Well it is booted up now. But the screen still goes blank after a few seconds with the back light still on. I can push the power button and make the display turn completely off, I can then swipe to wake it up and I'm back to my home screen. It the blanks out again after a few seconds. I also notice a plug icon on the battery. It is plugged in by the way.

"......

I can push the power button and make the display turn completely off,  That's just standby

I can then swipe to wake it up and I'm back to my home screen. That's normal wakeup

It the blanks out again after a few seconds. That's bad

I also notice a plug icon on the battery. It is plugged in by the way. That's good. 

 

The bads bits suggest some sort of loss of screen connectivity. 

 

It's busted. Though I should suggest a Security Wipe to reload the OS if you haven't already done it. (Settings, Security, Security wipe)

The strange thing is that it isn't always a few seconds... I've used it for up to 30 minutes before it blanks out... just not recently... I was wondering if it was some sort of power issue... guess I'm just grasping at straws... lol

I just wiped and reloaded the OS seems like the longer its on the charger the longer the screen stays on... might just be my imagination... lol
