HTC Desire : Way To Setup LCD With Black Spot In Middle Of Screen

Sep 16, 2010

After destroying my camera flash with with some app i managed to destroy also my LCD screen. I forgot to take my phone out my back pocket and sat down. Now the phone has a black spot in the middle for the LCD screen.

Do you think I should send it HTC service for warranty and let them replace the screen (guess it will be expensive) or should I replace it by myself?

I just replaced my Motorola Droid. Before when in the middle of a call or to hang up a call i just pull the phone away from my head and the screen would come on... or, i would have to use the power up button on the top of the device then swipe to unlock. Now in the middle of a call the power button is not working nor does the screen illuminate when i pull away from my head.

General :: Screen Dead On GS4 / MHL Screen Mirroring?

Oct 14, 2013

I need to get data off my phone and I am trying to figure out ways to do it short of replacing the screen on it.

It is stock and has a PIN lock screen. When I try hooking it up through Kies it says I need to unlock my phone and apparently whatever steps I need to do I cannot.

I was wondering if I buy an MHL hdmi adapter if it would start mirroring as soon as I plugged it in or if I would need to enable mirroring somewhere in a menu stuck behind the lock screen which I cannot get to?

if the MHL adapter starts working immediately when plugged in (mirrors lock screen) or how to get my data off?

HTC EVO 4G :: White Screen Dead Touch Spot

Jul 24, 2010

I'm on EVO #2 now. #1 failed after what I believe to be an overheating issue when using outside for a couple hours. So today I'm at the Red Bull Flugtag taking pics and video. Its warm(HOT)...after a couple hours I notice that I now have a dead touch spot on my screen. If you were to divide the screen into 4 quadrants...the lower left quadrant is now 100% completely unresponsive to touch. Rebooted, took the battery out, did a hard reset like Sprint advised all to no avail. I'm now on the waiting list again at BB.

ADB To Find And Recover Files From D4 With Dead Screen?

Mar 19, 2014

I think the connection between the body and screen broke. Nothing shows on the screen, and there's no touch input available. But the device is still able to power on, reboot, and is recognizable from my Windows PC. I'd made a fairly recent nandroid backup, so I'm not in an emergency phase, but there are some files and photos I'd still like to try to recover from the broken device. Basically just files on the internal SD card. I was rooted, running stock Android on the latest OTA.

I'm not very experienced with ADB, but have started to give that a shot. I've tried various ls commands, but am stuck at a point where I get an error. Using a console (Console2), I ran ADB, then used this command:

Code:
adb shell ls -R /storage/sdcard0/
I got this error:

Code:/storage/sdcard0/: opendir failed, Permission denied

I'm not sure if this error is because I didn't open shell with root access. But when doing that, I run into other trouble because I'm not familiar with the linux-style commands. Another small issue I've bumped into is that when running the ls command on large file trees, the results are cut off by the console's 9999 line buffer.pull all the data from the entire internal SD card?

General :: How To Take Over Control Of Dead Screen From Outside Android

Jan 31, 2013

Is there any way to control from outside an Android which screen has become nuts ?

I have a chinesse phone ( and MTK 6573) which touch screen has become nuts (most of it has become unresponsive and often a continuos touch imput is detected in the center-left side of the screen). So, it has become useless...

The thing is, I would like to access to it, in any way, to recover some of the data I have on it. Also, becouse I try to disasemble, volumen key seem not working. How could I connect to it ?

I tought of the mimobiler, but I need to enable it trought touch and hadn't been able I tought backing up and restoring in another mobile (an MTK6577), but volumen key not working for ColckWorkRecovery would be to control it from mouse or similar, in a way that does not affect the missfuncionality of the touch screen (should be disable I presume). But anything that allows me to recover the saved phones (several got stored in mobile instead of google account), and a couple of apps data (a fianace data and a notes app) would be great something like remote-titanium-backup ?

Motorola Droid X :: Dead Pixel Or Dust Under Screen?

