Default [Q] HTC One S Black Screen?

Hey there.

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...?

Only thing I can think of is water damage maybe shorted out the LCD. I'm unfamiliar with the One S so Idk where the water sensor strip would be..

So would it be worth grabbing a new screen assembly? or is the actual motherboard damaged. Thanks

Thats the chance you take ...did the ebay seller tell you the screen was broken ? if not, return it to them and cut your losses now
