TP Screen Blank...

Okay so I found my TP today... Charged it up and turned it on. The screen never came on. All buttons light up, keyboard lights up. Even the backlight comes on. When i connect to my laptop I can see all the files on my phone. Never had a custom rom... Wasnt dropped in water, or damaged in any way... Any ideas fellas???? Had it to long to get a replacement. Not my primary phone, but I like the phone. Cant hard reset because I cant see the screen.

You can't hold the volume key+power and hit the reset pin?

Re: TP Screen Blank...

Well I've heard of people basically wedging things between the screen to get it working again, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Heck, I heard of a guy who fixed his screen problem with a piece of paper...

At any rate, it might just be the ribbon cable. Unless you feel like tearing into it... I'm not sure what you would want anyone to suggest.

No amount of software will save you from hardware failures
