Hi Chris,

It sounds like your LCD is just not secured on correctly. I would try reseeding the connector and if that does not work simply perform a hard reset and see what that does.

Contrary to Apple Forums a restore almost never fixes hardware issues.

Hope this helps!

Reseeding? Is that just putting the connector back in place?

Yea Chris just lift the connectors and clip them down again if still no screen then plug into iTunes and see if the iPhone is reconised if it is then the screen is faulty
