Hello all,

I own a Google Nexus 5 and a BlackBerry. I switched the sim card of the BlackBerry to the Nexus and all of a suddenly the Nexus gave a black screen. If I press the power button the phone vibrates but that's it. No android logo or anything. It just vibrates. If I put it in the charger there is still no battery logo/icon. And last, if I press the volume down button + the power button it vibrates but still no bootloader or something like that. I even tried to get it back to stock rom 4.4 and 5.0. My windows PC recognizes the phone and the phone does everything, but the screen is just black. I had it rooted and running on android 5.0 lollipop. Could anybody please help me? I've searched the forums and on the internet but there wasn't anybody who experienced the same as I did.

When i just tried to turn it on, it even responds to touches on the screen. I hear sounds when i press on the screen and it dials a number i guess..

Assuming the phone didn't get wet, there could be a number of things causing those symptoms. Only putting it on a repair bench and testing it will tell you what it is.
