It is best to take the phone to a mobile service center and have a professional tech replaced the cable for you.

How to replace the flex ribbon cable


Yes, this can happen when opened and closed too often. It's just the nature of the cable, as it only has so many open/close cycles before failure.

My front screen is bropken.It is all white and blank


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,

The screen on my phone went black. I cant read any text messages. I can receive calls though.


Hello,

there is nothing wrong with your screen, 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.

The problem is common 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 would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.

Good luck.

I have a Motorola Razr V3. Very recently the exterior and main screen went black. The phone itself still works (I can still call people and receive calls) but I can not see anything on the screens. Do you...


Hello,

The reason your phone interior and exterior screen went black is because there is a problem with the flex of the phone.

The flex is the mechanism like a ribbon that connects the screen to the panel of the phone.

All you have to do is to replace the flex of the phone.

To replace it on your own, the process to do this are as following;
  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver (Torx 5 screwdriver).
  2. Remove the four rubber stoppers surrounding the screen to reveal four screws. Remove these screws.
  3. You can now remove the front cover. To do this, use a credit card to lever the cover up. The cover clips on and the levering motion will unclip it. Start at the top, then unclip the cover at the bottom, then both sides.
  4. Now detach the camera from the phone. Simply pull the ribbon away from the phone to release it.
  5. Now unplug the other ribbon. The ribbon attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up to unplug it.
  6. The ribbon you just unplugged is the flex of the phone, so you have to unscrew the lower part of the phone to remove it completely.
  7. To open the lower part, you have to open the back cover and remove the battery,
  8. Unscrew the screws you see, than split it open with a credit card or the tip of your finger, apply a little force to open it.
  9. Then unscrew the board, you will see where the other end of the ribbon is connected on the board, then you can remove it and fix a new one.
  10. Reverse the process to reassemble the phone together.
Take care

Blank display


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.
