Hoping you all can help. My kid stepped on the back of my wife's phone (her fault for having it on the floor if you ask me...) and it caused a pressure crack across the back glass but left the front screen untouched. However, when we turn it on you hear the little touch sounds it makes but the screen only slowly flashes to a solid white and then slowly fades. So the digitizer seems to work just fine but the LCD does not(?) As stated, the phone responds to touch, makes notification sounds when called/texted/emailed, etc... However the screen will not come back on.
** I've attached a (admittedly bad quality) picture of the solid white screen in case that helps for some unknown reason... **
I am fairly certain I can order a new LCD and replace it for a quite low price, however it looks like a lot more trouble than its worth and she has a replacement phone already. My question is I'd like to sell this phone to a couple vendors I've found on Craigslist that are interested, but I need to be able to wipe it completely (she doesn't have any nudy pics, however there is some sensitive financial info in the emails and texts that can probably be accessed on the phone, although she can probably just change her gmail password to block them from accessing here email, but I'm not sure what may be cached on the phone.)
Its never been rooted, but I wasn't sure if there was an all USB way (adb shell maybe?) I can use to at least wipe this phone or some other alternate method of getting the screen info viewed so I can perform a wipe? If there is a solution I could implement today, that would be ideal.
Thanks, and let me know if you need any additional info!
