    I asked a friend to take pictures. I don't know if she changed the settings somehow or what, but when she gave it back to me, there were no pictures - and the screen always shows blank. Earlier pictures can still be accessed, but it won't take any more pictures. I have cleaned off and re-formatted the memory card, reset to default settings, inserted a new (used, but usable) memory card - nothing, just blank screen. HELP!

Blank screen

i think u still have ur warranty period active.. if u do jus take ur cell to thje service station and tell them tat the screen went blank all of a sudden... dnt tell them abt ur steam things and all... since u have ur warranty period ur screen wld b changer free of cost... suppose if u've bot ur cell recently then fight 4a replacement in the service station... jus tell them its the manufacturers fault and u didnt do anythin... u have chances to get it replaced... or change ur screen... but nvr tell them tat u took it into a steam room... remember 4 all samsung mobiles, if u service ur mobiles 3 or more tmys in a single service station then ur cell has to b repalced within ur warranty period.. its their rule... use it.... b criminal at tyms.. lol... cheers

How can i fix cell phone screen that wont light up. My wife dropped it in a mud puddle yesterday. She picked it up quick and took off the back but it wasnt went inside but I think the screen might of got...

you can try storing it in a bag of rice for a day or two. take the battery out and leave the back cover off. put it in a bag with rice seal. the rice pulls the moisture out of the phone. That is your first step. After that, if it doesn't work then you will need to replace the screen or get a new phone

Blank screen on razr 3 cell phone

I bought this cell phone off ebay thru a hong kong dealer what a mistake. This is the second phone they shipped me but not without extra expense for me and now this phone screen went blank in 1 day after receiving it. I just plan on sending it back and filing a complaint on ebay.

Just beware!!!!!!!

Seems like these cell phones need to be RECALLED.
Thanks

LCD monitor is blank

Canon would have to fix this for you. The fault may be the screen itself, or the LCD viewfinder drive IC on the camera's circuit board. In this case they will replace the circuit board.
