    So I was given a note 3 as a loaner phone as my iphone 4s was finally dying.
    I left it on my bed last night with the case on and all, with the charger plugged in.
    I wake up the next morning to a black screen. But whenever i hit unlock the phone screen flashes green real quick then goes all black like the display is damaged or something. This happens when i power cycle the phone too.
    Is this a broken display? I can still use Vysor over ADB to control and see the phone.

    MODEL: TMobile N900T

    Sounds like a busted screen, so repair is required. It was on the bed, did you roll over on it in your sleep or something? I killed a tablet that way once, fortunately it was only some cheapo thing.

    I might've, but the way it was sitting when I woke up was in a spot i couldn't of rolled over to without hitting something bigger before it. Is it possible overheating caused it?

    Okay so I can't tell if the display is coming back or not. Earlier today it was like a small rectangle green, now the green box is all the way down the display. Is this good or bad?

    That actually sounds more like a failed battery (or charger). Trying to boot with zero power will do just that ... screen comes on for a split second and then goes black.

    Well, It actually boots and I can use Vysor to look at the screen over ADB. It's just my screen is dead. Whenever i hit power it flashes like the lcd has a problem then goes black

    Ah. Well, the fact that it 'flashes' tells me that something still works. If it is the screen itself then a replacement would fix it, but ti could be a failure of the GPU too (heat related? maybe) but it might be tough to diagnose.

    From what I've diagnosed it's a LCD problem.
