    I have the same problem too but mine went out in my case so i didn't see any lights flashing, however when i get phone calls it rings like normal and vibrates but i can't answer or do anything due to nothing showing up on the screen! no matter what i do i can't get it to work again.

I have a iphone 4s ang i change de lcd screen for a band new because is was cracked and now it does not have the sceen illumination

Check your brightness and try and turn that up. If that does not work then I would check the seller who sold you the screen and see if you could get a different one that was not defected.

The icons and letters on my screen are too large to see the commands keys. how do I make it go back to a normal size font

You must have zoomed-in the screen accidentally. It's easy to zoom-out, just double-tap anywhere on the screen using 3 of your fingers (simultaneously) and everything will go back to normal.

And in case you want to zoom-in again, just do the same thing.
