Take good care of my things but my cell phone of 4 years suddenly got a static screen and is completely disabled. Its a Samsung Galaxy. Has this happened to anyone? Just need to get the display working, even if temporary. Staples couldnt fix it, cell phone company couldnt either. Just need some key thing off my Gallery thst didnt have time to back up. Help!

Uh-oh. Sounds like it's bricked. If so, I think your only option is to order a new motherboard and swap the memory chip out. You can get boards for old phones on ebay for $50 or so, cheaper if you order from China. I'd call around to some tech repair shops too, try CPR (Cell Phone Repair) in Littleton.

There's a bunch of them. We Fix It is another one. Sometimes the smaller shops are better, like "Discount Cell Phone Repair", also in Littleton.

Called CPR, they said it could be a display issue, a connection issue inside or ghe motherboard. Staples coulnt fix it so its mightmight not be the be the display. If its the motherboard, my gallery is toast.

Not a display issue if you can't pull files up on your pc. Your memories are there, there's a memory chip on the board. Just a matter of finding someone who can extract them. I would definitely give Gregg Stanley a call.
