    Hi All,
    I was having some issues with my GPS so followed another thread about opening the phone and looking at the GPS contacts. I didn't notice anything too out of place - I pressed on them with the battery out to see if they were noticeably flattened but didn't do anything else. Put the phone back together and now even though the blue light will come on (and the back and menu button light up) the phone screen never turns on. Could there be something I accidentally loosened that would make this happen? Any thoughts on what to check? Thanks

    Not sure multiple postings will get you an answer faster. Hopefully someone will respond.

    Please don't post duplicate questions.

    Didn't mean to post it in the general category, meant to post it in note 3 specific forums. Couldn't figure out how to delete the original. Thanks for the help.

    In case anyone else ends up here with similar issue: it was a loose ribbon cable in upper right hand corner that had become undone when I took the back cover off, I think. Anyway, after pushing it back in all is well. Thanks!