Jul 22, 2010

note: this is an artist rendition because my digital camera is terrible and i couldn't figure out how to get the dust in the shot. but it looks just like this. it's a black speck under the screen that can only be seen on bright surfaces and only if you are looking at the screen head on. i'm not sure if it might be a dead pixel. i can certainly live with this problem although i'd prefer if it wasn't there.

1. is this a dead pixel or dust?
2. how do i fix this, can i just exchange it at the vzw store whenever they stop being sold out?

HTC EVO 4G :: Screen - Scratch On Front Display Dead Center

Jul 9, 2010

So 31 days into using my HTC Evo (1 day past when I could actually do something about it), I now notice a scratch on the front display dead center. No idea how it got there, though I did let someone use it for the first time while I wasnt monitoring their every move with it, lol. To make the matter worse I ordered a screen protector 2 days before this happened (waiting on mail).

Just wanted to let people know it will scratch when you least expect it, so buy a screen protector.

My question is, considering I have never had a scratch on my cellphones before. Will a screen protector (ie: Boxwave ClearTouch Anti-Glare) make the scratch look less noticeable?

The 7$/m insurance (if you choose to get it) only means you pay 100$ to replace it compared to full retail. Toothpaste trick Ive read in random places online did nothing (bad or good). Not willing to risk making the issue any worse trying other methods, unless someone here has a good one.

General :: How To Get Text Messages From Phone With Dead Screen

Jul 1, 2013

People are still sending me texts even though I can't read them. I can still hear notification sounds. I've gotta get a replacement quick, but I also need to get the important texts I missed. Is there any way I can get them through my mac?

To be clear, the screen is completely blank but I can still unlock it via touch pattern. It takes a few tries but Android File Transfer on the mac will tell me if it can or can't connect. If it can't, I just try again and I can get it. So the touch part still works, it just doesn't show any information.

The phone is a Galaxy Nexus. When I connect it to my Mac, I can see the files in it via the Android File Transfer window. However, I can't find the texts here.

I have the Android SDK installed and I was told I can do this: adb pull /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/mmssms.db..However the device shows up as offline when I do adb devices. I can't figure out a way get it showing up as online without being able to use the screen.

HTC EVO 4G :: Screen Rotation - Minor Light Leakage And Dead Pixel

Jul 8, 2010

I've had a HTC Evo now for 2/3 weeks, and I love it! But over the last few days it's started to act funny....

What it's doing is lets say I unlock the phone and have it laying on my desk, in the past it would show the screen in portrait orientation....but over the lat 2/3 days its been jumping to landscape and I have to pick up the phone, tilt it to get it back to portrait, and if I lay it back down it will go back to landscape.

This is mainly annoying when checking emails/texts/etc, but also if I am on the train and holding it near my waste, depending on the angle it will bounce back and forth from portrait to landscape!

I originally did a reformat when I bought it, and I am going to do it again shortly to see if that helps....just wondering if anyone else had this problem and if it's fixable (and yes i do want auto rotation)....

My phone has a few other problems such as minor light leakage, and a dead pixel (which I was going to look past and keep the phone)...so if this is something wrong with the hardware it would be a pretty good reason to get a replacement within my 30 days....

HTC Incredible : Dead/ Bright Pixels - Loads A Fully White Screen

Apr 29, 2010

Went into the mall where I work this morning, there's a verizon kiosk right outside my store. Pick up an Incredible. Start driving home while playing with it. At a red light I notice a bright green pixel over an orange area of my wallpaper. Indeed it was there throughout any application I used. When I loaded up the browser and went to "about:blank" (which loads a fully white screen) I was able to see it there also.

Bummer. I live 14 miles from where I work, and where I picked up this Incredible. So I head over to another Verizon store closer to where I live. I show the agent, and he agrees and we swap it. Next phone... dust under the screen, 3 particles, right out of the box!

Once more another replacement. This time a red bright pixel around the same area (lower left quadrant of the screen) as the first phone! 4th phone into it, finally no issues.

