Here's the thing, LG has made a big flaw in the design of this phone. These are the 2 most common problems 1. the display (which all of you already know). 2. The charging port.
Unfortunately there is no home remedy for these problems so you would have to take it back to where you bought it and hopefully get a replacement. If you can get another model (pay dif. in price) then do so. If you are infactuated with the design , then get the Chocolate II (vx-8550). But I recommend Samsung phones. I was a LG die hard fan until....
I'm on my fourth, (yes, FOURTH) phone. Verizon is actually very good about just replacing the phone for free, since this problem is obviously a manufacturer defect. All I have to do is send back the body. No more though. My only suggestion is to use an older phone until you can upgrade. VX8500, while a nice phone to look at, is completely flawed and unreliable.

sir is it blinks with white screen only or blinks with white screen then shut down? -if the phone can receive/send text and mms messages while the incoming and outgoing calls become shut down,i think you need to replace the battery because it is weak.use only original battery. -and if it is blink with white screen only try to reset all settings or reformat your phone,if not work hardware problem go to repair shop.
i had the same issue when my phone got slightly wet. try taking everything apart (sim card, battery, back). let them dry out for a little bit then after like a day or two put the phone back together. turn it on it will be a white screen for a little bit but give it like 2 or 3 mins and if should come back. I did this for my phone cuz i really needed the pictures off it and it worked! hopefully if will work for you too. GOOD LUCK!
My screen goes blank from time to time and when I turn it off and turn it back on again, it seems to re-boot itself and is fine. However, I have never had this problem with any other phone and fear my phone may be dying. It is only 1 year old and worked fine for the first 8 months I had it. But the blank screen seems to happen more frequently lately. I don't think I will buy and LG again.
If your phone is less then a year old bring it to a store that is owned by Verizon. You could also call 1-800-256-4646, then ask for the FRU (Factory Replacement Unit) department. They will get you a replacement phone.
