Cody, what did it end up being? I've done the same except only broken the back. I've ordered a repair kit to replace the back panel. I'm hoping the battery connection is jarred loose. Were you able to resuscitate your phone?

I don't know how to fix my phone I've tried everything but nothing seems to work. I think I have a very unique problem. My phone is cracked and when I turn it on, light shows through the cracks and a weird glitch looking thing shows on the top right corner of the screen. I can still hear the buzzing from if I get a text or if I turn the ringer off or on. I've tried everything, but nothing seems to work, or is not the problem that I have. I don't know what to do and I don't want to spend a lot of money on get it repaired. What do I do?????

Our company buys back broken LCDs assemblies and phones from repair shops. We've been through thousands of iPhones with this issue.

My gut feeling is you have about a 75% chance that it's a bad LCD digitizer assembly and a 25% chance that the connector on the board is bad or other board related problem.

Humm... actually thinking, you wouldn't want to try the screen first. You say it wont power on. First thing is to make sure the battery connector is still connected to the board. You can see this fairly easily by removing the back cover (but be careful and read how to do so first)

For "free" you should check that and maybe it will cut on and just have a cracked screen.

Does the phone make any sound or show any signs of life? Anything show up when you plug the charger into the phone?

...if no signs of life (sound, vibrate etc, assuming that the phone has enough battery to juice up) ...you probably have an issue non related to the broken LCD screen but could have both.

If you have it charged or can charge and can feel vibrate when you hit the switch or head sounds or calls with no display, then it's the LCD.

I dropped my phone last night. It is an iPhone 5c. When I picked it up the screen was totally busted and it was also glitching. Now it has a red light near the earpiece and won't turn on at all. It only turns on a black light. What can I do to repair it? It is brand new

I dropped my phone 2 months ago and the cracks were very minor. But last week near the home button, the glass fell off and you could see the black part of the phone. I got up in the middle of the night and it was working perfectly. I got up in the morning and it didn't turn on. There was no sound, no vibration, no light, not even when you charge it. Please help me how do I repair it!
