Blank screen, no backlight
The screen on my iPhone 5 no longer comes on.
I can hear the clicks as I tap on the passcode screen but it remains completely black with no backlight.
I have dropped it numerous times but the screen never broke and I never had any issues (it's in a good Belkin case).
In the past 6 months the battery performance has deteriorated, sometimes it needed charging 2 or 3 times per day with medium-low usage.
I am on the road a lot so I use a generic cable and cigarette adaptor in my car to keep it from dying.
And now suddenly the screen went blank; I do not recall it happening after dropping it, it just seems to have happened.
Can anyone suggest how I can diagnose the problem?
Is this a good question?
