ZTE Z233VL flip phone's screen won't light up or work

I dropped the flip phone while cleaning, and now it takes minimum five minutes for the screen to turn on, and that's with me having to remove the battery and pray that it will somehow work when I put it back in. And then, if the screen lights up, it's tinted blue/green and elements are all over the place. It's very hard to use, which makes this so concerning, as this is my only way to contact people in an emergency.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@ajaxbeach without seeing what your phone shows you, but going by your description, this "it's tinted blue/green and elements are all over the place." sounds like a bad display. Here is the bad news. I have not found a single LCD for this phone. I have found lots of phones for sale that are relatively inexpensive. You may have to get one of those as a donor phone and then harvest the screen from that. The other issue is that there are no repair guides for this. The only lead I found is this video You will have to slow it down considerably to make it instructional. This repair will be a challenge.

While you work on your phone, take lots of pictures. Once you are done with it, take those pictures and create a guide for iFixit. That will help the next person that has the same problem as you do. It's easy and fun to create these guides. The iFixit community will appreciate this.
