Hi, I have an Xperia Z1 Compact, I dropped it, smashed the screen and ordered a replacement screen, fitted it and I can hear it booting up and all the associated sounds so I know it's on but there's no display, I thought it was a faulty screen so sent it back ad received another one but it's still the same, I know it works as I've tested it on another Cmpact and it's fine so clearly a problem with the hardware of the phone, does anyone have any ideas what it might be?

Thanks

Hello @seaspray99,
Are you 100% sure that you've connected it properly and that you've not damaged the flex cable or the contacts on the mainboard?

Hello @seaspray99,
Did you replace just the glas or the entire display assembly?

The entire display, but it stopped working after it was dropped, I thought the LCD had been damaged but it's definitely not that.

Could be anything if the screen works when tested, might have damaged the board in the fall.
