Near the joint of the phone, on the inside, there is a tiny hole that hides the switch for the inner's location is indicated by the small nipple on the upper-half of the phone, again near the joint/hinge.

This correlation between the nipple and small hole acts as the auto-off switch for the inner screen when you close the phone.
Inside the hole is a thin plastic membrane with a flexible copper contact underneath called a contact switch, and nicknamed a bubble switch for the general appearance (the shape is similar to a small bead of water on a waxed car).

Normally convex shaped, these contacts can be pressed (deformed) into a concave, which means that, as a switch, it is still making contact as if the phone is closed.
This happens often when the closed phone is pressed hard, and some never realize that they did it (sat on it, etc.) until the screen is blank.

There are 2 ways to pop the switch back out; The first is the proper way, by opening the case and accessing the circuit board...but the other way is the first-try method that you as a user can do easily before seeking a service center:
Using a non-sharp piece of wire or stiff plastic (a ball-point pen if it will fit, and if it won't a bread wire-tie folded tightly in half, or a straw from a broom, etc.), poke gently into the hole and run the point around in a circular pattern to cause the deflated bubble to pop out.
The screen will/should flicker while you're doing this...and will come on when you got it.

    Where exactly is this hole. I can't seem to find it. Right side or left? More precise location is needed.

Are there any cracks on the screen, you may want to check the darkened corners. If there are then that is why, other than that it may be a software issue. Just let me know if that is the issue if not I'll try to help you further.

T-Mobil My Touch cell phone touch screen randomly will not work. Sometimes brings up screens without touching screen?

My son's had dropped his t-mobile so many times it did the same thing. I was able to order the touch screen from amazon for $18 then I looked up on YouTube how to replace the screen and it was very easy to replace by watching the video. I think this is the cheapest fix for your problem.

The light on my ipod touch dose not turn on?

hold the sleep button for about 5-6 seconds and restart it. Try that a few times, and then if that does not work, connect it to the computer and hit the 'restore' button and see if it will restore the light. Try to charge it also, sometimes that will help.

LG Envy inside screen no longer works, did not drop or get wet, was using it fine then all of a sudden I opened it to text only to find a black screen, buttons still light up, but no display!

there is a small very delicate ribbon cable that connects the screen to the circuit board that has probally broken. it is a common problem on phones that flip like yours does.
