Screen comes on for nano second then goes off again

I have replaced the screen a couple of times. The first time I thought it was a dodgy screen so I ordered another and it does the exact same thing. When I press either the power or the home button the home screen appears for a nano second then goes off? Tried reboot via iTunes etc but nothing. Any ideas?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If you hold a flashlight on the screen, can you see a faint image? If so, it’s your backlight ic going out.

Hi,

when you replaced the screen did you desolder the sleep magnetic induction flex and transfer to your new display,

if not this will be the main cause for your problems.

A image of the flex is attached. It’s located at the bottom of the lcd

Ok tried this. Bought new part and soldered it on. I’m still getting a nano flash of the screen then nothing…. help?? It’s had new lcd digitizer screen and new flex cable but still the same problem. I can press either the power button or the home button and get the same thing. It’s driving me crazy!
