    Hey all.

    My HTC windows 8x phone turns on, but the screen remains black like it is off. Is there anyway I can fix this or am I going to have to bring it in?

    Did you "soft" reset the phone?

    Yes, I have it connected to my computer as well and it seems to recognize something is there, but since there is a black screen I can't see what my phone is doing.

    Update: My phone seems to be running fine, and my computer recognizes the device. I just can't see anything on my screen like it is off still. Not really sure what to do. Can anyone help?

    If soft reset didn't work, your last resort might be a hard reset!

    I also have a HTC 8X (tmobile) with no screen image. If I press just right on the back lower corner it will come on, but it makes operating it a 3 handed ordeal. Something about a monkey and a football...Did the soft reset, hard reset...seems like some sort of short circuit. I heated for a while with a hair dryer ( like you would to remove the back ), hoping to re- glue some loose part inside. worked a little, but didn't last. Contacted HTC via chat, and I'm about 6 weeks past warranty. I can probably get the same phone second hand for what it costs to repair... Trying to decide on my next windows phone but don't like the idea of spending $600. Loving the new icon but tmobile offers few choices
