Question about Kyocera Oystr KX9 Cellular Phone

3 Answers

Kyocera oyster My phone screen display does not work. The phone comes on and I can make and receive calls, but I can not use the screen. It is black but there's a shadow on the sides showing some light. The phone worked fine one day and I plugged it in as usual at night but in the morning, the screen did not work. My warrantee ended last week (figures) and I just need to know if there's a fix before I buy a new phone. I just don't want to have to find all those phone numbers in my address book again.

I had the same problem a few months ago--then I accidentally dropped the phone on a hard wood floor, and when I picked it up, the display worked again.

Shine a bright light on it and see if you can see and resemblance of the display on the screen. If you can see a display, the backlighting on the screen is broken - if you can't see a display, it's likely the screen is broken or the display controller is broken. Backlight would be the cheapest fix, usually. Also, you should be able to transfer your phone numbers over to a new phone by using the same SIM card so long as the phone numbers were stored on the SIM card - the only way to find out is to put it in another phone and check out the address book.

    You might want to check eBay for a replacement screen for the unit, you can usually pick them up cheap if you fancy a go at repairing it yourself.

I call someone, and they answer, and can't hear me, but I can hear them. Then the call disconnects. I know it is my phone, because it happens with whomever I call. I have a Virgin Mobile Kyocera oyster

Given it to a repairer might be risky repairing your phone.

Your kind of phone needs a matured hand to handle it.

It's the mouth piece of the phone that makes people hear you that needs to be changed.

I suggest you take it to the company you bought it from fr safer reasons.take care..

Kyocera oyster screen blank

I hope that when you say blank it means partially lit, with a kind of background, but no image.
This solution is not for an abused phone, as it does not seem to be mechanical, or due to a loose connection. It rather seems like a firmware failure. It will not make your phone usable, instead, it will enable you to retrieve your saved numbers. Once these cheap things start failing they become disposable.
Tried removing battery: No cigar. Tried opening it carefully (under 90 degrees) still no solution.
Here's what worked for me. Phone off, either by powering it down of by having removed the battery.
Get a toothpick, and with the phone CLOSED in the off position, pinch the power-on button and let the phone come on closed. It may not work the very first time, but you should be patient. Once it comes on, you can do just about anything with it until you power it down.
**Make sure you have charged your battery prior to this, since will be spending some time retrieving your numbers**

Good Luck!

Can I change the screen image (wallpaper) on a Kyocera K126C? - if so, how?

Hi!

In answer your question: On the Kyocera K126C cell phone, the wallpaper image cannot be changed. This type of phone is not capable of receiving downloads of different wallpaper images or ringtones. You will just have to deal with the wallpaper picture the phone's display screen comes with as well as the ringtones that are built in to the phone.
