The first course of action is to double check the display connectors. I know this sounds dumb, but you'd be surprised how often this can fix the problem. Which version of iPhone do you have (original, 3G, 3GS)?

can you explain your answer?


Don't know why but a recovery of the iphone fix this problem : black screen LCD when you put it on a iphone not plugged off.

For not lost data just turn your iphone into recovery mode and escape from recovery. (Recboot is perfect for that)

i have this problem on many iphone 3G, 3GS i've repaired and i have fixed this problem like this.

soory for my poor english



just wondering why you don't have to power off? mostly black lcd recovers from a hard reset with home and power for 10sec. thought you might have a magic answer for why you needed to do the recboot...


Some time forgot to turn power off or put it on accidentally during repair.

The only reasons why i use recboot it's to not have to lost the data with a DFU.
