Fixing a Broken LCD ScreenYou replace it. Not the phone, The LCD screen. It's a HECK of alot cheaper than buying a new phone most of the time. If you go to 'EBAY' and type in the model of your phone, then look for accessories, you may find a replacement screen & PC board...(it's generally a can't buy one without the other kinda deal.) That's how I fixed mine after my niece dropped it. Pretty easy to replace on your own as well. A quick trip to the hardware store will get you the bit drivers you will need. Most of the time they are torx bits & the microbit drivers are about $5 to $20, with replaceable bits.

If the screen is intact try this

I had a phone do this and believe it or not if yours is having the same problem you can put it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes and get about 5 minutes of screen time to recover important messages or contacts. I don't know why but being a computer nerd I figured a deep freeze may help and it did! repeat if necessary.

Also, if that doesn't work for you, then try putting your phone in rice for 1 to 2 days. It worked for me, and my sister

Your best bet is to remove the plastic layer of the screen using a screw driver, but you may or may not strike the LCD panel and damage it if you are not careful. Dry the plastic layer with a towel and gently swab the LCD panel. Hope this helps!

How much would it cost to fix an android phone screen?

It depends on how broken it is. A phone screen is comprised of 3 layers. There's the glass layer which protects the digitizer and LCD display, the digitizer layer (which recognizes touch input), and then the LCD screen that sits underneath them all. If the glass is cracked but touch input still works and the LCD displays all the parts of the screen then replacement glass costs about $35. If touch input doesnt work then that means that the digitizer is damaged which is about $40 in parts. If the screen is so damaged that it does not display a complete picture then thats another $40 in parts (on top of the costs of the glass and digitizer) to get the LCD screen layer. Then you gotta pay the tech for his labor as well as the shipping costs for the new screen. Depending on the level of damage I would say that that $80 is the minimum you would pay and $200 would be the maximum if the screen has suffered extreme damage.
