Motorola W315 Screen Problem

My daughter has a Motorola W315, and suddenly the screen goes all white- the main screen and the small one when it is closed. It still makes calls and receives them, but there is nothing but white on the display. Any ideas?

    Yeah, my phone started acting up the same way-- it still recieves calls fine, my alarm still goes off way too early in the morning.....but the inside screen is just white, and the outer screen has the black and white pixels inverted. I've tried the basics (restarting, removing and replacing the battery, charging) but nothing seems to be working.

    I have the same trouble. The main display screen is always blank but illuminated, and the smaller front display works fine but the colors are inverted. I suspect it is a software problem and not a hardware malfunction. Does anyone know how to reset this model without a working display screen? Does anyone know how to extract the phone book/contact list without a working display? Any help would be appreciated.

    Exact same problem. Inside display is illuminated but blank, outside display with time / date colors inverted. Tried master reset (walked through with another phone to get to appropriate menu area) - did not fix the problem.

I have the exact same problem... you could find someone with the same phone and find out how to get to the master reset without looking at the screen..that might work, but you would have no numbers.

Small display screen problem

It would probably need to be replaced. It might be more cost effective to replace with a new phone if you cannot get it replaced by your service provider.

Hi. It sounds like you either need to replace the main ribbon connector in the phone or the LCD screen. There's a guide here to replacing the screen and you can buy parts from the site too

My phone won't turn on/charge?

My husband's w315 is doing the same. This phone is a replacement sent to us because the original w315 I purchased for him had a problem with the screen. (It went blue and never displayed another thing!) When we rec'd this replacement, it worked fine until we had to charge it. They don't send a new battery with the replacements, you have to use the one out of your original phone. Soooooooo, back to the battery/charging problem. We have been to our local Cellular South store, and been given 3 new batteries & 1 new charger. Guess what.......the problem is still there!!!! We have now been instructed to file a warranty claim on this replacement w315 that we rec'd to replace our original w315!!!!!! I've gone to Motorola's web-site for help, but help I did not find. I am! Personally speaking, I'm not a fan of the w315.
