It's a 5c does that matter? The phone is on I just can't activate the screen. I can see a dim light but that't all.


Well.. I would say you've damaged the backlight. Which can be repaired alone. It's a pretty complicated process. Here's a video

But, yes. What I had said earlier, would be the simplest method, if you don't have all the tools and experience. Just use parts and guides, from this site, for that model phone (iPhone 5C)
