Check your pin connector.

Do what Lekice says but first lift the screen up and make sure phone is turned on and press power button to put to sleep.. Now with the metal part of the screw driver touch the two metal prongs that's in the picture together at the same time with the screw driver this should then light up the screen as if you pressing the home button..

If screen fails to light up you need to change dock connecter. if screen lights up then just bend them two progs up a little higher
