Android :: How To Access Phone With Broken Screen With Pc?

Aug 5, 2010

My HTC Incredible has a broken screen (physically intact but it doesn't turn on, and the phone is functional), so I'm getting a replacement soon. I managed to backup the files that I can see as "mass media storage" from the phone, the contacts are synced with Google account, but couldn't back up the SMS. Is there a way to access the android phone with PC? I'm trying screencast 0.4 but it looks like it requires "rooted" phone, which my phone is not.

Samsung Captivate :: Need To Access Phone Files Broken Screen

Nov 23, 2010

I tried everything and I'm beside myself. I dropped my phone off the second level of a local mall....it is (was) a Samsung Captivate. I was leaning over the rail to yell down to someone and the phone fell out of my pocket.

The screen is black....the buttons on the bottom light up and function. but I can't see a thing.

I need to get a video off the phone of my son, it was one of those moments that I was so glad I caught on video. I have to get it!! I"m sending the phone to DR.PHONEZ to get repaired but I scared that this video will be lost. So

I tried BitPim but the phone isn't supported. IT is recognized by my pc but I can't access the files I need.

two REMOVABLE drives show up in "MY COMPUTER" but when I click them it says "please insert disk"

Not sure what to do here, I checked all over the web.

HTC EVO 4G :: Broken Screen / Shattered Glass

Aug 15, 2010

I just wanted to offer a little information for those who may have cracked screens.I left my EVO on my bumper a few weeks ago. I realized about an hour later I didn't have it. Someone picked it up off of the busy highway and dropped if off at my shop. It had been rolled over numerous times and the screen was completetly shattered. With the help of this site, I found instructions on changing the LCD/Glass and ebay links on where to get it. I got a great deal on ebay, $79 for the lcd/glass complete. Was brand new in the packing. Bought the tools (listed in the instructions found on this site) at the local hardware store, put the lcd/glass on, and the phone works PERFECT! I am very glad. First off I didn't have insurance, and second, this has been the first phone in a while that I have had zero issues with and really like everything about it (coming from numerous blackberries).So basically, thanks for the help, and now we know the phone can take a few cars running over it and the board, battery, back, etc. held up great.It had a best buy case (appears same as seidio innocase) and Zagg screen protector on it.I have my original phone back, no scratches, spent $79 (less than the deductible even if I had insurance), and its a done deal.

General :: PC Won't Recognize Droid After Broken Screen

Feb 28, 2014

I broke the screen on my droid mini. I bought a replacement digitizer/screen combo off ebay that doesn't seem to be working even though installation is correct. I can power on the phone, but it's really weird. There's no display and it just vibrates once. About every minute it vibrates 1 time again.

Secondly, my PC won't recognize the phone now. I was going to try to transfer my photos to the PC so I could call insurance as a last resort. I have around 800 photos on there that I want to get off. NOTE, MY SCREEN DOESN'T WORK so I can't change modes on the phone.

I'm temporarily using an old phone, at least need getting the photos off the phone.

General :: App Data Backup From Phone With Broken Screen

Jun 4, 2014

I broke the screen/digitizer on my phone the other night. I got a new replacement phone through my mobile insurance. I was able to create a backup of my old phone through Kies since it's only the screen that won't work. However, upon further research, I'm seeing that Kies does not back up apps or app data. It says it does, when I selected everything while I was backing up but it won't let me when I try to restore it to the new device. It will only let me restore the contacts, pics, music etc.. which I already have on my micro SD card.

I've seen that people use helium backup but I am unable to do anything on my old device other than plugging it into a computer. I can't install helium on the old phone. Will I be able to backup the broken phone just with Helium Desktop?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: LCD Screen Broken - SE Support Not Reacting ?

Sep 11, 2010

As the title basically says it all, my LCD screen has broken. The phone was in my pocket while i was changing a flat tire, after that it was broken. The phone still works, however inside the LCD display has some strange black lines and a piece of the display remains black. I sent several emails through the SE website. The first reaction was that i had sent an email to the wrong support, and that they have forwarded my message to the appropriate support dept. From that request i haven't heard anything yet ( 1 week ago). Since i bought my phone online, the phone originated from Hong Kong. So i sent an email to Hong Kong support. They replied to update the software using the SEUS. I sent them a reply that updating the software didn't help, but i have not received another reply since. I also sent another support request to what i believe is the right support for my location (Aruba, Caribbean), but i didn't get a reply, not even a confirmation of my support request.

