Dropped iphone, replaced lcd & digitizer, now white screen
Sorry if this is a completely wrong place to post this, but I can't find answers anywhere..
My phone was dropped pretty hard and so I thought by replacing some items it would work again. I've replaced the LCD & digitizer, but now all I see is a white screen. Voice/speaker/music works fine, but I can't receive or make calls or slide the bottom to unlock it (I don't hear the unlock click when I try). It's not reading my SIM card either.
I've taken it to several people, one guy said it might be the #3 connector, and from that what I see is broken is the white latch covering it snapped off. Would this be giving me the problems anyway?
Could it be the LCD that I replaced is broken? Or is it something else entirely??
Thanks for all your help.
Believe it or not..........
I joined this forum because I had to tell someone about this as I think it is so unreal (but it is real). I had the same problem as you.
I had 2 iphones, one had a cracked digitizer(outer touch screen) but the LCD and the rest of the phone was working fine. The second had an intact digitizer but LCD was busted and the phone kept getting itunes deadly Error 28. I tried for weeks to sort out the error but no luck.
I gave up on the Error 28 phone so put the good Digitizer on the good phone. As soon as I turned on the once good phone it started flashing white and turned its self off. I restored in DFU and recovery I used all the old firmwares with all the old Itunes. Ireb, redsn0w, and more. but still it wouldn't reboot and got stuck on a white screen.
I really thought I had done something to the logic board or i forgot to turn it off before I took it apart and blew something. I though there was no hope. I spent days trying to revive it getting Itunes errors ranging from 3015 to 9.
It took me a while to think about what I did before the problem. I took off the Digitizer and put the broken one back on and WHAMMMMY. It worked like a charm first time.
I couldn't believe that the digitizer could have such an effect on the whole phone, the software and everything.
Sorry for the long reply I am just amazed at what was causing the problems.
A SUMMARY: IF YOU CHANGED YOUR SCREEN ANYTIME AND ARE NOW GETTING RESTORE ERRORS AND WHITE SCREEN PROBLEMS, CHANGE YOU DIGITIZER (or at least check contacts I think on contact 3).
I don't think this will work on all white screen errors but if you can do it try it.
Good luck and let me know if it works
