    Hi There,

    My kid cracked their 3g digitizer/home button so it wouldn't slide. The LCD still worked fine. I ordered a new digitizer and bracket and replaced it. Upon first power up I saw the main screen and though all was well...

    After a little bit the screen went white. I did hard reset, charging and attempted to sync none worked. The odd thing is that if I do a hard reset (home and on/off button) the lcd will come back but only with a battery and a red line as if it needs to be charged. Charging or having it plugged in does not change it and it will go back to all white.

    It seems to me the LCD and digitzer work as it will sometimes show the battery / charge display. I can't get past this state.

    Any ideas or help? Thanks.

    this is getting more weird.

    at one point i opened it again and double checked cables.... then when power up i had battery with red line then the apple logo with a "busy swirl" for a long time. then all white again. Can't be the LCD what can the issue be?
