iPhone 3G Screen Problem
My mum dropped my old iPhone on the ground and now the screen is just white. When I slide my finger accross the bottom of the screen it still unlocks like usual, so I think its a hardware problem but I'm not sure. I've tried restarting it and holding the home/on buttons for 10 seconds but the problem still stays. Anyone got any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks

Well I havent been told to take it off and I've been posting for a couple of months now. That's a stupid rule btw. And how is it "sig spam?" That's not what spam means =\. Anyway can we stay on topic? Is there a way to fix a "shot LCD"?

You have been told now. And it has been removed. "Stupid rule" or not it is a rule of this forum and will be followed.
I did post on topic. A bad LCD means you need to replace your LCD. You can find a iPhone repair shop to do it or if you are feeling adventurous these can be bought online from various places and replaced by yourself, personally I use muchbuy.com but there are many other places as well.
We also have a retired moderator that you can send your phone to and he can fix it for you and send it back. His site is: Tulsa and Owasso iPhone and iPad Repair

It may be a bad connection. When it was dropped it could have knocked the cable loose slightly which would definitely give you a white screen. Either that, or like Simon said, the drop killed the LCD screen. I'd check the connection first. When disassembling, the LCD is connector #1. Be careful with the #3 cable if you decide to try yourself, easy to damage for beginners. There is a little door that you lift up gently and then slide the cable out the other side. Connectors #1 (LCD) and #2 (Digitizer) just pop out when pried up gently.
Let me know if you have anymore questions.Twitter: @irevivalrepairs | Instagram: @irevivalrepairs
