I think that is already an LCD problem. You need to go to a service center to replace the LCD.

Galaxy s3 wont connect to laptop

connect usb to laptop, then other end to phone. You will get a notice at top of drop down screen saying it is connected as a camera, if you want to connect it differently touch for other usb options. You can pick media device or camera. Hope this helps. :-)

Something recently dropped on my blackberry, it had a cover on it and it was faced down. i then picked it up to find out that there were white vertical lines on the screen. it still works perfectly well...

I have had a similar problem with one of my phones and called the phone company right away. They suggested that I take out the battery for about 1 minute then put it back in and try starting the phone up again. It is also possible that some of the connectors on the LCD have cracked (making the white lines appear). Try the first suggestion otherwise if your phone is under warranty I'm sure they will fix it (don't tell them you dropped something on it just say it was in your pocket or something mundane like that). Also make sure not to open the phone because that my hinder the warranty. Good luck!

It's a good chance that the drop may have broken the connection from the board to the LCD, or cracked some of the connectors on the LCD itself as they are tiny pieces of glass and plastic...

I believe that replacing the screen would do it, although if the phone's under warranty, call the carrier up and tell them that you have lines going across the screen... they may just replace it for you.

I had a few dead pixels show up on my 8530... and they sent me a new one, as there were no refurbs at the time... this was about 1o days after I bought the phone. Sent back the old one, and everything has been perfect since...

Sorry can't help more, it's one of those things that unless you pull the device apart it's hard to tell... Also, you might kill your warranty if you open the phone... So it's a Catch 22 either way. Although, I would just let the pros that get paid to rip the phones apart handle it for you...

I dropped my phone on the ground and it landed on the screen...and the battery didnt even fall out, so i picked up my phone and looked to see if it was okay and the screen was white. It still vibrated if...

Hi this is a very common problem with all flip and slide phones and even laptops and notebooks, and anything that may have been dropped or knocked about a bit, the problem is to do with the data ribbon that connects the screen to the circuit board in the bottom of the phone.
now inside this ribbon are several single strand copper wires and over time open and closing the phone causes these to break and you then lose the connection with the screen.

as this is such a common fault it makes the part itself cheap to buy and cheap to get fitted. it isnt something you can do your self as you need specialist tools to take the phone apart and to fit the data ribbon.

if you want it repaired the cheapest place would be one of those small independent phone shops as the bigger one will have to send it off and you will be charged extra for this, the smaller phone shop should be able to fix it whilst you wait or the next day at the latest.

its up to you if you think the phone is worth getting fixed then it wont cost much to get done.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Sony Ericsson W580i screen went blank

Ok, my phone had the same problem. I took the face plate off and the screen out and there's actually a little connector that connects to a board behind the screen(can come unplugged for replacement). I fiddled around a little with it and it worked fine. about a week or 2 later it happened again. I tried fixing it again and it would just flash white>black>lines>white, repeat. I know my phone's taken a bit of abuse, dropped down a road, soaked in rain, but it always worked after. These phone screens aren't meant to take abuse. Problem; the phone screen died. Solution; get a new screen.

Won't turn on, may need SIM card help

The phone you have does not have any sim card. I am not sure if your phone provider will allow you just buy another CDMA phone and just transfer your number to it. I know alot of phone providers in US allow this though. About your phone there might be a loose component thats why when you play around with it, it worked then shuts down again. i suggest buy a new one CDMA phones are cheaper than GSM phones though.

do a sw reset....its possible it was damaged when it was dropped in the water, but not likey....

turn the phone off, press and hold the soft keys (buttons with the lines on them above the home key and back arrow key) and hold it the power button while you are doing that until the white t-mobile screen will come on, then instead of going to the green windows mobile screen, a black screen with white the green will get you in your phone but it will erase your info as a result....
