Default [Q] screen black

This morning I dropped my note 3 about 12 inches to the floor. For while it worked ok but then went black. Nothing seems to cause the screen to work. I am unable to do a manual factory reset (down vol + power + menu). When I try powering up, buttons light up (but who knows what's happening) I just had an alert so the the thing is not brain dead.

I have no warranty so I m hoping for a fix that I can do myself.

Thanking you in advance.

What You need mate is a Galaxy note LIVE DEMO UNIT . Make sore it is does mach with your product number (like Yours is SM-N9005 then the demo will be SM-N9005X )

You can find them on gumtree or ebay or so.
Then change the motherboard and the antenna over and You done. You could chang ethe screen only if You prefer that.

Once You done You still can sell the broken live demo unit on ebay auction as that can be still use for many parts taken out ( cameara, speakers etc... )

Hope I helped...
