    Hey everyone,

    I just replaced my Evo screen a few days ago and now it seems I've done more harm than good.

    The screen remains totally black, save for the blacklight the comes on when I press the power button. It's fully functional, otherwise. Although I can't see what I'm doing, I can answer calls by swiping down, so I know the touch input works just fine.

    Did I damage anything? Are some things not connecting properly? What steps should I take to fix it? My warranty is void at this point.

    Many thanks!

    Regards,

    J Meyer

    Welcome to the forums!!! :)

    Have you tried to find a youtube video showing the exact steps to remove and replace an evo screen?

    Check this one out and see if it helps:
    HTC EVO 4G Teardown & Screen Replacement Directions by DirectFix.com - YouTube

    Please let us know if this works. May be another option I'm not thinking of.

    Thanks for the reply! :)

    This is actually the exact video I used when disassembling my device. I've deconstructed/reconstructed my device multiple times, but still no luck. I'm afraid something may have been damaged in the process. If not, I see a lot of connections in the back that I may have accidentally moved.
