So my grandparents got a tv with a dock that supports iPhones and i put my iPhone in and was playing around with it a bit but when I took it out the backlight was out and restarting it would not help is there anyway that I can fix this without sending it to Apple or opening it myself?

try pressing the home and lock buttons for 8-10 seconds until it turns in.

Go into settings, general, reset and reset all settings to factory. if that doesn't work, try a restore, and after that if it's still not working, contact Apple.

No problem man. I know how bad it sucks when you think your phone is dying. I also know how bad it sucks when your phone is really dead.

try a reset first, then a restore. If neither work, THEN you probably need a new screen.
