Phone Dropped: Black screen

I dropped my LG Nexus 5, with a heavy impact on the floor. The screen just hung up and became non-responsive. When I long-pressed the power button it just went blank and didn't turn on again. Charging seems useless as it doesn't respond at all. Is it worth trying to replace the battery? I opened up the phone, couldn't notice any visible damage to the motherboard.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I agree. I've fixed more Android screens with broken internal lcds than busted glass lately. Android lcds are usually paper thin and crack very easy. Look at it under a lamp or direct light and youll usually be able to see a few streaks that indicate it's cracked.

I think you get a damage on your LCD or Touchscreen. I had the similar issue on my old iPhone 3GS. I am to 90% sure that this is the issue.

This might very well be the case but I couldn't hear any sound from the phone nor does it react when plugged into a computer. Thats why I thought this was either a battery or motherboard issue.

Have you tried a "Hard-Reset"? Try to connect it in "Bootloader" Mode through a computer with "fast boot" installed and type in the following Command: "fast boot device" or "fastboot devices". If you see you device, only the screen is cracked and you need to wipe it in the recovery, had this issue on the Desire X of my mother.

I recently dropped my Nexus 5 and the internal lcd showed some lines on the left side of the screen. The funny part was that the glass didn't have a single scratch, but it still had to be changed...
