    Here's the run down of this phones life in short as can be

    Fallen out of trees many times 60-75 feet ( former owner/ climber of/for tree services ) thrown , run over , hit , slammed - into walls , machines , trees , & what ever ... Frozen ( 0*-5* Fahrenheit lowest ) over heated ( desert heat 105*-117* ) both in the same day .... Been through hell & back again

    Back got cracked little by little ( had otter box switched to life proof )
    Cracked front screen 2-3 months ago while in life proof case ( my fault )
    Took out of case ( don't ask me why , just did. ) & it got wet/damp
    Screen died but still rang ....
    Got it fixed few days later ... New back , new front , minor repair to board ...
    Wire broke from. Board to view screen

    All fixed in 36 hrs (Wednesday morning ) whooooo hoooooo

    Now white screen .... Won't reboot , turn off ,nothing .... Yes I looked / searched for cures / solutions , basic the 2 functions to turn off or Reboot. Nothing

    What now ?

    Gotta be in it to win it
    Take the phone into apple? You didn't say if it was backed up, but sounds like it may have reached it's end of life.

    I'd say it's dead, as mentioned, take it into apple and see what they say.

    On another topic, I removed your email address - its no a good idea to have it posted, spambots will grab it and you'll get inundated.

    Hard reset? If that doesn't work then take it back to the shop you got it fixed at and ask them to take a look at it again.