Has anyone else gotten dead/ bright pixels in their AMOLED displays? Open your browser and enter this address in. about:blank, just like that. look hard, tell me what ya find. Took me four phones to get a good one. Hope everyone else here doesn't have to go through the same.

Motorola Droid :: How To Restore Nandroid Backup Stock With Dead Phone Screen?

Jun 13, 2010

So my Droid's screen recently stopped working and I'm getting an exchange with Verizon. I have to send my dead phone back once I get the new one, and am concerned about the fact that it's rooted running Froyo. I'd like to restore the nandroid backup I made of stock 2.1. Can somebody give me advice on how to do this with a dead screen? Perhaps from the command line on my computer via USB, or perhaps the key strokes to do it in nandroid so I can replicate it by feel?

HTC Desire :: Have To Confirm Time Zone Every Morning

Sep 20, 2010

Android: 2.2
Network: 3UK
Task killer: None
Issue:

For some reason on most mornings since I got my Desire some 12 days ago I get a notification stating that the phone has been unable to confirm my time zone. I get an option to confirm my time zone as BST (GMT +1) and the phone is happy again...until the next morning.

My settings have the phone automatically checking the date and time. The greyed-out "choose time zone" option correctly shows GMT +1 / BST. I switch my phone to airplane mode overnight, so that I don't download updates unnecessarily...and don't get my sleep disturbed. Could this be the problem?

The strange thing is that this has not happened every morning, although most mornings it has. But my brother who lives in the same house also has a Desire and he has rarely had this problem. Any ideas?

HTC Incredible :: Time Zone Changes And Outlook Calendar Events

I have multiple events (ie birthdays) as all day events. That means that these are set up in Outlook 2007 from 12am to 12pm on selected day. Recently, I went from Central to Eastern time zone. While there, I synced my phone with outlook using HTC Sync and now I have an additional occurrence of the event that goes from 11am to 11pm and spans into the previous day. I thought this would fix itself once the phone was back in the right time zone and was resynced, but it doesn't.

General :: Direct Access To Time Zone Function?

Oct 16, 2013

I've used XDA many times before, normally for specific questions on ARHD ROMs.

I work on a cruise ship and we're continually crossing time zones. Currently, to alter the time zone on my (rooted) HTC OneX, I need to pull down the notifications tray, select settings, scroll down and select date and time, then select time zone. I can't use the Auto function, as the network time on the ship (satellite) is only available over Wi-Fi, for which I have to pay an exorbitant rate.

I'm looking for an app that will allow me one-tap access to changing the time zone. 'Time Zone Widget Light' almost does the job, as a tap on the widget scrolls through pre-set time zones, but this only allows me to step forward, and sometimes I need to go backwards as well (sadly our ship itineraries refuse to follow pre-set time zones, although I'm working on it!)

Any app, or perhaps a toolkit that lets me drill down to sub-layers of the android settings menu and create a short-cut?

Samsung Vibrant :: Losing Data Connection Permanently After Being In No-service Zone.

Aug 4, 2010

Most of the time the data connection works fine. But if I go into an area with no cell phone reception for a little while, once I come out into a full-bars area where data normally works, my data connection never resumes. Once that happens, I can make calls just fine, but can't use the internet/market/etc. The only thing that solves this problem is to go to network settings, enable 2G networks only, then turn that setting off. That is a huge pain, obviously. Has anyone else had this problem? This was happening with my old SIM, so I had T-mobile give me a brand new one, but it is still happening.

I feel so much better about my keyboard. I have been using the stock one, but it gives me fits with my man hands and correcting my texts has been a pain in the ass.I finally sat down and researched a lot of keyboards and tried out a bunch on my Stock 2.2 Evo.Anyway, the keyboards on the marketplace are crap. They promise tons of options, but work as well as the stock keyboard. Then I heard about the Droid X keyboard, and spent about 2 hours installing and playing with different versions before discovering that they didn't run on 2.2I finally found one here that worked perfectly. It is amazing.
