Question about Samsung SGH-t629 Cellular Phone

LCD Screen Fried

The screen on my phone is completely fried. Most of it is white but it has some unrecognizable black areas and some faint color lines on a portion of the white screen. None of the screen menus show up and it appears that everything else works (receiving calls, dialing out even though the numbers don't show up_. What should I do and if a repair procedure is presented, where would I get the parts? thanks

    I've had this phone for exactly a year. Last night the top third of the screen when white with a few horizontal lines of color. Below that is what appears to be a black tear. Below that it looks like there is a white filter over the display, so I can see that section somewhat. The phone was in my pocket and I was in a crowded place, there could have been a good amout of pressure applied to the phone to cause this, but I can't be sure. Aside from the display, the phone is still functional. Any suggestions how I can fix this?

    Something is up here. The screen on my t629 went out exactly 8 days after the warranty ended. T-mobile was absolutely no help.

  • asfdsa Dec 20, 2007

    Same thing happened to my wife's and my T629 phones about 1 month after
    the 1-year warranty expired. Is this Samsung's corporate strategy for
    planned obsolescence?

    i have the same exact problem. what do i do

  • Ang1620 Dec 31, 2007

    About a year after we bought the T629,, the same thing with the screen happened. Also, when making calls, you can't hear the caller, but they can hear you. It only works on speaker phones. Very frustrated because of course the warranty is over.

    Same Problem! My screen is all white, yet people can still call and her me, i just can't her them.

  • Anonymous Mar 06, 2008

    My phone did exactly the same thing.
    It started w/slight distortions in the bkgrd image along w/ white lines, then a reversed distorted image and over 1.5 wks went completely white.. and 4 months after the warranty period.
    I can still call on it, but it is absolutely unless though since I can't see who calls or if I have dialed correctly. I have also had terrible signal quality 3 months after signing a contract on this phone w/no help from T-Mobile to correct the problem(s).

    I had the same set of problems happening with my t629. I bought it in aug07 and everything was fine until jan08. After that within 2 weeks the micophone stopped working and the display went from reverse to blank. After reading all of your comments, i guess its a common problem with this model.

    my sidekick screen does not allow me to see my tex images or the full view of the screen. images are very faded. the phone work and i did not get it near water or submerge it in water. when i took it to tmobile they said it was water damage.

  • Anonymous Aug 12, 2008

    My phone did the same thing except completely white for a few minutes, then backwards. Every text I received was backwards, the date, of the camera-EVERYTHING. Incoming/outgoing calls work, but I have to use speaker phone or else I can't hear the person I'm talking to. My warrenty is up as well so...looks like there's no help coming.

Yes getting the phone apart to replace the flex cable is alot of work if you do not want to damage the phone. Putting it back together is a bit harder. I cracked my lcd screen and need to replace that i am just having trouble finding the lcd replacement.

Posted on May 03, 2008



Has anyone installed a new flex cable before. and if is, was it very difficult?

Posted on May 02, 2008



Flex cable could be torn. This was the problem when I took my phone apart.

We just recently had a power outage and I think it may have fried my television but I'm not sure what is actually fried. I can plug it in and hit the power button and the green light on the front blinks...

I have the exact TV. Mine works just fine but the screen is cracked. I can't find a replacement screen anywhere. I would be glad to either buy your screen to replace my broken one or I could sell you the circuit boards from inside mine for $50.00. And you can just replace your boards with some that work. You can reach me at [email protected] I live in the Houston Area. Email me with your number and I'll call you.

Does my iphone 3g have a dead battery or fried logic board?


This sounds more like a battery gone bad and a charger that's not working correctly. How much warranty do you have? I have AT&T service. My battery went bad and AT&T service said they weren't supposed to do anything about a battery but they sent me a battery and charger at no cost. Worth a try.

Black screen fell into water and not working

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Screen B&W only: Same as other poster

Screen works you get a black and white image. The colour stage works you get colour output to TV So my guess is the ribbon connector from motherboard to screen is loose or adrift. Is this something you fell you can fix or 'know a man that can?'

Same as other poster: Player only plays black and white

It sounds like the circuitry which actuates the color drives for the screen are not working, this would ba analogous to adjusting for a B&W picture on a color TV you have color but the screen shows black and white. I would get a schematic for this set and measure the voltages on the color processor that connects to the screen since you know that the external jack has color. If possible I can help you troubleshoot this, if you need me to help out.
