    If you question me when i am trying to help then i wont, and you will be stuck with a broken device. Do the dang restore and let me know what happens. You actually have to trouble shoot the problem to slim down the possibilities. And yes restoring may turn your screen back on. Almost all phones that have replaced the screen on i had to restore to show an image.

    Oh and i am not a professional just really good at what i do!

    Ok let me know what happens and we will go from there I want trying to point my anger just towards you it just gets on my nerves I guess when there is tons of ( no offense) newbs that ask for help. then when you try to help they question you. It just at times gets frustrating

    Only problem with that is he has to take the screen off again.. lol

    Just be careful man and take the screen off slowly... It's way easier to take off with the new double sided tape on it.. Should be able to pry it off and still use the tape over again.

    I'd say that's a far price.. I charge $50 because 90% of the time you need to replace the digitizer also.. but you can save yourself $55 by just taking the screen off again. If it breaks.. then get it fixed at the shop.
