Hi, I searched but could not find an existing thread to match the issue I am experiencing, so it seems it could use its own thread.
Yesterday my Droid's screen went blank and no fiddling could get it out. Even after a battery pull the screen remained blank (the keyboard backlight will turn on when pulled out). The touch screen is still responsive - I was even able to blindly navigate to both my power control panel (making the blank-black screen "brighter") and attach the phone's SD card to my PC. The camera happily takes pictures, so it seems the only real issue is with the display.
Attempts to both boot in safemode and a factory reset failed, because the screen remains blank, but those menus seem to load up based on the vibration of the phone.
The screen remains blank if I try to boot without the SD card or with only wall power.
Another point of intrigue: if anyone calls or sends an SMS the phone restarts itself. Upon restart the green notification light blinks to let me know I missed their call.
If anyone can offer any insight, it would really be appreciated. Thanks.
