Okay, got a headbanger here. I've searched through this forum, on XDA, and on Google, yet have not found a solution to my problem. If I've missed something, I apologize in advance and would be super appreciative to be pointed in the right direction.
Everything on my XT926 works just fine, except the screen. When I first boot the phone, the screen works for a split second, then stays black the whole time, until the next reboot, where the screen will again work (showing the droid logo), then go blank immediately. This happens upon normal boot, and also when holding down the volume keys while powering up. When the OS loads, the rest of the phone works fine. I can touch the screen and use it, and even the HDMI works and I can see what I'm doing while the phone is on and I'm touching the dead screen.
I was running the 183.46.10 build and had unlocked and rooted the phone using the method here:
After successfully unlocking and rooting the phone, after a few months, I took the phone out of my pocket (no impacts or spills) and the screen was black. Phone was on and working, but the screen was blank. When I powered the phone off and on, I saw the screen work for a split second, then the screen went blank as the phone booted up.
I've tried to factory reset the phone using the HDMI cable plugged into a TV to see what the heck I was doing, but the screen still acts the same. Has anyone seen this before, or can anyone help me with this? Is this a software issue since the screen works briefly upon startup? Please help!
