White screen how do i retrieve the contacts from
this is not possible because the screen is blind. When you connect the
phone to PC, you need to accept/press something on the phone to connect
to the PC. Now the screen is white, you can't see what button you are to
press on the phone.
I would suggest you replace the screen. Also, if your phone uses sim
card, you can remove it from your phone and insert it into another
phone. You might be lucky to find your contacts on the Sim.
Now to fix the problem, read further:
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.
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.
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
If you discover your phone has a virus problem, you will have to flash the phone for it to display again,
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.
Disassemble your phone and check the screen part in order to verify from the above which is actually the cause of the problem.
