    Damaged San francisco

    I have damaged my phone, The phone is still on and can see all the buttons still work including touch screen. but the screen is nearly completely black. im assuming its been done by pressure on the phone but there are no cracks or other sign of damage.

    I bought from argos but can't find the reciept. what can i do?

    All the screen is black except a tiny bit in the corner, where i can see it changing if press buttons.

    Sounds like the membrane between the layers has broken.

    Even if you could find the reciept it wouldn't be covered by the guarantee. I remember reading that there are replacement screen on Ebay, but no idea how easy they are to fit.

    sell on ebay as faulty

    It may be more expensive to repair, than to replace...

    My girlfriend shut her AMOLED San Francisco in the car door. Smashing the screen.

    Any idea how to do a wipe so it can be sold as faulty on eBay, as it's still got all her account setting in it and you can't see anything to wipe it.

    You said it at the start, YOU damaged the phone so even if you can find the receipt it wont be covered under warranty, you need to:
    - claim through insurance (if you have any)
    - Replace the screen/get it repaired
    or - Buy another one.

    yer cos i didnt think someone would have a go, it doesnt matter if i was partly to blame as as long as it happened during normal use. so its not that simple but not really after going it to blame, just wanting to know my options which i now know
