Thanks for the help. It was fun to take apart my phone and see if I could fix it before trading in for a new one.

The screen is black: it shows light, but it is just projecting a black screen. Since this is a touch screen, that means that I can't see anything that I am doing or even make a phone call. I have memorized where the "answer" button is, so I can receive...

Thanks again!
