My Evo's Screen just died.
well have been listening to music on my Evo for about 45 minutes I put the phone down and went to take a shower and now when I try to wake the phone the screen light up but it stays black. I have pulled the battery and even when I just hit to turn on the phone the white EVO screen never comes on instead its just a black screen. I wanted to do a hard reset but cant even do that as no mater what I do the screen is just black, and now the battery is not dead. Well will be hitting up Radio Shack tomorrow for a exchange or return depending if they have any in stock.

From another thread, did you try this?
Take the battery out. Reinstall the battery but don't turn it on. Hold the power button down along with the down volume button for several seconds. The phone will completely reset. Yes you will loose all your installed settings.

- Did you apply a screen protector on it that required a light soap/water mixture?
- Did you have it in the bathroom with you (on the counter of course) when you took your shower?
I ask because the issues of the lack of epoxy on the glass seem to allow even the smallest amount of moisture into the screen area. if it gets in down by the four buttons, the backlight circuit dies and 'bye bye screen'.
