No matter what you do, you can't get your phone to turn on.
If your phone won't turn on, especially if it has not been used recently, you may simply have a drained battery. Plug your phone into your computer or AC adapter and see if anything happens. Ideally your phone will recognize it has been connected to a power source and charge its battery. If it will no longer charge, the battery must be replaced.
It is possible that it appears nothing is happening because the display is bad. If the buttons light up but the screen remains black, the display must be replaced.
If your phone does nothing when plugged into a computer, the problem most likely lies in the motherboard.
Sometimes the connection of the power button to the circuit board can be damaged, resulting in an unresponsive button and the inability to turn on your phone.
There is a giant spiderweb across your screen.
Follow our repair guide to replace your screen without having to pay a professional.
A black screen or blurry image is displayed when camera app is launched.
The camera lens may be cracked or severely scuffed. Follow our guide to replace the entire camera unit as there is not a replacement option for the lens alone.
You are either having software issues or the actual camera has lost connection to the motherboard. The camera may have to be fixed/replaced. Follow our guide and get a professional outcome.
You just want to listen to music, but nothing plays.
The problem is often not even related to your phone. Headphones often short out long before the headphone jack has any problems, so try using a different pair of headphones.
Sometimes the connection to the motherboard is damaged or the inside of the jack becomes stripped. Either way, you are going to have to replace the jack.
The phone is unresponsive when trying to lock/unlock it.
If the phone will not lock/unlock the motherboard is most likely the problem and will need to be replaced.
The touchscreen is unresponsive when touched.
If the touchscreen will not respond you can try turning the phone off and on. If this does not work you will most likely have to replace the touchscreen digitizer with our installation guide.
You cannot hear any sound coming from the phone.
If you cannot hear any sound coming from the phone try turning up the volume. If that does not work, check to see if the phone is set to vibrate.
If the volume settings are not the issue then it must be a hardware problem. The speaker unit will need to be replaced using factory parts.
When you make a call the person on the other end cannot hear you.
If while making a call the person on the other end of the line cannot hear you, check to see that the phone is not on mute. If the phone is not on mute hang up and try calling again. If the problem persists the microphone will most likely need to be replaced.
When using the trackball the phone does not respond.
If the trackball does not work it will most likely need to be replaced using our installation guide.
If the trackball is jumpy or unresponsive it could simply have foreign materials jamming it's functionality. Follow our installation guide on how to replace you're trackball but simply clean out the unit first and test to see if responsiveness returns.
