Default [Q] What's wrong with my screen?

I took a picture with my phone put it in my pocket. No signs of my phone acting up. Then I took my phone out like a minute later and only my bottom 3 buttons would light up. I could hear my phone ring and messages would go in but i could see nothing. My screen would stay off. I tryed rebooting but nothing helped. Any ideas? NEED HELP

This happened to me last summer and my situation did not bear good news. The technician told me that my mother board was falling apart and thus damaged connections to the display. I got a replacement phone for no charge because this was a hardware failure, nothing to do with hacking. Bring your phone to sprint ASAP and they should not give you trouble.

You're lacking some necessary info. What ROM and kernel? I had this happen with a kernel that had sweep to wake enabled. Re-flashed the ROM with the stock kernel fixed my issue.
