Default Phone is on, but screen does not work (potentially damaged screen)

Hey all

Ok so I have a bit of a problem. I went out to play airsoft today, and during one game, I forgot my phone with in my pocket. Half way through the game, I noticed it was and quickly tucked it away in a nice padded part of my load out. Well after getting back to the staging area, I attempted to take my phone out and keep using it. I noticed the screen was completely black and didnt want to work. Im still getting notifications sounds and various other bits of feedback, but just a black screen. I attempted to reboot the device and throw it into the boot load screen, but no luck. It just restarts the phone. Any ideas?! Im getting concerned!


The HTC One was acquired through a giveaway at my work. It was a special for mobile sales reps. It is an AT&T model and one of the originals. It is not a refurb and runs of AT&T. It is not rooted. I do not have insurance since the plan was done through an employee plan. I wanted to set it up, but the rep never responded, so I let it go.

The back and home buttons light up fine, but do not seem responsive. It seems almost as though the proximity sensor is being triggered. It makes all the normal noises, vibrations ect. it always does.
Aloha, Im Matt and I love life.
