    Hi

    Dropped my phone the other day and smashed the digitizer and LED screen, the phone still functioned at this point as I could turn it on and get an orange charge light when I plugged the charger in also the buttons lit up and dimmed when the power button was pressed (as they do when the screen is locked/unlocked), so I ordered replacements from eBay.

    After stripping the phone down and replacing the screens I came to turn the phone back on and it didnt do anything. So i plugged the charger in and i got a faint greenish screen that got gradually brighter, i dont get a charge light when the charger is plugged in and the buttons dont light up.

    Any help appreciated??

    Thanks

    Joe

    I would disassemble and re check every connection, especially the main connection to the mother board.

    Can't really help much there, but did you definitely have an AMOLED screen and did you definitely buy an AMOLED screen? given that some devices are LCD, its best to check.
