ok, so a couple days ago my first original droid running U.D. 2.1 stopped working all of the sudden. it froze so i did a battery pull, and then i turned it back on and the display was just gone. it would turn on and show the backlight but no picture would show at all. no buttons or the touchscreen would work at all, just the notification blinker. so i did some research and discovered this is pretty much unfix-able and so i sent it in for a replacement.
i got my replacement the next day and i went to work to return it to my personal preference. i rooted it, flashed U.D. 2.3, flashed my normal kernel (chevy 1.25 ulv), and did all the other random tweaks, and my phone was running flawlessly.
now, two days later, i pick my phone up off of my nightstand to try and download some music, and the screen is black, my first thought was to charge it. so i put it on the charger and bam, it turns on with a black screen. not even the backlight is showing on this new droid. i can turn the phone on, get to the unlock screen (with no picture), and i can use the slider to unlock it, but still cant see anything. the touchscreen reacts to touch, the four buttons at the bottom work and vibrate when i touch them, and the keyboard lights up.
i did all the research possible and i can not find a fix for this. i am becoming infuriated with this phone. can someone please help me fix this before i shove a soldering iron in my eye?
i was running versions of ultimate droid and chevy ulv kernels both times this hapenned to my phone, does anyone think this could be the case? or is this a manufacturing flaw of the phone.
any feedback is appreciated because i am on the brink of insanity trying to figure this out
Edit: i also went into sprecovery and did a default nandroid restore, and the backup that i restored was done directly after i rooted it the day i got it, with no foreign roms or kernels on it. And the screen is still comepletely black
