Question about LG VX5200 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Permanent blue screen display

Both my front and main screen displays show a permanent blue screen. I did not get my phone wet or leave it in the heat and my battery was never really low or left uncharged.  It started the first time but after i shut off and turned on my phone a few times it showed back up.  I went to bed and left my phone on the counter and when i woke up it went blue again and has been like that for two days.

    That happened with my phone too it's the same kind of phone I'm currently on my 4th one so after this phone breaks with no help from me i will get a different type of phone. i got this phone in 2006 so im happy the 2 years is almost up.

    Just got back from talking to the dealer. My phone is 15 months old, and of course the warranty expired 3 months ago. My son has the same phone and his went blue right before the warranty expired, so his was replaced free of charge. I was told I need a new LCD screen. So, now I have to decide if I want to do this or go with a different phone. Obviously there is a manufacturing problem for so many of them to have this type problem. I found a replacement LCD screen on eBay, but don't know yet if I want to go that route!

    Yeah, my mom is on her fourth one like that, and it's really annoying! That model phone is A PIECE OF CRAP! Every time she's got a new one, it was because of the screen turning blue. The first time, it was blue for about a month. It sucked. The second, about a week. The third, 2 days? Now, it's on it's second or third day, and it's been doing it on and off for 2 moths, and that's how long she's had it, but now it's permanent. She is on my cousin's line, and he's an idiot and doesn't understand. We're gonna see if she can upgrade in January without paying 50 something dollars, but no luck as of right now. My cousin thinks it's mine and my older sister's fault, because we TEXT ON IT! Like I said, he's an idiot. I HATE THIS PHONE, AND I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL SHE GETS A NEW ONE!

    Also, on my PN-215 (prepaid) it erased 22 pictures on it's own, and set the background back to the original one! If you know anything about that, e-mail me at [email protected]

    The other day I was just talking on my phone to my dad and the next thing I know my main LCD screen is blue. I tried taking out the battery and putting it back in, but no luck. I have never gotten my phone wet or left in the heat or anything. It has been this way for about a week now.

    My front screen turned blue first, then it spread to my main screen.  I have to shut it off, and turn it on sometime repeatedly to get it back.  At other times the screen becomes jumbled.  This is my 2nd LG phone, and I have been mightily disappointed both times.  

    Buy Nokia phones they are built much better, and are more reliable for sure.

    Sorry, wish I had a solution.

I had the frozen blue screen twice. As a cowboy reset, I removed the battery for a minute, then put it back in. Worked for me, didn't erase my contacts or anything.

I dropped my phone in the bath but managed to retrieve it in almost a second. I then took my battery and simcard out to dry them with a towel. After a little while i put my battery and simcard back in to...

It's no longer necessary to dry or to leave exposed for 24 hours, to leave it at least 24 hours means right after it's soaked/wet without putting on the battery or without switching it on.

Now to test/check whether your phone is still functional, insert the sim card and battery, power on the phone, and try to reach the main menu/try to boot it normally (you have this blindly since your display is not showing). If you think it properly booting, then dial your number from another phone, if you feel or if it rings the incoming call, then the problem is only with the display, could be the Lcd itself or could be connector or could be display ic. The only least expensive thing you can try is, replacing the display.

If you think it's not properly booting and you feel it's not working, you can still go for a repair if you can find any repairing or servicing center near your locality.

(I can't make all these specific since you didn't mention the Model number)
Good luck

Its one of the most common problem in Samsung SGH-A707.It is mainly due to one reason i,e. your cell got wet.....!!!
But you can try following steps to get rid of it:
  1. Takeout the battery of your phone.
  2. Leave your cell in air for a day or two without attaching battery and battery cover to it.
  3. Put the battery back,it should work.If still problem exists, then I'll recommend you to buy a new battery for your cell........and before you put that new battery in your cell,leave your cell in air for another two days with the same procedure.

Blue screen on main display

You most likely need a new ribbon cable, which is the cable that connects the two halves of the phone. They are not expensive and can be ordered on eBay, and they come with the tools required to disassemble the phone and replace the cable.

Blue screen on main display

Hi. this reoccurring error is due to programing and hardware failure. you will need to remove the battery for 5 minute. if the error continues after you re insert the battery, this will confirm this fault in the hardware. your phone will require repair in this case.

Razr V3 water damage

Sounds dire. If you look inside the back of the phone, there should be a small spot that turns from white to pink when the phone gets wet. If that spot is bright pink, most repairers won't even bother trying to fix it. Best off buying another phone!
