Screen works, now phone is overheating !!!! It is too hot to touch!
Oy my TB! I am getting grey hairs!
So, I left phone to charge ..just gave up really, waiting for someone to reply to my plea for help. No one did, so I went to try again and YES! It turned on and the screen worked!
New problem, phone is so hot I can barely hold it. I immediately uninstalled several apps, cleaned up caches, killed all programs non essential and phone is still hot. My over heating app has informed me that it is 10 degrees away from being a very dead phone.
What the heck is going on?? Is there anyway to cool it down other then turning it off?:icon_eek:
Screen is black again .. :o( Why do the TB gods hate me??
First of all, thank you very much for responding to my post. I truly do appreciate it.

Phone worked fine, screen worked, all buttons functional, apps running . ...all was well in shedroid's tb world.
Then the phone died, ran out of battery actually because I got caught up cooking. So, I plugged it in and let it fully charge (it was not hot)
Right now, I am looking at the phone reminding me of all bazillion notifications I have but can't see as the screen is black again. :(
My phone is not rooted .. I don't know what to do ? ..
Update on TB drama-still no screen and phone full charge :(
1) Thank you Justin92 for calling in the expert I appreciate it truly ...I am in the middle of nowhere and getting to a verizon store, or any store is difficult.

The only clue that it is working is if the volume is turned up, I can hear messages being delivered, and email which is kind of odd because I have those on manual. Anyway, phone is not hot anymore at all, and it is full charged. No, screen though it is black. The red and green lights work at the top, and the bottom home/menu/backarrow/search buttons do light up when they are supposed to.
Now, there is something I did not mention and it didn't occur to me they might be connected, they might not be but just in case .. about month and half ago I cracked the screen, there was two places in San Antonio that would even touch a TB. I went with the higher priced one, but only because they were a bit on the friendlier side. Paid $100, and when I got phone back I knew something was wrong right away. There was a gap between the screen and the casing. A big gap!! Also, the screen had these lines through it you could see when it was powered down. Not to mention try and text or use the keyboard and you would be tapping any letter five times to get phone to register what the heck you were doing. I made it to my car door, turned around and asked what the heck ..(I was polite) ... he explained that since it is not the same screen Verizon would use I should expect things like that, and the gap was nothing to worry about it happens when you replace screens.
I am an idiot, I believe him ... why would he lie ? .... Two days later the screen does not crack, it shatters! It was in a case in my purse (small purse, no a lot of junk) I pull it out, and go to check weather and ...no more screen. Now he did say there was a 90 day warranty so I took it back and he told me firmly that NO the warranty covered defective equipment but obviously the equipment was fine, it was me that broke the phone. I explained it was in my purse and not moving, and that I thought the gap was the issue .. he said "Oh, well you women have so much stuff jammed in your purses it is easy to mess up your screen. Yes, we can fix it but it is $100" ..
I told him I would see about that ... I NEVER leave bad reviews .. I am super nice, but I sent an email to company expressing my sadness in how I was treated. To my surprise I got an email back, smart me had taken pics the first time I got my phone back and once they saw pics they decided to fix it again for free.
Now this came to mine when I was looking at my phone, there is not a gap like there was before ... not at all. The screen itself though seems a bit "off" ..I don't know how to describe it. I don't think that you should push on the home key and see your screen move in right? Like it is loose or something?
Am I making sense ?
Ok so now
Phone is fully charged-
Phone is NOT hot-
Screen is dark, you can see nothing except when bottom buttons light up-
Now what do I do? I don't even know how to turn it off and on really, I press the power key and if the screen was on I have options for powering off, airplane, and restart, but since I can't see I am having to guess ...
Is there a hard reset button somewhere ?? Or should I even do that ?
