    Ive made sure the two screens are connected correctly. Ive just taken it apart again and put it back together, (about 10 times now) I can received a call but cant see anything on the screen as its just black. The camera doesnt turn on either. The phone is unusable if i cant see the screen. The mini screen lights up white. Could i of possibly damaged something ? Im lost!!

    Ive cleaned all connections, made sure all belts are connected but still no screen. If i touch the screen while its on gently, there is a light where it is pressed, which would suggest to me that there is power getting to it?

    The mini screen lights up when turned on and when phone is opened, but there is nothing on the mini screen.

    What else can i do?

    Thankyou so far for all your help.

    Could i possibly need a new flex cable to join the top to the bottom? Possibly could of damaged it? Or would it be something totally different? Ive now broken the new cover i bought for it as ive had to take it apart so many times!!!

Nokia 6131, front/internal screen light up but don't display

Your display circuit is broken, even if the LCD-panel,
seems to be ok the display is damaged.
This is a very common problem in Nokia phones.
The only way to fix this is to change the display.
You need a T-6 Torx Skrewdriver to do the job.