So now I don't know what to do with my phone, where I live there is no SE service center or any dealer or anything that can fix it. Any suggestions as to what I can do to get my phone fixed? Many thanks in advance.

HTC Droid Eris :: Screen Replacement Seems To Have Broken Proximity Sensor

Oct 6, 2010

I bought and installed a new screen (digitizer) in my Eris. The install went very well but now the proximity sensor doesn't seem to work properly. Most times when I place a call the screens goes blank and won't respond to any button inputs, Once the other party hangs up I get the screen back. But even this is erratic at times, not often, with the screen staying on all the time.

I installed Screebl Lite to force the screen on all the time and it works most of the time but seems to have a hard time figuring out the proximity sensor too.

Is there something I could have done to screw up the sensor when I took the phone apart? Everything else is working fine.

General :: Flash Device With Broken Screen And Debug Mode Not On

Jan 28, 2014

I have a completely broken screen/lcd/digitizer on my Samsung Galaxy S3, debug mode was not on. The phone works as it will still vibrate when turned on and the LED / Menu / Back buttons light up during a boot. USB connector works as well. The phone was not previously rooted.

I had most important data on the sd card and I've already wrote off any other data on the phone as I've since moved on to a GN2. I would like to make use of the S3 (not necessarily as a phone but a server, security camera, etc.). I've read several posts here about my options and looked at numerous google articles, all seem to require debug mode being on or assume/require the data/OS must remain as this is what the user is trying to recover. I do not care if all data is lost on the phone, I just want to make the device useful again.

Am I out of luck if debug mode was not enabled or can I flash through adb via some obscure mechanism? Also note that fastboot is not an option here as the S3 (samsung) does not have it enabled. I am unable to get into "Download Mode" as I cannot see info on the screen.

Jelly Bean :: Replaced Broken Screen And Now Colors Don't Display Correctly

Apr 3, 2014

I have a Star Note N9770 which had a smashed display - daughter knelt on it. The phone still appeared to work, though we couldn't see anything. I bought a "bricked" N9770 on eBay and used the display unit from that (it really was bricked - wouldn't turn on or charge) to replace the smashed unit.

We now have a display and everything appears to work and it charges. Except for the colours on the display - they are very pale/faint/washed out (hard to describe but the full range of colours doesn't appear in the display - just mostly greens and pinks and all a bit grainy). I've tried the brightness and contrast levels, factory reset, hard reset, etc, but it makes no difference.

I'm guessing that this display unit is slightly different from the original, even though all the connections were identical and tbh, it reminds me of a driver issue in a PC.

Android :: How To Access Programmatically What Is Displayed In Lock Screen

Feb 15, 2010

Today I am looking for a way to mimic the behavior I know from my HTC Hero's lock screen: the calendar and alarm clock can put text & drawables there to inform about an upcoming event or an expired alarm. The lock screen remains there in that it must be dragged down to dismiss the shown event and there might also be a Snooze button.

But, first question: is this default Android stuff or HTC Sense specific only??
Second question: If it is a common Android thing, why can't I find anything in Google's Android documentation for the topics "lockscreen" or "lock screen" that comes close to my question? Where's the API for it?

My problem is: I want to inform the user immediately - even if I try a standard notification, the user with a locked screen will have to unlock it and drag down the notifications list to see & clear what's going on. sigh Putting an endlessly playing notification sound there is a hassle as it takes at least two swipes down to stop the sound playing!

Android : Access To Native Screen Buffer From Java

Jul 29, 2010

Is it possible, from within my android java app, to capture an image of what is on the screen, even if it was written using native (ndk)? I do not wish to take screen shots of other apps, just my own. I can already capture and image of a canvas that I am aware of, but is there a view or canvas or something like it that always represents what is on the screen, so that a) I don't have to capture the separate views images and recompile them, and b) I can see what my native (jni) code is doing with the graphics too?

General :: Can't Access Recovery Menu (black Screen)

Jan 18, 2014

I recently bought a Chinese Mediatek 'pbablet' phone/tablet combination; running Android 4.2.2 Model: MTK6572. Due to it being cheap, it was ideal so I thought, for flashing and development, however I maybe wrong.

However I cannot get it into recovery mode. It won't display the menu when holding down volume + and the power button when powering on.

