I cannot see my display. Fixable?

I got my iPhone stuck in a car door this weekend. Now I can hear txt messages, voicemails, calls, etc. but I can't read see the screen. I can answer the call too so the touch screen part works, I just can't see anything. There is a crack in the screen and some lines and just a white image comes up. Will purchasing your replacement screen fix this issue? If not, what would I need to do to fix this?

So I followed the guide and installed it. However there is still no display. The front panel is fine, just the LCD screen was cracked. Now its just a white screen that shows up. Any idea why that would happen?

did you try a hard reset ? (press and hold the home & sleep buttons until the phone restarts)

since the lcd is cracked - you will need a new one

is the front glass also cracked ?

you will also need some tools - ifixit has everything you need in their shop

like the front panel with the needed tools or the LCD (the colored text's are links)

use the guide to replace the parts

OK, ALL USERS WHO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM I HAD, LISTEN CAREFULLY: check it out ------ u drop your iphone (the screen does not even have to crack), it drops. Its kinda like shock. When your iphone goes into shock you have to revive it.

Step 1: Plug your device into a wall or any power source. This will provide enough stamina for it to generate electricity through its system. KEEP IT PLUGGED IN.

Step 2: Hold down the sleep/ wake button (the button that turns your iphone on and off). Then, count for 10 seconds with your finger still on the same button (do it aligator style -- one one thousand two one thousand all the way to 10).

Step 3: Slide a finger across the top of the screen just like you would as if you would turn it off. (you have to be precise when you do it: IN THE EXACT SAME SPOT YOU FEEL WHEN YOU TURN IT OFF).

Step 4: Wait ONE FULL MINUTE with the iphone still charging. Then, hold down the sleep/ wake button. If the white apple shows up, then you have probably fixed it. If not, THEN GO TO YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER AND HAVE THEM FIX IT. Just remember there is always a way to fix it besides being excessively charged for money.

Austin Mendoza, this is an excellent answer. Problem with the answer is that it is to a question that is over 2 years old. Also, if you do read the question you will notice that it said "There is a crack in the screen and some lines and just a white image comes up. This would definitely lead me to agree with the first answer, for this question.
