Re: ok iphone pros, need some help fixing a broken 3Gs

I'm no expert with iPhone hardware by any means, but have opened up a few and replaced the Touch Screen Digitizer, LCD, and Battery. That said, from what I can tell, it looks like either the LCD is bad or it's not connected properly. I'd check all the connections first, and if they're solid and aligned properly, try another LCD.

Best of luck,
R

Im pretty sure that I connected it right. I ordered an lcd screen off eBay that I'm waiting to come in. Hopefully it that will fix it.

looks like a busted LCD, install the one from ebay right and I think you'll be fine.
