    I held down the power and home buttons for a couple of minutes while I was reading something on my laptop, and my iPhone did reboot. I must have held the buttons for at least 5 minutes. Eversince it has worked.

    This is why you let the pro's do it ;)

    Anyway, a white screen usually entails a defect in the actual LCD or corrosion on either the connectors of the LCD or even the connectors on the motherboard. Use an alcohol swab and clean all the connectors (1, 2, 3 and the pins on the mobo), then dry them off very well with a can of air.

    The LCD is the most fragile repair, so you could have possibly damaged the LCD when replacing it. Send me a PM if you need more help with it. I'm an owner of a iPhone repair company.

    so i took your advice and i cleaned the connectors with alchol swap and then stuck them back in their locations turned it on and i get the white screen again.

    Any ideas how i can fix this?

    i know it is still able to be fixed because it still powers on abut is just all white.

    I was thinking maybe i wasn't getting connection 3 all the way in.

    How do you normally go about putting #3 back in place?

    Thanks
    Appreciate your help
