    The Touch-Screen Of My Mobile Phone Turns Black When Exposed To Sunlight!

    Outdoors, during the day when exposed to diffused sunlight, the screen of my mobile phone turns black and is rendered unusable. I cannot even respond to an incoming call, unless I go indoors and find a dark corner! Is there a home remedy for this or do you think I should pay a visit to e-waste? Lol! ... My phone's nearly three years old!

    Hi Quicksand, if you are using a branded cellphone, just take it to their service center. They would be more qualified to tell you what to do with it. But if you are using an imitation of a branded cellphone, you can still take it to a cellphone repair shop (depending on the available services in your country). Hope this helps. smile

      Hi Beats! Mine's LG. The guarantee period is long over. The repair guys charge a fee for an estimate too. However none of them was able to figure out what's wrong. So I guess I should go in for a new phone! Thanks, and nice talking to you again! smile

    I have a brand new BLU droid and it turns dark as well.  I heard about the blu unlocked phone and decided to use it with straighttalk. I had to buy an installation program with sim cards for altogether about a hundred thirty bucks.  It was very hard to get it set up and still can't use some features but otherwise it lets me into most data ok.  phone and text work fine.  the down side is what you  mentioned and that it works off of ATT towers rather than Verizon , that was a big change and I don't have as widespread signal coverage.

      Hi Oscar, this is probably not a common problem associated with mobile phones. Anyways, thanks for responding!