When pressing these two buttons together on start-up, it actually remains a black screen, and it won't turn on after doing this, and I have to keep pressing the tiny reset button on the side of this device every time I attempt to enter recovery, to get it to turn on as normal again.

Pressing and holding volume - and power at the same time on start-up brings up "Factory mode" (in Chinese) and has no options available for flashing/ROM/ functions, except 'testing' the devices' hardware. This phone doesn't have any other physical buttons except power, volume + and -

I am able to successfully enter CWR by flashing it with MTKDroidTools and rebooting into the recovery mode (while powered up and in the android OS) however I still cannot get into CWR or any recovery mode at all while powering up with power and volume +

I just want to be able to enter a recovery mode on this device, to ensure no future issues and doubts upon the unfortunate events of a permanent brick. My idea is to flash this phablet with ParanoidAndroid; or cyanogenmod, and I could try doing this with a software reset, but then what if the ROM is incompatible, and totally bricks it? Then I have no way in hell to revive and reflash, because I can't access the recovery mode anyway.

I have came to the conclusion that it maybe due to the filesystem, potentially due to it's fbifs, that is the cause to no recovery mode, but what if it's ext4, does any of this make a difference.

Is there any way to make this device open the recovery menu while powering it on?

When I attempt to enter recovery mode while powering up with volume +, the device is basically a brick, until I press reset. It doesn't respond at all. The only way to enter recovery menu is by booting into android resetting the device into recovery mode via an app.

Android : Update UI With Internet Access Every Time Screen Refreshed

Nov 1, 2010

I need to do an internet access to update a field on my UI. I do the internet access in a background thread by extending AsyncTask.

Since I need to update my UI every time the screen is refreshed I am executing the AsyncTask in my onResume method. code...

I dismiss the REFRESH_DIALOG dialog in the onPostExecute() method in the AsyncTask.

For testing I rotate the screen to landscape. Things work well. The problem is when I try to rotate again to portrait. I get 'java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: no dialog with id 1 was ever shown ...'. id 1 is for the REFRESH_DIALOG.

How do I get rid of this error? Is there a better way to do an Internet access to update my UI every time the screen is refreshed?

General :: Galaxy S2 Screen Broke / Access Or Wipe Data

Nov 7, 2012

My galaxy S2 fell and my digitizer is apparently non-working - I can see the screen sort of, but there is no touch response.

Anyway, I can't let just about anyone who I take it to have access to my data, since my contacts are stored on the google cloud, I have them all anyway, but I either need to:

1. Access the phone via PC and wipe the data by emulating the screen on my PC.

I tried using Kies air to do it - it recognizes the phone, but I can't open it through it because my phone is locked and it won't give me access otherwise. Of course I can't unlock it since the digitizer is dead.

I tried using software like droid-at-screen, installing the proper SDK components, BUT the phone never got recognized. It is my deduction that I have to enable USB debugging, which, again, I can't do since I don't have the touch interface.

2. The other solution would be to wipe all data manually, which I assumed was done holding the 2 volume buttons + power button, but all that ever got me to was the lock screen along with a "safe mode" in the corner.

Android :: Scrolling Broken In 2.2?

Sep 15, 2010

My app builds up a custom screen as dictated to me via the users 'application'. This means that I can end up in the situation where I have a parent scrollview and somewhere down the heirachy I can have a listView or a multiline TextView. Both of these scenarios continue to work fine under 2.1, however are broken in 2.2 (both device and emulator). The symptoms are that the child (list or textview) is unable to scroll using touch gestures although they can be scrolled using the keypad. Has anyone else experienced this behaviour and/or have a work around?? It appears that the onTouchEvent function in View has been changed substantially but I am currently delving into the code...

Android :: StartForeground() Broken On Incredible

May 24, 2010

It seems that on the Incredible the startForeground() call is non- functional, causing my process to be put into the background scheduler class even though it has an active ongoing notification. I'm calling it the same as on other 2.x devices (through reflection as suggested by Diane for backward-compatibility), and this works fine on the Droid, with the same OS level (2.1-update1). I can see in the debugger that it gets all the way to ActivityManagerNative.setServiceForeground() with the notification param being non-null, so it's got to be in the ActivityManager or below.

The really telling thing is that the stock music player acts the same way. When I'm playing a song and go to the home screen the com.htc.music process goes into the bg class, even though its notification is still active. This is a real problem for us, as it denies us the CPU we need to play back music in some cases without stuttering. Any ideas on whether this is getting fixed, and how I might work around it?
