is not working or no installed right
and if not you may try the cable or the hard shock that broke your lcd effected the main board
The most common trouble for this, is the FLEX since it's slide type, most likely broken!!!
FLEX - a ribbon type wire, connecting LCD board and the main board of the unit.
Just replace the Flex with extra care. Good luck!!! Nomde....
You seem to have a issue with the Flex Ribbon Inside. The Display has a Flex ribbon that connects to the keypad area. there seems to be a fault with that ribbon. this is common problem with **** shell phones/ Slider phones.. best solution would be to take it to a repair shop. unless you have warranty.
