No Light on screen totally black 5s

Hi,

The home button on my iphone 5S was not working so I thought I would open it up and have a look. I wasn't able to fix it so I decided to close it again but the screen was just black although it did vibrate and it could receive calls ( i just couldnt see anything on the screen).

I decided to open it again and check the connections from the LCD screen to the phone, I took all 3 of them out and put them back in but that still didnt work. I did notice that when I pressed the switch off button, the light did come on the actual LCD screen but just not on the phone. Also when I re fitted the LCD wire to the phone, it made a vibration. All the connections seem fine and the backlight does come on. Can anyone help me as to how I can get the actual screen get the light and touch. thanks

Answer this question I have this problem too

You might of scratched something in the screen and broke it. So the best bet is to buy the ifixit 5s screen replacement kit.

Did you unplug the battery before unplugging and plugging in screen cables?

If not:

1. Unplug the battery

2. Unplug screen cables

3. Plug back in screen cables

4. Plug back in battery

5. Plug back in home button cable

6. Turn phone on again.

If still same issue, screen needs to be replaced as the screen has gotten damaged. You are seeing backlight but no display which usually is a bad screen.
