replaced LCD screen, phone went dead. turned on several days later

So, I replaced my cracked lcd screen, which I have done plenty of times, and when I tried powering the phone on, it wouldn't. The battery was fully charged at the time. I replaced the new lcd screen and put the cracked one back again, still dead. I don't believe it was the new replacement screen since I connected the cracked screen and still had same problem. Anyways, Three days later I tried turning it on again and surprise! It works back again. Has anyone experienced this problem before? Or know what could have caused it?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Its possible that you caused a non-fatal short when plugging in the new screen. I have seen a short prevent the display from functioning even when replugged, and the device power cycled. The 2 ways I've seen devices restored to full functionality was a soft reset or a full cycling of the battery itself (drained to zero then charged until boot).

Of course this only applies if you (one of the following) left the phone on/the battery plugged in/were not properly grounded when performing the repair.
