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.

Motorola Droid :: Screen Portion Clipon Broken

Oct 22, 2010

The screen portion clipon has snapped on me in the top right corner don't know how the hell it happened but it did. Guess my Droid has to go naked now as I feel weird having only the back portion on it. Not sure what I should do really. I bought it on Amazon it was delivered around September 24th to the 29th so it hasn't even been on my phone a whole damn month and it's busted.

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.

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?

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?

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...

Has fps ever been lifted before? Or are we spitting in one hand and wishing in another?

HTC EVO 4G :: SD Card Showing Only 30.2 Mb / How Can All Of It Be Broken

Oct 19, 2010

Ok, now THIS is weird. Overnight, apparently my SD Card died. Android could not mount it and when I put it in my card reader and looked at it, it was EMPTY and showed only 30.2 mb capacity.

I tried formatting it and even writing a file to it. The 30.2 mb worked like a charm.

So I don't get it. Either it's broken or it's not. How can all but 30.2 mb of it be broken?

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?

Android :: App For Broken Menu Button?

Jul 22, 2010

Recently the home and menu buttons of my HTC hero broke down. I found an app, "soft home" which creates a home button in the notification bar.Does anyone know of an app which does the same thing for the menu button? While Im on it, a second question: My browser which is the default browser of the hero goes full screen. This causes the notification bar to dissappear thus making the home button app useless. Does anyone know how to turn this fullscreen feature off/know a good browser which does not do so.

It almost seems like Google is switching the number it routes SMS through for the same contacts on a daily basis. This is even more odd because it recognizes the contact the SMS is from and labels them properly but separates the threads. I'm confused and cannot seem to find anything searching the web. I want to have all SMS threaded from the same contact like all other SMS threads work.

Seems simple, but even with video files that I've seen work in other video players on the phone, I keep getting the "Sorry, this video cannot be played" message. And this associated debug info: INFO/MediaPlayer-JNI(234): prepareAsync: surface=0x1a3ff0 (id=1) ERROR/MediaPlayer(234): Error (-4,0) DEBUG/VideoView(234): Error: -4,0

what those errors mean or how I can fix this? If this is not how I should be using VideoView please let me know. I'd appreciate being sent in the right direction for how to get a local video file playing within a view.
