Sadly that didnt work. maybe I should rephrase my issue. The phone screen stays completely black no apple logo not even a backlight illumination but I know the phone is on because itunes recognizes it.


Oh, I get what you're saying now. Sound like a faulty display assembly to me. Try to exchange it. Or, possibly a damaged display socket...

Detach your iphone battery, also, attach the battery and try to turn up the phone.
