    I had practically the exact same problem. For a while,(3-5 days), bits and lines of the sceens showed while calls were still working, then one day nothing. Only one horizontal, blue line across the inside screen and now I cant even power it up to download anything onto the micro SD card. ***Although, occasionally... the "VerizonWireless" Logo appears on the front screen PERFECTLY! **NOTE** This problem began only 3 weeks after I received this phone new, and although (at that time) I spoke with tech support about the problem... they would only send me a 'refurbished' phone as a replacement because waited to request the replacement for a few more days while trying to save/download my data because tech support told me only the contacts could be transferred by them. Pretty sad customer service after being a so called "Merit Customer" for 5 years. :-(

    My enV just started this by only showing the image on the right side and the rest dark blue, but sometime if I open it then close it, it's fine. I really like this phone and have only had it for 4 DAYS!!!

    The exact same thing happened to me. About 2 months ago, the lines breifly appeared on my screen and then went away, but this morning, i used my phone to text someone, put it in my backpack like always and when i checked it about 10 minutes later, it had the lines and they havent gone away. I went to the Verizon store and the guy looked at it, checked the battery for water damage, and then gave me the number to call for a new phone. The ppl were all very nice and they said I should get a "new" one by Friday (in 3 days). Hopefully this isnt a common problem. Im sooo nice to my phone and i like it a lot. At least the Verizon ppl didnt try to say it was my fault and that I broke it and try to make me pay $900 for a new computer screen like Apple did for my MacBook.

Problem with lines going down the front screen.

Posted on Nov 13, 2008

If you got your phone from a verizon retailer new, you can call 1-866-406-5154, it's a verizon number, and tell them about the problem you're having with your phone and they'll send you a new one. you have to send the old one back but.. i'm on my 3rd env in the past 3 months and after the 3rd one they give you a new different phone, i guess of your choice, so if my 3rd one messes up (i just got it in the mail today so i t hasn't had time yet), i'll get a different phone. but i've had the same problem with my first 2 env's and they replaced it for me for free.

My screen is black too. It was working perfectly fine, but then, my grandmother was carrying my phone in her purse and her purse strap broke and her purse fell, and the only thing that fell out of her purse was my phone and it wasn't even from that high up at all. For like a day it was working but it had lines going through the screen and now it's completely black...:(
I don't know what to do.

I threw my phone at a wall and now the screen has lines of different colors on it. what do i do to fix it?

Sorry, but there is no way to fix this yourself. The screen will need to be replaced, usually cost around $100-$150, depending on the phone. Once again, sorry that it can't be fixed easily. Happy Holidays!

Sorry but your LCD needs replacement. Take it to the apple store and see if they'll give you a replacement. If they don't there are third party iPhone Repair Services that can fix it for you. There are also free iPhone Repair guide that show you how to fix it yourself.

Black lines on LCD screen appeared and keep growing. I believe they are dead pixels. How do I fix this?

The black lines on your screen is getting damaged the only remdy to it is that it needs to be changed....

it is caused by too much sliding of your phone,making the flex go weak....

Contact your nearest repairer,,

note //After fixing it,make sure you limit your sliding of your phone ..

You ca even make and recieve call without even sliding your phone. take care.

If a cell phone is dropped and the screen has white lines up and down can it be fixed?

White lines are indicative of a cracked/damaged main board.
If it were just the display, the pixels would be black - or it would look like a pen exploded (black splotches)
The board can be replaced - however it may be more economical to get a new phone.

Big black dot on main screen

well...unfortunately that cant be fixed. you can try a software flash, which would just require that u take it to a vzw direct store, and back up ur memory because it could be erased. otherwise, ur phone has a 1 year warranty, take it to a store or call tech support to get a replacement.
