So I may have accidently dropped/slightly threw my note 2 screen first on a tile floor. And it's cracked and the screen won't even turn on. It's probably not screen damage just digitizer or something right? It looks like it I'll add pics later. Took the battery out and put it back in and all that stuff but nothing. It vibrates like normal and the blue light was flashing I think, so it seems like it's on and it's just the screen. So anyways, I was just wondering what should I do next to troubleshoot/fix it? Thanks

I believe this and water damage, are everyone's worst nightmare. Sorry to hear about your misfortune and hope all is well in the end
Do you have insurance? Either through your provider or other insurers? I'm not sure what you can do to figure out exactly how to repair the phone without knowing where the issue is but if the phone still vibrates and the blue button lights up but the screen does not come on, there's your answer, possibly.
I second that. Find out where you can repair it locally, like asking Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint or even Radio Shack store. Insurance is good, but in a lot of the cases if you factor in how much money you pay for it in 2 years, and deductible, and waiting for repair or receiving refurbished phone instead - you better off probably just paying repair shop $150-$200 (just guessing?) or whatever price it cost to fix it.
Also, invest in a decent case with a good bumper/lip protection after the repair.
Last but not least, if this is the worst thing ever happened to you - you are ONE lucky person!!! There could be a lot worse thing... But still, sorry for the phone and hopefully you will be able to repair it soon!
There's a few youtube vids showing how to disassemble a GN2. It was interesting to see. Maybe check it out.
I guess there's no real way of telling until you pry the GN2 apart.
almath, I think Britton was responding more to the harsh statement from a previous post to yours. Hard and costly lesson in the end, but it's happened and nothing more can be done except trying to offer some help to the OP.
Announced at IFA 2012, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 follows its predecessor with a focus on creativity. The device improves the experience by adding more S-Pen functionality and new-generation specs, not to mention the slightly larger 5.5-inch display... Read More
