Is my phone toast?
Iphone 5 64GB. Phone is is excellent condition, kept in otter case. Not sure what happened to it, possible one of my kids could have dropped it. screen is black
Sleep button stopped working a couple of months ago. Now the screen is black but I can hear siri when touching home button, but not right away like there is a home button issue as well now. plugged into itunes and I am able to see everything so I backed it up. took it to a local repair shop and they tried 3 different screens and told me that the screen is not the problem and everything looks good inside but they are unable to do anything else. Apparently this guy only knew how to change screens. He advised me to get a new phone.
I would like to try and fix this phone if possible. I know I need sleep/power button first but I am unsure what other parts to buy before I take it apart.
Also I found out entering the serial number of this phone on apples web site that it was part of a defective sleep button and they would fix it for free with 3 years of the first sale of this phone, which ended about a month ago!
Is this a good question?
