Yeah as an MTP device I think. As in when you connect any device and a window pops up asking if you want to transfer files or sync or open folder or something.
But yeah it seems my screen is the culprit. While it was connected to my pc I held the power button to reset and the pc made the sound it makes when you disconnect a usb device. So I held the power button again while still connected to the pc and shortly after it made the other sound the pc makes when you connect a device. Then the MTP window pops up so I slide to unlock where I think it normally is and I start tapping the screen and then I get some sound from one of my daughters apps.
So it seems to be working except for I can't see anything on the screen. So its obviously something with the screen like you thought. I spoke to Amazon and they offered me an amazon refurbished replacement for $90. Should I go that route?
Its the first and probably the last time I buy refurbished especially if its not from the manufacturer.
