Screen won't turn on after taking apart for a power button DIY
My power button was stuck so I decided to do a DIY, ordered all the tools and the button as needed. After assembly of the phone, it powers up, connects to itunes and computer, but the screen won't show up, only back-light... swiping or touching the screen doesn't do anything.
I double checked all the connections, I have NO screws left over, that means i've put everything back the proper way.
The only hick-up I've had was taking out the two screws that hold the power button assy. The digitizer and I'm assuming LCD cables were in the way, so I pushed them back as far as they could without snapping them, that didn't help so I had to take the rest of the phone apart just to get to that one screw.
After putting everything back together, the digitizer cable got stuck, so I had to reassemble, clear it and put everything back together. Nothing seems broken or torn, just slightly stretched I guess. I don't know what else could be wrong.
I hope I don't have to order a whole new screen (150$) because of that stupid digitizer cable that got stuck and because I had to replace that 5$ power button. Probably will never try to fix another iphone...
Any input on fixing this would be appreciated!
P.S.: it seems that I'm not the only one with such problem:
Is this a good question?
