iPhone Screen Has Gone Black and Blank But Still Responding – Fix

iPhone Screen Has Gone Black and Blank But Still Responding – Fix

There have been numerous reports of iPhone and iPad screens and displays blacking out or just going blank. While the screen goes black the iPhone is still responding with incoming calls, notification sounds and vibrations. This issue tends to arise when the iPhone is dropped or when is used to tough environments. Thankfully there are some simple fixes you can try that will hopefully resolve these problems.


iPhone Screen Has Gone Black Step 1

If you are ever to run into any glitches or temporary bugs on your iPhone it is always recommended to restart it as you would a computer. iPhones don’t have a dedicated restart button so there is a certain command which is holding the power/lock button + home button together for 10 seconds. This will restart the iPhone back up and sometimes can take up to 1 minute. You will not loose any data, contacts, music when doing the restart. This step is successful across all forms for trouble shooting on the iPhone whether it be for sound, camera, display, reception and so on.


iPhone Screen Has Gone Black Step 2

Another successful step that has helped iPhone users with this problem is reconnecting the display connecter in the iPhone itself. Externally you want to squeeze down on the back of the iPhone in the top 1/4 area where the camera and display connectors are found. Pressing down sometimes reconnects the connector as it may have been dislodged while being dropped. You can repeat this step pressing firmly for 30 seconds at a time.



If any of these steps have helped you please share what you did below as it all helps šŸ˜€
