Cell Phone LCD Screens for iPhone 4s

If you have an accident and drop your iPhone 4s, it is possible that you may need a new LCD screen display for it. Sometimes the screen may just go black for seemingly no reason. Whatever the scenario you're facing, when you need a new screen, it is possible to replace the screen with one of the available LCD screens for iPhone 4s.

What do you do when your iPhone LCD goes black?

If your screen just goes black, the problem may not be the screen. Before deciding to replace the screen, there are a few things to try in order to return your iPhone 4s back to working order. One possible scenario is that your iPhone battery is dead. Plug it in, and if an empty battery pops up on screen, you should give it some time to charge up before you turn it back on. In the case of a crashed app, simply force it to close and relaunch it. Updating the iOS version may also fix the problem if it stems from a bug afflicting the existing version of the operating system. If none of these work, then it may be time to replace the screen.
