    Two month ago after I got my 3G I dropped it and the screen broke. I got a new one from ebay and replaced it but, forgot to take off the stickers. I opened it up again and one of the cables broke. I went and ordered a new one again and replaced it, but this time my phone won't turn on. I just opened it up again and realized I never connected ribbon #3. Is it because of that or something else that's causing it to not turn on?

    I think my LCD is broken. Cable #3 is for the top speaker and the sensor which turns the screen dark when you call. Should I order a new LCD? But before I do can anyone tell me how to know if it's boken for sure?

    Edit: After leaving the phone plugged in for 30 min it turned on and itunes displayed it. Now my only problem is the screen is completely white and nothing else is on it.
