    Default New LCD stays white
    I damaged the LCD wire on my 3GS
    I got a new one and put it in.. The screen stays white when I turn it on

    I put the screen on another 3GS and worked good

    How could this have happen?

    If it helps it's a new bootrom iPhone

    Thanks

    Is the connector on the board damaged or dirty?

    And you tried a restore? If so then you have a bad connector on the board

    I would have tried another LCD. Many times one LCD may not work, and another one will. Luck of the draw.

    Did you try an LCD with a bad backlight? I keep a number of those on hand to test for this sole purpose. It tells me if its something else that is causing the problem or the phone's display IC chip.
