I dropped my iPhone and now it has a white screen
I droppe my iphone today and it fell to the floor. When I saw it, it had a white screen. Everything works yet. I tried to turn it off, and I could do it because ALL the buttons still working, but just the screen is white. Also, I'm receiving text messages (because it rangs when I receive one). I tried to restore it with the power and home button but anything happens. Should I change my LCD screen?
PLEASE, I WAIT FOR YOUR ANSWER ASAP!
And sorry for my english, is not my first language.
It sounds like you may have just knocked a cable loose when you dropped it. The LCD screen doesn't sound necessarily damaged and it sounds like the rest of the phone remains functional.
iFixit has a Guide available for a possible fix here:
If I'm correct, what you're looking for is the black ribbon cable in step 4 labeled "1".
It's connected to a plug style connector, the block at the end of the cable is the plug which is simply pushed into a socket on the circuit board.
Ensure that this is connected and reconnect it if it is not and see if that solves the problem.
There is no locking mechanism or anything so it should be too hard to fix.
