essomevriel,

Samsung LED displays are most tiny displays then ordinary LCDs so it could be damaged internally or display flex contacts could be disconnect due to such a incident you described in question. i can assume display is damaged but required to boot with new display to verify

Hope this answer help you to understand the status of your device

Hi there!

Just did the same mistake... I think the backlight is broken. Have you tried to look at the screen under a bright light while 'menu' and 'return' buttons are lit?

In my case, just a part of the backlight was off, and screen took some time to wake. Then all the backlight went off, like one or two days later... :( But if I look at the screen closely, I see that pixels are allright, thus my guess at your question.

If anyone knows a way to fix it, I'll be more than happy!

My son dropped his and it went black as it sounds like yours did. I pulled the back off, disconnected the two ribbon cables (probably it was not necessary to disconnect the one from the USB/charging port), and re-connected it, viola! There is a video on Youtube here.

Kinda late to answer you but hope it helped. The cable disconnect/reconnect worked twice, but a couple of months later a flickering problem developed and now my son can't use it (used it daily a lot before that). It flickers, goes black, and the displays "SDCARD MODE" in upper left coroner. It won't reboot despite text telling you to press Volume up: for normal boot - I have to wait for the battery to die.

Came to this site, wondering if a new motherboard might fix it. Samsung repair wanted $330.
