Well, what you need to do is take out the battery first of all. Second of all, you should try baking the phone in the oven on the lowest setting it has, for like 10 or 20 min and let it dry out. It may work after that. If not, have your phone provider back up your phone numbers, and then get a new phone. AND, if you dont really care, you COULD soak the phone in distilled water to cleanse it of any impurities and then heat it again to dry it out.

I droped my lg virgin rumor touch and The touch screen cracked but when I turn it on it stays black. What could I do?


If you won't see anything on screen,check if the phone is booting or turning on,if it turns on,display is probably the problem.but if doesn't power?software problem is the main cause.and with this,need to replace LCD as well as touch screen that was damage too.

If your mobile has a warranty,you can bring it to the service center for spare parts replacement.If you try to open it and it's under warranty,this will void you warranty and unable to benefit free of service charge.

I droped it and the screen wont turn on


Hello,

Since you said the phone drop from you, it is possible that the screws that attach the screen of your phone is not tight anymore.

I suggest you get a torx6 screw driver, power off the phone, remove the battery and turn the the phone over.

Carefully remove the front cover of your phone that leads you to your phone screen.

Use the torx6 screw driver to tighten all the screws of your screen very well to the panel of of your phone.

Recouple your phone back, put the battery and power on, the screen should display.

But if the screen did not display, it means the flex on your phone is bad and will need to be replaced.,

So change the flex if tightening of the screen did not work, so change the flex on your phone and your phone will display.

Take care.

What does it mean when my phone is saying it needs intial programming. i droped in water but it still turned on and seemed to be be working then it started saying it need intial programming on the screen....


Hello,

when a phone drops in water it needs to be serviced before use, cause the water has damaged the phone board.

service the phone so that the water in the phone will dry up completely.

Have a nice day.

Droped my phone into water while back trying to fix it now and goes to blue screen and says bootloader usb init


if you did not take the battery out as soon as you pulled it out of the water it is probily no good because the circuit board was fried from the electric current that the battery was feeding the phone. but for future ref. if droped in the water remove batt asap and take phone apart and dry with a q tip and put back to gether and let it sit for a bout a day to let all the water get out of the phone and then place the batt back in it and turn it on.

Have a phone that droped in water trying to fix it because screen is white and wont show menu


If you've turned it on after it was in water, it is probably toast. You need to let it dry out for at least a week before even attempting to turn it on again. If that doesn't work, then the electronics on the inside have all shorted out and will need to be replaced.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

Droped


hi,

    this might be because the water has entered in the inbuilt software of ur phone..so do one thing open ur phone as much as  as u can..put it in sunlight for 2-3hrs continuously ..it will dry up all the water/moisture  from ur phone and then try  & if it doesnt work than u need to go to service centre.

 

Thanks
