10-18-2009, 04:57 PM #1dropped my iPhone 3g now all i see is white screen
My iphone was on my lap... when i got out of the car.. my iphone dropped face down. in a "very" wet area.. i picked it up right away. and pressed the hold button right away.. then immediately all i see is white screen and black lines.. so i thot its just wet. So i left it overnight on top of my cable-tv-box (its warm).. to maybe dry it out.. woke up its still the same.
oh just an fyi.. when i dropped it.. it was still ringing and i was still receiving txts.. cuz i hear it.
sometimes all i see is pure white screen.. no black lines...
ive looked it up in youtube... the screen looks very similar on what they call the "White Screen of Death (WSOD)"
so far i tried restoring it using itunes.. shift + restore 3.0
it went succesfully.. but screen is still d same..
so im thinking its definitely a hardware problem.
is there anything i can do to try to fix it myself maybe??
buy some pieces on ebay or somthing??
i can't really call apple or go to apple store to ask for help.. cuz my iphone is unlocked..tmobile.. and jailbroken... and i dont think i have any warranty or insurance for it.
please help me...

Either the flex cable for the LCD came loose.....or your LCD is now busted. Start with reseating the cable, if the issue persists you need a new LCD.
