Non-responsive (blacked out) phone but recognized by iTunes
I replaced my phone screen on my 5S and tried to turn on the screen but it does not display anything (no backlight as well). It was working for a few minutes before.
I gave my phone a call it did not receive any sounds/notifications and flipping the vibrate/silent switch did not cause the phone to vibrate motor to activate. (it did right before I had done the fix w/o the screen on).
The phone is recognized in iTunes so I believe the phone is on but I've tried numerous restores but nothing changes. Sticking the phone in DFU with reiboot and plugging in with iTunes says the phone may possibly have an error and needs to be restored. Not sure if this is the standard window that pops up during DFU mode.
Pressing the home + power i.e. hard reset also does nothing.
Any possible solutions?
Is this a good question?
