    Hi all,
    For a while now I have my iPhone 3GS reacting to iTunes, I can restore firmware, sync, it 'blips' or buzzes on connection (according to switch state on the phone) but... there's no image!

    I can press the home / power buttons and the screen get's backlit but there's no apple logo on startup, homescreen, etc... I connected the screen from another 3S (which worked normally) and also no images.

    I restore to basic 4.1.2 system without restoring data: white screen on button presses.

    I restore to 4.1.2 system with my data and there's a black backlit screen on button presses..

    What can be the problem here? I haven't jailbroken the phone, just want to get the d@#$! working.

    Check to make sure ribbon cable #1 hasn't come off its connector when you put it back together.
