Iwant to change screen on phone


    • 1 Power off your cell phone completely by holding down the power button for four or five seconds. Turn the phone over and remove the back plate. Slide your fingernail underneath the battery and pop the battery out of the phone.
    • 2 Locate the SIM card if your mobile phone is a GSM style phone. Pull back the metal covering over the SIM card and then remove the card. Set it aside.
    • 3 pixel.gif Removing the RF grommet Find the plastic RF grommet at the bottom of the phone near where the battery was located. Grab the grommet with a pair of tweezers and remove it from the phone.
    • 4 pixel.gif Removing the bottom cover Insert the tweezers into the hole on the side of the phone opposite from where the RF grommet was located. Use the tweezers to pull up on the latch inside the hole to unlock the bottom plastic antenna cover. Lift the cover off of the phone and set it aside.
    • 5 pixel.gif Metal plate Pull out the screws along the edges of the phone using the Torx screwdriver. Take the metal plate off of the phone.
    • 6 Flip the phone over so that you can see the LCD screen. Slide the edge of a flat head screwdriver in between the seam of the plastic cover on the bottom of the phone. Wiggle the screwdriver up and down gently to unlock the catch underneath the plastic cover. Lift the entire plastic cover up and then off the phone.
    • 7 Find the latch on the side of the LCD screen and unlock it with the tweezers. Pull the screen slightly off of the phone and then disconnect the cable running from the screen to the phone. Lay the replacement screen back into the phone and attach the cable.
    • 8 Set the plastic cover back onto the phone and then flip it back over. Re-attach the metal plate and put the screws back in. Push the RF grommet back into place and then place the SIM card and battery back in the phone. Put the plastic cover on the back off the phone and then power it on to ensure the screen is working correctly.
Tips & Warnings
  • If your cell phone is a CDMA style phone, such as those provided by Verizon, it will not have a SIM card for you to remove.
  • Replacing the LCD screen on your mobile phone voids your warranty provided by the phone's manufacturer.

I dropped my LG Shine flip and half the screen is black


If you have done this kind of repair before, you could look on eBay for a replacement screen and price will vary. If you don't know how to perform a repair of this magnitude, you;re better off and will come out cheaper just buying another phone. If living without text doesn't bother you, no loss.

White screen


dear,
the strip that connects the keypad with the other circuitry is damaged. you need to repair it or replace it...it will be checked by an expert technician of mobile that either it is to be replaced or repaired...

flip and slide mobile have this kind of problem..moreover, it depends upon the usage of phone for flip/slide...
dont use it roughly, next time , it needs a lot of care..

goodluck..

Is it the LCD back light? If so, it probably burned out. Did the phone get wet recently? That is usally the main cause.

You can get a replacement screen on ebay for about 40-50 dollars. Look for ones that come with the instructions and screwdriver. You will need a T6 Torx Driver.

Sidekick3 got wet


those kind of problems are fixed by totally changing the parts... because nano technology is very hard to fix..
you could also try opening it and clean a bit the outside of the lens and see if that helps.. but i doubt it because it could be or will be a sulfated contact
