Hey guys.
So I've been having all sorts of issues with my Note (first gen).
First thing is the usb charging port went out; so I bought another chipset and replaced it.
Phone was charging= SUCCESS!!

However, I turned the phone off and rebooted it; screen wouldn't power up, but my home screen buttons did.
Now, the screen is black and neither the home buttons power up.
(K, I know the phone is powering on because it vibrates and is discoverable by PC)

So what the crap did I do? I just simply replaced the chipset, I didn't go messing around with other components...
My phone isn't flashed or rooted either.

Any thoughts?
(....and I don't have the $$ to send it to samsung, out of warranty)

It it were me, i would open it back up. Its likely the square push down cables that snap in. Either push them down to insure they are connected or unplug them and plug them back in. I have seen it happen many times. Just dont tear the ribbons themselves. Sometimes they connect partially and are not fully seated. Hopefully this helps you out
