Cell phone screen went purple how do i fix it?

Ok so today i dropped my phone about 4 feet and it hit the ground ( accident i bent to pick up something on the coffee table and it slipped out of my hand, i didn't think it hit too hard and it only hit the carpet but i picked it up and the mini LCD lights up it just doesn't display anything, the main LCD is purple-ish with a little white around the top, it won't ring when i get a call, but it will vibrate, i can answer calls and talk to people but i can't hear them, if i put in a headset i can hear them and talk to them, i can recieve texts i just can't see them and it will vibrate when i get one and the red light on the back indicating a text lights up but nothing else.....oh and the model is an audiovox CDM-8910. It'd be just terrific if someone could enlighten me on this, oh and the chrager port is kinda messed up too....which i guess is a comon problem with these phones from what i'd read.

    My display is exactly the same as it was when new, except that it is now much 'darker' and almost impossible to see - especially in daylight. The colors didn't change (no purple) it just got darker -- as when you make a room darker with a dimmer switch.

    My phone has been dropped more than once, and on to hard ground or pavement - not a carpet.

    Once, right after it had been charged, it went back to it's original brightness -- but that only lasted for a short time, and hasn't happened again, even though it has been charged quite a few times since then.

    I've tried every setting I could access, trying to correct the problem - without any success. (Display... Contrast, Backlight ---- These don't help, though I thought Backlight might lessen the draw on the battery.)

    I'm thinking that dropping it (at least inre MY phone) may be only coincidental -- and that the more likely problem would be a worn-out battery. It's the original battery - and I think it's been longer than 3 years.

    I just ordered a new battery today -- on the basis that I probably need one, and it's cheaper than paying to have the phone serviced. (I read someone's post saying they were quoted $40 for service.) The battery was on sale at for $8.99 + $4.99 for shipping. So my natural sales resistance was overcome.

    I realize this doesn't help with the purple screen, but at least it's about the Audiovox 8910 -- which, by the way, I have found to be quite satisfactory up until the display problem.  

    I chose it over others mainly because of it's speakerphone capability.  Of course, 3+ years, later there are phones with much better features, and I should probably get a new one -- but then there's that "natural sales resistance" issue.   :-)

    Good luck to all,

The first thing that made your fon faulty is the flexible cable that connects the boards of your phone. Go to the service engineer near you to replace your phones flex cable.

Just get a new phone......... the screen can't be fixed so you will have to talk to your company to see if they can replace it, if not, you may consider just buying a new one that isn't so easily breakable

It sounds like the phone itself is broke. Try taking it to a repair store of your service provider to see IF they can fix it. You might have to buy a new phone.

Cracked Iphone 4 screen with distorted messed up colors.

Hi Connor,
Since the iphone is dropped from 4 feet, there would have been a physical damage to the display. If the phone is still under warranty or Apple care protection, you could take the iphone to Verizon store and replace the internal display. If the iphone is out of warranty, they might charge you for replacing the display for the phone. :-)

My motorola rival all the sudden- the screen went black. i dunno what happened to it. when i turn it on, it makes sounds but i cant see the screen. do you know what i should do to fix it?

My phone has been doing that for about a week.. I went to the store & they told me that I would have to buy a new one for $40.. I am NOT gonna do that.. But I fixed it today(: What you have to do is put your phone on the charger.. Turn your phone off.. Then drop it on the ground.. Turn it back on & it should work.

I dropped my phone today and now it wont work

When you dropped it you loosened up the digitizer connector which is number 2 under the screen. Open your iPhone and resit that wire firmly back in. That should fix the digitizer not working.

If its a 3G just unscrew the 2 screws at the bottom and use a suction cup to remove the screen. Easy. But if its a 2G then Good Luck.

Funny colors on Lg Renoir screen.

No major accidents, so small accidents maybe. The phone is under warranty for 12 months, no matter what the phone company you are with says, your statutory rights are not affected, so tell them you want it either repaired or replaced. Your choice.

Was hit in the rear of my Jeep. Messed up back bumper & tire.

WOW! are you ok? May be sore tomorrow morning. 9 years old is against fixing it, as the value has dropped since new of course, but wranglers hold their value well. You are going to have to bring it to a body shop with a frame machine to check to see how tweaked the frame is. The tire being pushed forward can be fixed, although that's going to cost too. Hope you're ok, and yes, I think you can get it fixed , although it's going to be close. Was the moron that hit you on a cell phone? I almost got t-boned today by a guy on his cell blowing off a red light. Cop 100' down the street didn't see it! His lucky day! Let me know how you make out. Good luck Curt
