Does it mean a cracked screen?

Hi everybody, my iPhone 3Gs screen didn't turn on while my iPhone 3Gs was on , so i opened it and did a little mistake that made my iPhone's screen like this :

Is that broken ?

If is , does it mean that no lights will be on the screen (like black light or white light)?

Please answer me sooner guys, this is a very healthy problem.

Yes it's a broken LCD. Is the phone still recognised in iTunes? You mention it wasn't turning on.. So do you think the only problem is your display? You can follow the guide on the right to fix the LCD/display (under photo of phone) and you can buy the part here too. Let us know if you have any other problems.

Thanks a lot for your answer, I mentioned my iPhone 3gs' screen didn't turn on not itself :) , but it turns on as far as i know because the battery gets warmer.

And should the screen publish any light when the phone is on?

Thanks once more.


if the phone is on the vibrate will work. you can also try connecting to itunes and check it is may also hear the chime. Phones don't always have a lit up screen as in white, it may be grey with faint images of icons etc. Usually it is black if the LCD is completely dead.


Thanks a lot for your helps.


and another question : before my iPhone's screen problem , it's power button wasn't working well , I had to push the upside of my iPhone and press the power button with much force to get it to work.

How can I fix it?



try tightening the 2 small screws holding the power button in, it may have cracked with use and you may need to buy just that plastic part if tightening screws doesn't help. or it may just need a good old fashioned clean to get rid of finger grease that builds up over time. use the guide for headphone jack but only take out the button not the entire length of flex
