Hello,

The problem with the phone is the flexi ribbon thet slides the phone up and down, it is not properly seated that is why it is losing contact with the main board of the phone, hereby resulting in blank screen while dialing or making a call.

The flexi ribbon is known as the flex, so as soon as you replace the flex of your phone, it will work perfectly fine once again.

Have a repairman fix the flex of your phone, and it will be in good condition once again.

Take care

    Not necessary he didn't say he slide the phone he just said he cant see the dialer an i think its happens when he changes from the menu to dialer whit out using the slider if you reset your phone tho factory settings it would work just fine for a time but it will do it again I think is a problem with the version 2.1 and the phone try upgrading to any version of android 2.2 if it work just fine let us know

    The version of the phone does not determine if your phone goes black or not, it is a hardware device that operates the screen. I am very familiar with such problem and definitely sure it is a flex problem. The firmware only changes if the version is changed and that does not in any way deal with making calls on the phone.

Battery saving Tips
==============

b. Setting -> Phone -> Display -> Light Time-Out (lesser time to save battery but annoying if too short while you are playing games)

Samsung impression cell phone touch screen goes black when i use the keyboard.


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 going black when you use the keyboard.

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 not go black 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.

Phone is muted...No one can hear me when I am calling, or answering a call. I can hear them fine. Phone shows "muted"?? How do you "un" mute?


Receiving Calls
1. To answer a call, touch or open the slide.
 If the slide is closed, simply slide it up.
 If the slide is closed, press the Voice
Commands key twice, then touch .
 If the slide is open and the touch buttons are
lit, touch .
NOTE If you touch Left Soft Key [Quiet] while the
phone is ringing, the ringing or vibration is muted
for that call.
NOTE If you touch Right Soft Key [Ignore] while the
phone is ringing, the call will end.



Mute Function
The Mute Function prevents the transmission of
your voice to the caller. To quickly activate Mute
touch Left Soft Key [Mute], then to unmute
touch Left Soft Key [Unmute].

NOTE! while doing this you must call someone then while talking with him touch Left Soft Key [Unmute] to Unmute

Hope it help you out ^_^
