Why is my screen black?

I have tried everything, yes even turning it on and off over and over. I dropped my phone earlier today on carpet and the screen just went black. There are zero cracks, it just won't show anything. The phone still continues to vibrate whenever I get a notification. I've tried using YouTube tutorial videos to help, but I am not tech savvy and I'm not sure what wires I'm supposed to be looking at, or what I'm supposed to be looking at at all! Any help would be appreciated.

Answer this question I have this problem too

When you dropped it, it may have dislodged the connectors for the screen. Yo would need to open it up and check.

Just follow the guide below on how to do it but obviously just take off and put back the screen you have.

Failing that then you may need a replacement screen or even have a backlight problem.
