172 will not work after dropping

I dropped my 172 on the tile floor of my house.  It will turn on and the screen illuminates but nothing else will happen.  Any suggestions for repair or someone that can repair it?

Hi,
Have you solved the problem?
If not you shall check that the flexible cable to the screen is securely connected to the circuit board. Check also the other cables.

I have an acer laptop model no. kav60.. it was dropped on the tiles floor. when I turned it on the the light is dim. I need to use a flashlight for me to be able see the screen?


hmmm...that usually means that there is a connection issue inside the lcd screen/video card, which is under the keyboard at top end

is it under warranty

this can be a really weird repair.

Dropped my LG CF360 cell phone on the tile floor. phone operates fine but screen is now blank. it appeared to be fine immediately after dropping it but now the screen is blank? any ideas?


yes. this is a common fault with any phone that falls on the tile floor, especially if it lands using the screen(even if it doesnt, the screen might still be affected). the only solution is to send it to a repairer because it would require the attention of an expert due to the crack or damage done to the main display screen which in most cases would have to be replaced with a brand new one

We dropped our Bose Wave radio cd player on the tile floor. One speaker seems to not be working. How do we fix it? Cd player is working. Radio is working.


You probably can't repair it yourself, It definitely sounds like a qualified tech's job to me. It could be many, many reasons for the failure. As simple as a fuse popped out of it's holder to part of the motherboard cracked. The shock could loosen any solder joints. If the speakers are built in it could be a damaged speaker or anything working backwards from there. Electronics and tile floor spells expensive to me. But I could be wrong, it happened once before (only a joke)

Dropped camera!


Electronics goods are only for safe use. Not for droping, if it happens then go to purchase new one.
If it was in India, there was an option for repairing. Otherwise through it away.

Nintendo DS lite - dropped


Might be worth taking it into a phone repair shop to see if they can replace the LCD screen. (yes, a phone repair shop - a lot of them do portable console screens too!) If they can't do it, it's probably unfixable realistically.
