  3. Same issue happened on BOTH my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and my Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime someone gave me. Whatever Im doing glitches, the screen turns black, and prompted a couple of times and there are green or purple glitches on the screen. After that, its just black and I can hear text beeps, hear notifications, but no lights and no response…Ive done everything here and to no avail..How can I fix my phone??

  4. Galaxy note 4-problems began with occasional freezing screens and rarely a black screen. Wiped cache and did factory reset. Freezing screens are no longer but black screen issue happens often now. Removing battery and replacing can result now with no start or action at all, vibrate as if to restart but nothing, or downloading/do not turn off target. Ive performed the hold power down for 1,2,and 3 minutes before re-inserting battery. Batteries, I have 2 and both are good. Black screen seems to come about after sitting idle for a bit or after plugging in charger. A corrupt sd card perhaps?

  5. Thank you fore the troubleshoot steps but this did not help my LGG4, I received an system update from Android and not Verizon’s which I always hold off until nite time to do, prior to counting sheep I started the update, once I woke hours later the phone was black but you could tell it was on because of the barely viewable light background, I have tried everything even the hard reset which I can access the screen but nothing happenings at all, it stays at that option screen for about 15-20 mins then shuts off. Is it possible to find someone to reinstall the OS from scratch? I do have the new LG now but the 4 in my opinion was the bomb and it is in such mint shape I would hate to waste it.. Thank you for taking the time to read this and possible helping me out.

  7. I use this LG android only for Spotify. It still has my email on it but is never opened there. I have to update Spotify some. The screen has gone black before and within a few days it started coming back on and yesterday it started taking its time coming on. This morning I was listening to it to find I can still hear my music but can no longer see the screen to know just what I am doing and is not wanting to come back on. Time to get a new one or any advice? I am so use to this one and not wanting to use anything else.

  8. Earlier I was out in the snow and my phone screen went from complete white to black, it definitley works because it still vibrates when I get messages and the screen is responsive, just black. Do you think it’s some snow and has damaged the screen or would this method work on my phone? (Samsung Galaxy J5 2016)

  9. Hi, I’m using a Samsung j5 prime and today, when I was playing games, it suddenly blacked out. I tried taking out the sim cards and putting them back in, tried holding the power button. It won’t work. And I don’t think you can remove the back cover of j5 prime to remove the battery. I tried charging the phone but it doesn’t show the charging red light. Also I had 70-80% batteries left when it happened. Please help…

  10. Hi to all,

    I know this is a very long gone thread but i would like to revive this. I have found a way to make the black screen of the game FFBE go away and make it work again without having to resort in resetting the phone. What i did was this.

    Method 1. Lucky Patcher
    1. download Lucky Patcher ( i think for some, this is the reason they had their game in black in the first place but this is also the fix)
    2. select the tool at the bottom then search to “reactivate ads for google” just search for it under the tools.
    3. then select erase the Dalvik-cache.
    4. The phone will reset and it will rebuild the apps once restarted.
    5. just wait for it to finish and then try the game.

    Method 2. without lucky Patcher
    1. Reboot your phone into recovery mode
    2. try to clear Dalvik-cache from there.
    3. then reset your phone or reboot.
    4. same thing for step 4 and 5 above
    5. for this method some recovery does not offer the clearing of dalvik cache and it might not be available from the recovery options due to varying of recovery versions. but if it is available doing the clearing in recovery mode is still the same with clearing the Dalvik-cache by using any root application that can do so.

    This worked for me. But of course do not do this if your battery is low. try this at battery of 100% for you will not want your phone permanently bricked due to interruption of the application building. And of course you should be rooted to be able to do this. For some that have the game in black will be rooted of course but for some that is not. try rooting your phone first. Or you can directly reset your phone if rooting is not necessary.

    Note: you can skip number 2 if you hadn’t done anything with patching to remove the google ads for some of the game applications. It doesn’t necessarily mean you applied patch for google play services itself, but once you applied the remove ads to other apps it will also affect the whole activity of your google play itself in anyway.

  11. hi iam using micromax canvas gnight 2 when iam sing phone usually its show black screen and its open ofter swiched off phone. how to fix this problem

  12. If the problem is related to any or software then you should see the blue/green/red options when performing factory reset. But if you do not see anything on the screen then I guess its a hardware issue and in such a situation I would suggest to contact a technician and let him fix the issue.

  13. How do you do a factory reset if your phonescreen is just black. Son was watching utube video and it just went black. I took out battery and reloaded it. Charged it. Took out sd card and sim card. Reloaded… Red light flashes when I turn on the G3 Vigor, but only a black screen shows, not the sprint yellowe screen or background. I can answer calls if they come through because I know where to hit to answer calls, but thats it. Even then its still black screen… Please help!!!

    1. Some people like me are still able to get the screen after pulling the battery and holding the key combo above, it takes at least me to a menu with options, but It just wont load the OS, kinda like safe mode on a PC

      Hope you can get help..
