Hey gang, i had my phone in my shirt pocket. I bent over and it fell out on my ceramic kitchen floor, but not the screen wont turn on. I tried to reset the phone by holding down the home and power button down. Nothing happen, so I tried syncing it to itunes. It syncs fine but with no picture. I tried calling my phone hoping it would trigger something, the phone rang ok but no picture.
Thanks in advance

I would say theres a good chance the LCD connector popped off when you dropped it. Are you familiar with the process of opening an iphone?
There are a lot of threads on here regarding it. Just don't pry the front off, use a suction cup. It's amazing how many you-tube videos show people digging into the poor thing.
You may want to wait for confirmation from some of the more experienced members, but I think this is most likely the problem with your phone

Ya, it wouldn't be the first time I've opened it. Had to replace the digitizer/lcd a week after I bought it. I hope that's it.

Good. Check it out and let us know what you find. Even if it is still plugged in make sure it is firmly seated. Should be labeled #1.
If you replaced the LCD with a non-OEM one it may have just plain failed too. Then again, I'm not %100 sure, but I think alot of the parts on Ebay that are touted as "OEM" are not authentic anyway.
