    Earlier today my phone fell onto a carpet - and when I went to check the phone, it was still on, but the screen was completely black even if I hit the power button. The screen occasionally flashed, as if the backlight was trying to turn on, but only for a second.

    Even I boot, the screen is black BUT the backlight is on then. There is NO boot logo. There is no bootloader even if I hold X.

    It's just a black screen.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Any results?

    The same thing recently happened to my phone, I dropped it and it stopped working. I've been looking to see what might be the cause. The thing is I knew it was eventually going to happen, since my screen has slowly stopped displaying things (sometimes I had to slide my keyboard to get it to reconnect and I was getting diagonal lines on my screen).

    I'm planning to take apart my phone and check the connection, since I think this is a display connection to motherboard issue. If not I would have to replace the LCD, which is a lot of work and the part itself is $30 in ebay.

    I was just wondering if you know the problem or if I have to get a new phone

    It's possible that you only knocked a connector loose but the only way to find out is to get in there. Otherwise it's likely the LCD has been damaged.

    Both of you, let us know how it goes if you try to re-connect the LCD.
