My LG Optimus V's (just got it a few days ago as a birthday present) screen seems to be permanently blank... In case someone asks... yes, it is activated.
I rooted the phone using Gingerbreak 1.2, installed rom manager/clockwork recovery mod, then attempted to backup my phone in case something went wrong. However, when I started the backup, I noticed that the screen was completely blank. I was kinda freaking out, so I just took a shower while it did it's thing. When I came back, it was done creating the backup and it showed up in Rom Manager. After toying with some of the things I can do with it rooted (I only rooted it to see how much of a difference it would make without changing the kernel), I decided to recover that backup. When my phone restarted to recover the backup, the screen was blank once again. After waiting for over an hour, I concluded that it must have finished (since my HTC Hero would finish restoring and never reboot until I tell it to) and took out the battery. Afterwards, it would show the LG splash screen... then the blank screen.
What I Did:
I was thinking about the android screencast java application a few hours after my problem first developed. I plugged my phone into my computer, got adb working, and android screencast showed me that my phone was actually getting stuck at the clockwork recovery mod screen. I tried many things... I installed a CM7 rom, flashed 3 different recoveries, flashed an overclocked stock rom, etc. Eventually, I flashed the stock rom (no changes whatsoever) and stock recovery. Now I can hear my phone, but cannot see it. However, I should note that while using CM7 the same thing happened. The only difference being that I could use android screencast to see the screen (the phone was actually working) with CM7. Now with the stock rom, adb is disabled and I cannot see the screen or do... anything.
What I Think I Should Do:
I'm thinking about calling Virgin Mobile and telling them that my screen is defected. If they see the issue they'll probably think that it's a hardware issue (for all I know, it could be) and they'll probably give me a replacement. However, if anyone as had the same problem and fixed it, I would love to know.
I would love you hear your opinion on this and, if possible, a fix. Thanks in advance!
