  • jax_98 Apr 22, 2009

    I recently dropped my Motorola Razr V3 into a cup of water, don't ask, lol. This is my second one so any warranty is void. I removed the battery and dried with a cloth immediately. However not to long after I put the battery back in and tried luck. Next day i tried again and the screen came on and all seemed well..until I tried to text..buttons wont work. I then took it apart again and put it into a container of rice over night. Tried it again..keys light up, vibrates with current texts..etc..however no screen..just black. I have a back up Razr for parts, my question do i go about finding the correct components to switch out? Help me please..I feel naked with out my phone!lol

You need to advise me if you have recently wet the phone at all, if so then dry the fac with a medium heat hairdryer blowing onto it. do not open the phone up, you will loose the guarantee on the phone or take it to your dealer.

Has white screen, bit everything sounds like it works

Hi,when a phone has a white screen display and everything works fine, is usually a screen display problem or a flex problem

In other to know if it's a screen problem you will need to test the flex first.

The flex is a thread like object inside the phone and it is located inside the phone and it also controls the function of the display of the screen, The locate the flex you will need to disassemble the phone.

After testing the flex with a new flex, if it does not display,that means the flex is not ok,But if it does display, that means the flex was the problem all along.

I would if you don't really have the knowledge to disassemble the phone in other to course more damage,you can take it to an expert in phone repairs for assistance.

The price is not that expensive to replace.

Feel free to pass your comment.

Thanks for using fixya...

NO display on touchscreen when slide out the keyboard

Hello there,

The problem you are facing with your phone is as a result of a bad flex connector cable which is attached behind your screen.the flex carries the signal from the panel mechanism of the phone and interpretes it on the screen,since the flex cable is bad nothing whatsoever can be transmitted on the screen.

The solution is to take apart your phone ,starting from the screws behind the battery cover,

You will find a ribbon like cable which is attached directly behind the LCD screen of your phone,this is the flex connector cable that needs to be replaced in order to restore your phone back to a normal working condition.

Best of luck.

Touch screen not working

Hi, The problem with your phone is as a result of a bad flex connector cable which connects the touch screen to the panel,it's weak and needs to be replaced.
However,the solution is to take apart the phone and remove the flex cable which is in form of a ribbon situated behind the touch screen and replace it with a newly purchased flex cable.

Thanks and take care

Touch Keys and Screen

I think this a problem related to the flex cable that connects the main phone body to the sliding screen. Over time the flex cable wears down as it slides and results in a whole range or problems such as: display acting weird (eg. mirror-image and inverted colours), speaker not working, off-button not working etc.
Flex cables are cheap to buy on ebay (a few dollars) and there's internet sites that show you how to open the phone and replace them. (google: samsung u700 replacement flex cable)

your screen dosnt display anything?I am not quite sure what your asking but ill take a crack at it changed the housing and when you put the phone back together the lcd stoped working,if this is the case you either disconnected your lcd or you damaged the flex cable to the lcd,either way you need to open your phone back up just the top part where the lcd is,you should beable to see the flex cable coming from the phone to the lcd if it looks connected disconect and reconnect and try it if this does not work you may need a new flex cable wich means that you may have to get a whole new keypad cause the flex cable usually only disconnects from one side,well good luck

Broken Lcd screen

well its obvious you might need a screen. but before you buy that, if you've opened yur sidekick before or know how to, then try taking out the screen and taking it apart. The flex cable may not be put or or jus a bit tight or scrambled a bit....

Screen turn Black

Put your phone in a bag, put it in the freezer...
It will might work until it warms up again..

It might be your screen, it might be the body of the phone...

for the screen...

get a TORX 6 screwdriver

take it apart
Google for V220 take apart/ disassembly

WIggle the tiny flex cable connector
near the hinge.. still no luck ????

Buy another V220 on ebay

gently take the phone apart and sub in the whole
screen shell and front of keypad.

DO NOT TRY TO remove the screen from the body section..
you will destroy to the teeny tiny flex cable.

Still problems?
then its the body... your phone is useless
undo what you did, re-assemble the parts phone,
learn how to flash the spare phone..

USB adapter
Motorola P2K drivers for XP
Motorola or other flash tools
enter phone service mode
connect phone to pc
flash back to V 364 firmware
run unlocker
flash unlock firmware
enter dummy unlock
reflash to v365 firmware

More details googling above and reading lots

OR.. Pay $10-20 have someone else do it...

I wont, too much work...

LG KG 800 slide

it is a pain to open these. 1. remove the battery & undo the 4 black screws. LG use a thread locking compound (loctite) on all the screws so they will be a **** to undo. 2.Prise the back cover off. 3. Pop apart the 2 rectangular connectors at the top of the keypad circuit board. 4. Lift the top board slightly & pop apart the ribbon/flex cable from the top board. The big silver bit comes off with the flex cable. There is a small bit of adhesive on this so be gentle. 5. undo the 6 silver screws holding the slide mechanism together & lift the slide off over the flex cable. 6. pop the 2 screw covers off the top of the phone then undo the 6 screws holding the front cover on. 7. pop the flex cable off. then the touch pad connector. then the camera lens connector. Gently pull the screen circuit board out of the front cover. Careful as sometimes the speaker is glued in place. 8. Unclip the lcd connector & gently remove the small battery looking thing (it's got red & blue wires on it) from the back of the lcd panel. It's glued on. Have fun. It took me ages to work this out.
