You're right. usually the problem with flex phones is like that. you cannot fix that yourself. you need to go to a service center to help you with that. and i'd suggest that if in the near future, you'd like to purchase a new phone? just dont go for flex phone.. unless you are really really careful. but if you are a person who's always on the go, choose another celphone brand/ type that is heavy duty/ shock proof will do.

Black screen


Hi,
When a phone screen is blank or has a white screen, etc, there are three things that could be the cause;

1. Bad/defective screen and the solution is screen replacement. (In your case, your screen might be failing). 2. Software/Virus problem and solution is to flash the phone 3. Flex problem and solution is to change the flex. In some cases the flex might have shifted or not in it's right position, in this case, just fix the flex back properly and all will be well.

Bad/defective screen:

If your phone is having a white screen, first thing to do is dismantle the phone carefully, check if the screen is properly fixed to the phone board, also check if screen flex is intact. Once you've confirmed that all these are okay and screen is not still coming up, then it means your screen is bad. You can go ahead and replace the screen.

Make sure you confirm the screen is bad before you do any replacement.

Software/Virus:

Sometimes software/virus problem on phones are mistaken to screen problem. When a screen is white or blank, sometimes it's a virus problem. To further confirm, turn on the phone, wait for about 2 minutes when you know the phone must have booted fully, then use another phone to call the phone with white or blank screen. If the phone rings, it means it's not a virus problem, but if it doesn't ring, it means it's a software/virus problem.

If you discover your phone has a virus problem, you will have to flash the phone for it to display again,

Flex problem

When your phone screen is blank, white, has horizontal/vertical lines, turn images up-side-down, etc, be calm, 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 acting like any of the mentioned problem.

This is usually common with flip and slide phones. The flex worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone. Samsung and Motorola phones mostly have this kind of problems.

Replacing the flex is the only solution to this problem. 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 replaced.
Conclusion
Disassemble your phone and check the screen part in order to verify from the above which is actually the cause of the problem.
Please let me know if you need anymore assistance.
Good luck.

Flex problem

Hi,black screen on phones are usually caused by the flex of the phone.

The flex of the phone is located inside the phone, it controls the functions of the screen an also the keypads of the phone.

The flex is a thread like object that is located inside the phone. To see the flex, you will need to disassemble the phone to get to the flex of the phone.

After replacing the phone flex, your done.

Also it might be the screen of the phone. But in other to know if it's the screen, you will need to test a new flex.

You can get a replacement flex from any of the phone repair stores around you.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for using fixya...

your screen turns black because of the flex ribbon in your phone that maybe defective or not already in its proper position. if you have the tools in opening your phone, you can do it.just don't apply to much force in removing something.

The screen on my S7350 samsung phone has gone black. the diplay lights on the numbers work but the screen won't. I need to move information from this phone to my new phone, but to do this I have to turn...


Hi

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 not displaying any picture.

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 display picture 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.

LTV-27w7 blackscreen


Have you tried unplugging overnight? Sometimes mine gets screen garbage and that clears it up. Of course, now it says "Auto Scan Required" every time I power up. Maybe I should've grabbed that after Xmas 32" at Fry's for $400.
