iPhone 3G No Picture After Screen Replacement

Hi,

Can someone please advise me, I recently cracked the screen on my iPhone 3G, it worked fine but I decided to replace the glass and digitizer. The repair went well until I powered the phone up, no picture but all the noises, vibrations etc. I thought I must have damaged the LCD so bought one off ebay and replaced it hoping that would solve the problem. Still no luck! I am at a loss. Could it be the glass to dark (non OEM) on the face prox sensor? Should I send it to an approved repairer? If so, can someone recommend one in the UK?

Thanks for you time,

James.

Try to do a hard reset of the phone where you hold the power button & the home button at the same time for 10 second. It should fix the problem.

Also, I know this sounds obvious, but triple check that you have connected correctly and snuggly all the ribbon cables, I know that when I did the replacement myself, the cables caused me a lot of grief.

Something probably went wrong during the restore process. Did you get any errors? Try restoring it again.

Off-topic: Why are you using an iPhone 3G? Are you using it as an iPod touch or are you not going to upgrade to a newer model? Or are you going to wait until the next iPhone is released? Or are you waiting for your new iPhone to arrive?

iPhone 3G Repair issues

You may have bought the wrong lcd screen for your iPhone. it will "feel" like it attached properly, but it will not work correctly.
