I replaced a broken screen on a Blackberry Bold 9780. Now it just displays a screen that looks like TV static.

Hi Matthew

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Hello. I replaced a 002/111 screen on a Blackberry Bold 9780. I received the screen from an ebay vendor. It is a 3rd party screen.

The previous screen cracked so that none of the screen is visible. When I put the new screen in I get nothing but colored snow like a TV that is on a channel with no signal. I can connect the phone to the computer and backup files. I just can't tell if the screen issue is a faulty screen, a driver issue, or bad phone hardware.

Ok, this is a screen issue.

It may just be that it is not correctly attached. Try detaching the tiny ribbon connector, then ensure it is lined up correctly and firmly press it into place again. Make sure the phone is powered off when doing this.

Then test the display again.

If it still won't work then the display is faulty.
