    My screen also went black (after TWO months!)...had phone in my pocket walking on treadmill & it went black, but started flashing the picture on the screen occasionally, now it doesn't have anything but black all the time. At first, the screen also would go black when it would heat up with charging (home or car chargers). The only thing that would bring it back then was to allow it to cool, but even that doesn't work now...the warranty is covering a new phone, but I don't want to lose my pix & vids stored on the phone itself.

Screen black got wet, keys light up, c

Remove the battery right now and use your hair dryer on it without heat. Dry it up completely and then only try to use it. There may still be traces of water inside the phone. If it does not help then take it to LG service centre. It is not dead yet.

My scrren went black. i can recieve calls ans

To help you with this problem, I want you to know that when a cellphone got fell, the main problem will be make is lost in display,you will not see anything but you can hear something like message tone and start-up tone, you can also receive calls. Don't be worry with that kind of problem. To tell you whats happening inside your phone is your LCD of display connection is only misaligned. Get it to the nearest cellphone repair center to get your cellphone to be open by a technician and probably they will do dismantling your phone and fix the problem. Hope this could help. Don't forget to say thanks..:-)

Phone got wet and is now showing "DEMSBL BOOT Loader for MSM6288"

What you are seeing is the mode used to flash your phone. Why it is showing up IDK. You can get to this screen while holding down the volume down button on your phone while turning your phone on. Quite possible something is replicating this volume down key. Maybe play with your volume button and try to turn your phone on or hold the volume up when you turn your phone on and see if you can get by this.

Try reseating the LCD screen connector. It is really easy to open the W580i and check the lcd.

if the phone didn't get wet or u can't see a visibly broken screen then ur lcd may still be working, u simply may need to re seat the ribbon cable that connects the lcd by un screwin the 4 screws that hold the display n pryin in open from the mid section of each side then use somthing flat to lift the connector n replacing it pressin firmly.
