Is my Backlight filter blown?
I was working on my phone as it has touch ic disease, and until i got the money to fix it i was placing a little piece of stock paper under the heatsink that fastens agaisnt the sceen connector ribbons(done this before with no problems). The phone was working right before this, I had even fixed the front camera earlier that day, and when i try to turn it on that screen is black. When I plug it into my pc it detects an iphone but iTunes doesnt show the usual iPhone menu. When I turn the phone on I can feel the touch ic area getting warm/hot (not too hot i can hold my finger on it) and windows detects the phone as stated earlier. I tried turning off every light in the room and shining a bright led flashlight on the screen to see if I could see anything and no dice. I know I forgot to disconnect the battery (also just to mention i did try unplugging and reconnecting the batter after the screen would not come on) rookie mistake. Before I buy the repair serivce on ebay (which gives me no refund if ive misdiagnosed the problem) I'd like to confirm with a community of what I consider experts that it would most likely be a backlight filter issue.
Is this a good question?
