    My phone had a bad ear speaker, so I took it apart, decided i would just deal with having to use speaker phone. I went put it back together and now nothing works on the screen, backlight, or lcd. I believe it is on because when I connect it to a computer it recognizes it, but I didn't do anything with the screen. I took off the connector shield and made sure they didn't somehow come unplugged. Is there anything simple that I may have missed?

    Um...before you took your phone apart, why didn't you take it to Apple and have it repaired or replaced under warranty? :eek:

    Fair question. I bought it 2nd hand, didn't realize they are all less than a year old.

    it wouldn't matter if you purchased it secondhand. warranties are covered no matter what. for instance, i bought an xbox 360 a while back and it red-ring'd of death'd and microsoft covered me completely.

    I think you quoted the wrong person.

    Right, but the warranties on electronics are typically limited to one year. (They may have extended the xBox 360 because of a manufacture defect, tons of people had that known problem) I didn't realize that the phone was less than a year old. I looked up later that their release date was Sept of 2013

    Just wondering why you didn't check the warranty before you took the phone apart?
