I bought a broken HTC ONE S from someone on ebay.
The bottom lights light up but the screen remains black. It seems like it boots up properly as I pressed the home button and one of the volume buttons and heard a picture sound.
I saw online that it's recommended being booted into recovery mode using volume and power button but nothing.
Just though I'd ask before I buy a new screen assembly.
There is a crack that goes across the screen. I thought it might be broken but my experiences with broken LCD's are that when they break they sitll light up white...?
