It is either that the connection between the board and the screen has been severed, and needs to be soldered back in place;
Or the screen is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Either way you might not be able to perforn either of the re-soldering or replacement yourself.
You would have to take it to a local phone repairer.
Hope that was helpful?

Blackberry screen is black since being dropped, its on loud so i can hear it ringing and receiving messages, also the keypad and led flashes and lights up, is it broken or is there anyway fixable?

Well, I personally think BlackBerry\'s are quite bad, but where all different so... You can\'t really fix the screen yourself because your screen\'s dead(broken.) So take it to be repaired at a shop.

Sorry I couln\'t help!

Everything lights up but the screen is black and stays black

hi Friend your Problem is that your cellphone is not working properly all the functions are working but screen stays it can be happend by 2 reasons.-1>i think you are using slider phone,so slider phones always uses a belt between screen and keypad some times, i think in your cellphone its not working properly you'll have to go any repairing shop and fix this problem with changing your belt..2>if you are not using slider phone then something wrong with your display ,means you'll have to change your display.

My Nokia N97 Often goes to a black screen and Flashes about 5 colours and restarts itself.

The first thing to try would be a software update through your PC first. This fixes most software glitches

My n97 will randomly go though the 'off button menu', look like its scrolling itself, and then switch off. then it comes back on by itself and does the same thing repeatidly. it has been doing it all day...

I have a N97 myeslf and had exactly the same problem. Mine had this problem due to being accidently dropped and through dust from work. If you are not experienced in taking mobile phones apart seek expert assitance.
Flip your phone to open mode and you will see 2 little black rubber caps on the back side.
Remove the caps with a sharp tool, and then unscrew the 2 screw with a positive (+) precision screw driver.
You will then need to carefully unclip the top screen from the phone itslef.
WARNING!! please be careful while doing this as there is a ribbon attached from the screen to the phone.
Once opened, unclip the screen ribbon from the phone itself and blow on both connectors.
Reattach the ribbon and place screen back and screw in the screws.
This should stop youre phone automatically scrolling and stop it from turning off.

Hope this helps and please rate, thanks

My sgh-u900 the screen is black but the keypad lights still turns on how do i fix it..

you could try taking it apart but most likely youll need a replacement screen. You should take it to your service provider ie verizon at&t sprint, etc. and they should either fix it or replace it usually for free or on a good deal :) Derek

My n97 would not come on. I am charging the phone

The program of your phone is damage it needs to reprogram.. To reproram your phone just remove the simcard and memory card.. Then press respectively the Call Sign, * Sign and number 3 of the keypad. And press the power button by holding those keys i mentioned. When you see the installation progress just wait until they finished before you unhold those keys. After that insert back the sim and the memory and try to on it back if it works.
