    I Have an Sch a950, my phone's screen goes white, goes backwards, upside-down and all sorts of strange things. The thing is, after i mess around with it a bit (taking out the battery, turning it off, putting it in the charger) it goes back to normal, only to go back later on in the day. I'm thinking its some weird power issue, that when the phone is reset or more power is added, it fixes itself. I don't have the money for a new phone at the moment, what can be done?

    I have a Samsung U700 and now everything is weird. I did a master reset but nothing helps. And my warranty just ran out 2 months ago. That sucks!!! Please help. My subscription runs for another year.

My Samsung U700 had the same problem (display went back-to-front and colours all reversed and low-res.) It seems to be a problem with the flex cable (the cable between the main phone body and the sliding screen) wearing down and screwing up the data being carried between the display and the phone. Flex cables are cheap to buy and there's plenty of info online showing how to replace them yourself. Good-luck. Google: samsung u700 replacement flex cable

Why is my motorola baby monitor now displaying everything upside down and backwards after a power outage?


Hope the monitor is not placed upside down. Just joking.
The power outage must have interfered with the control and signals. Best to try the reset and registration process described on page 17 of user guide under help.

Everything on the screen is back wards and upside down! Tried pulling battery, did not work...


Hi,problem can be solved.It's not a battery fault,it's a flex problem.

The flex is located inside the phone and it allows the screen to display,So when the flex gets damaged the display will be disturb and it will start display backward pictures.

When you replace the flex of the phone,problem will be solved.

Take care.

My phone suddenly shows everything upside down and backwards on the screen. Do you know how to fix this?


Hello, when a phone does not display on the screen and you can here start up tone, it means that either the screen or the flex that is connected to screen board is faulty.Needs to be replaced.

You have to test for both the screen and the flex.must be one.You can tak it to any nearby repair store around you for assistance.

Take care.

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)

Upside down characters


Silly question - are you holding it the right way up?
If you are, there may be a display setting for rotation.
