[Q] Do I have a bad screen or could it be some other problem?
I just replaced the screen assembly on a Nexus 5 (had been dropped). However, the screen doesn't work at all. No backlight, no image. The rest of the phone works fine though. It boots up, vibrates, blinks, makes different notifications, even communicates with a computer.
Is this definitely a bad screen, or could it be something else? Nothing else looks damaged on the phone that I noticed while taking it apart. The broken screen also didn't work--I just assumed it had broken it's digitizer in the drop.
