If the phone is still receiving messages/calls etc and is turned on then you need to check the lcd connection and replace if necessary

If nothing is showing on the screen, the screen may be damaged, or the LCD flex cable has come loose from the logic board. The first step I would try is to disconnect the battery for a few seconds and then reconnect it.

I have Disconnected the battery for about a minute. But no change. Even if the screen is damaged, the Phone would still vibrate. switching it from mute to normal would also make it vibrate

After checking all the flex cables to be fully seated and make good connection I would try to put on a new screen assembly and see if that fix the problem.

Ok, i have just tried a NEW Screen but still nothing. I just had a thought about the Power/Lock Button maybe not working?

Is there anyway to bypass pressing it, like you can with the home button? (But surely when i charge the phone, it should turn on, and i would see it charging, so maybe not. Any other ideas?

FIXED: With a new Screen fitted, i then held the POWER button & Shorted the HOME BUTTON TERMINALS Internally. This reset the phone. It not turns on and works fine. Just need to get a replacement Home Button Ribbon. Job Done.

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!
