White Screen on Motorola KRZR K1

6 replies
Found 5th Nov 2009
Bought a second hand one (sold as seen) and this has white screen.

When you turn it on the keypad lights up but the screen is black - nothing. If you then close the fli and reopen the flip, it then shows a white screen. So I believe it needs a new flex ribbon thing.

Has anyone replaced one and is it easy (ish??)

Can anyone recommend any good flex ribbons they've actually used please?
