Introduction

No matter what you do, the screen will not display anything or respond to any touch gestures. Replacing the LCD screen is the best option.

Use a small #000 Phillips screwdriver to remove all the screws and the magnetic pickup bit to take the screws out easily once they are unscrewed. Keep all the screws in a container and the two different types separate. Remove the two screws on the right side. On the same side there is USB connector, open that little door and unscrew the little screw inside of it.
