Well today for some reason, my hero isn't working anymore. I had not changed any settings nor flashed anything or even charged it wrong. The symptoms are that everything appears to be working except the screen. A battery pull makes it so the phone vibrates when its turned on, and the buttons at the bottom even light up when used. I think its a screen problem because if not for that, the phone would work fine. What would cause this and is there any way I can get this fixed?

I can possibly help.
Are you rooted? Do you have a custom recovery and if so what version? Is your bootloader s-off?

If your answer is no to all the above

Try holding the volume down and press the power button. Does it boot into the bootloader?

Are you stock?

If so there should be an option for recovery. Press it.

Let me know any results. I'll post more info as needed.

Yeah sorry, I am rooted with the latest amon_ra (3.5 i think) however, even if i boot up with the volume button down, the screen doesnt show anything. I am fairly certtain this is a hardware issue... I might as well just break down and pay sprint the $35
