Default [Q] Screen issue, can only see pixels

Hi,

I'm not sure if there already is a thread about this problem, so sorry if there is

When I grabbed my Nexus 5 out my pocket, the screen didnīt work. It only shows pixels. Iīve tried to reset it to factory settings using a hard reset but that doesnīt work. It still only shows the pixels. I canīt send it back to LG for repair because Iīve changed the kernel and I canīt get a connection with my pc. Does anybody have any idea how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

What do you mean by "can only see pixels" ?? Blurry lines?? Distortion?? If so, there's a possibility that the flex cable might have gone bad.. In any case, you need to send it in for repairs.

Yes I can only see blurry lines in different colours. But is it possible to repair it by replacing the screen + touch module?

May be, May be not. No one can know the extent of the damage without opening up the device.

You need professional help. So, it's either Google (if you've bought from play) or LG. There's nothing you can do here as the screen is completely useless. Just send it in and hope for the best.
If you want to backup your data, you could boot up the phone (if you can) and use adb to backup if you've enabled usb debugging. But that's about it..

Good luck!
