Screen problems

Hello, I've had my iphone 3g for about a month. I bought it as a replacement phone. The other day, it felt like being a bunny, and the screen popped out of the shell. Since then then screen isn't working. Thinking it was just a minor problem I just pushed the screen and components back into the shell. When I pressed the home button nothing happened. Any help?

you need to start this as your own question, this one is long dead. tell us if you have any display or vibrate..


I think it's time to disassemble it and take a look at the cables. Possibly dislodged or torn cables...

If the screen popped out while it was on, it could have been damaged. Definitely remove it and see if any of the ribbons were disconnected. Put it back together, and try turning it on. If it doesnt work, press the home and power button for about 15 secs or until you see the apple sign to reset it. Let us know if that works out.
