Display problem on Motorola V170 cell phone

I purchased a new cell phone but before I had a chance to activate it my grandson found it and starting punching buttons. Later when I tried to activate my phone there was no display. It still makes the same sound when I turn it on but no display. I am unable to activate it without seeing the display. If I can't resolve the issue I will have to buy a new phone. Thanks.

The display should still be there, but the backlight is off. What you need to do is get the display under a bright desk lamp and find the setting to turn the back light back on.

Open the phone, hit the center button between the arrows, find "Settings" with the arrows, press the top left button (thats select, as the hard to see screen says).

Now navigate with the arrows through settings to "Other settings", (hit top left button again), "Initial setup" (button again), "backlight" (again), and choose 20 seconds. Right now it is on "off", which makes it so hard to see.

Hope that helps.

    What if the backlight does not come back on? Even after resetting phone?

Tracfone customer service


you must contact the customer service for the phone and tell them you want to activate the phone that you already have and they will have to send you a new sim card. You will not be able to activate the phone unless you get the sim card from them. Your service time would have expired but if you purchased double airtime minutes for life you will still have that honored. You will have to purchase more airtime in order to have more service days.

I have samsung star mobile i forgot mobile tracker code i don't have bill of the shop which i purchased now i want to sell it but i can't becoz of the tracker please help me


If you've forgotten your password, remove the sim or if your able to access your phone then type *#2767*2878# and your phone will restart. This resets the eprom of your phone. This resets all the active lock paswords and you can re-enter new passwords.

Note: This method doesn't reset the sim lock feature. Im still trying to find out a method to do that.

If you want to check the status of your locks, remove the sim or if you have access to your phone, punch in *#7645625# and you will get a list of all the available locks and their status.

If you have any more doubts or suggestions on phones of any model or manufacturer, mail me

Cellphone - black screen


There is a LCD strip (Bunch of closely punched wires, that makes up a connector). If you have replaced the LCD yourself them there may be chances that the strip is not properly punched. That strip comes out of display and goes straight onto the main circuit board.
This is a common issue that makes the Phone works perfectly but in a black-out mode.
I hope you have a clear picture now.

Sometimes a deal is not such a good deal, it is an internal security setting that cannot be changed. If the internet is important to have on your phone you just might consider purchasing a new phone or get a FREE phone from this company, they have excellent customer service and offer all of the major carriers! Have fun looking!

You may want to just purchase a new phone, I recommend this company they carry all of the major carriers and have excellent customer service, happy shopping! :)

Adding new extension to Nortel Norstar Meridian Phone System


you should have a panel designated for the system phones only and a panel for your wall jacks.

you only need to take two wires from the designated phone extension you want to activate to the wall jack you need activated. If you have a RJ 45 panel all you need to do is patch one end to the system phone port and the other end to the wall jack port make sure on the back side of the panel that the wires are punched down. The thin wires will need to be punched down with a special punch tool that you can purchase from Home depot or Lowes depending on what kind of panel it is. White/Blue,Blue/White,White/Org.Org/White.White Green/Grn/White.White/Brown.Brown/White.Solid White with violet color stripe.Solid Violet with white stripe is the color code in which to punch down for each cable. What city are you in may i ask?

Lg phone net10 can't access voicemail


Most voicmail systems can be connected to via land line. You do this by calling your cell phone waiting for it to go to voicemail then when you here the voice you press the * button. It should begin the routine to access your mail. I am not sure that this will result in anything different but it is worth a try.
