Question about Motorola Mobility E815
I've tried to fix my motorola's ( v710's and e815's similar phone styles) that had the same problem with the flex cable. I have found that it's the inferior engineering of the phone that causes this phenomenon to occur. This happened to me when the hinge that attaches the display screen becomes worn due to normal use. It can become loose and then it stresses the area where this cable travels from the body of the phone thru the hinge up to the display. I am now on my 5th motorola.. after this one loses it's warranty I am not going with Motorola and instead getting an LG... those seem to hold up thru a 2 yr contract no problem...During my 2 yr contract I have gone thru 3 v710's and I am going on my 2nd e815... Too bad for this phone, when it works it's a wonderful phone.

We took our cell phone to the mall to a store called Wireless Expressions II. They fixed the phone in about half an hour -- took it apart, replaced the flex cable, and tested it to make sure the phone worked ok. Total cost: $10.75 including tax. Can't beat that price on ebay, not to mention the time it would have taken me to do it myself. If you want to try them, their phone # is 850-671-1100.

You can find the flex cable online at ebay. However, my opinion is that you should try to find a E815 or V710 that has a bad ESN or is somehow being sold for parts yet has a good LCD. That way you get the flex cable AND you get the chance to take apart the bad phone and get some practice. Plus you end up with parts for later problems. Good luck, I've been repairing these phones for a couple of years, you'll need some patience getting them apart.

You may have a problem with your flex cable or dead pixels. Try and find a replacement flex cable. Most likely at any electronics store. If you have had your phone under 2 years (maybe 1) get a warranty replacement. Good luck.
