    My droid has been acting up for a week now and I should have done something about it but didn't get a chance. What happened was whenever you would slide out the physical keyboard the display would go off. Sometimes the phone would still work but no display. Sometimes I would restart the phone by taking out the batter an the display would be a white screen with multi colore noise. I could get the phone back on by moving the keyboard in and out a couple times. I've been able to use it until today, and I didn't back up my stuff.

    Now today I've been trying to get it started but all I get is the white screen. I just need a couple minutes to get a couple more things off of it. I've been trying all day and was wondering if anyone had any ideas. I need to go to the store and hope it is covered still. I have taken good care of this phone since I got it.

    It hasn't been a year since the D3 was released so you will still be covered by your warranty.

    It sounds like your screen or digitizer inside the phone has gone out. Verizon should replace it as long as you weren't running a ROM or anything.

    it is the Flex cable.
    I had the same, i opened it, flex cable had a crack
    Screen Go black after slide keyboard. Please Check My Video

    Replaced the flex cable.. it worked for a week flawlessly.
    Than it did same problem again..
    When sliding out the keyboard, i can hear a strange sound, which is the flex cable being raped..:))

    it seems to be a DROID 3 bug!!
