I've had my droid x for a little over a year. It's rooted with liberty 3 installed. Last night my phone was charging when i disconnected it and went to work. After about an hour I took it out and noticed that the screen wouldn't turn on. So I pulled the battery but it didn't help. Screen doesnt turn on at all, neither do button lights. It's completely unresponsive. No backlight, no other lights, nothing.
Tried different batteries, tried with charger plugged in. Nothing worked. Phone never had water on it.

Try pulling the battery and plugging it into a wall outlet. It should boot up to a battery icon with a question mark inside, once it gets to that point, put the battery back in.

The phone needs to be charged at least 5% or so before it'll boot up.

My phone doesnt even get that far. It just stays a black screen, with no led light

This sounds like a hardware problem to me...sounds like a dead backlight.

That's deff a hardware problem I have heard or a dead backlight causing the phone not to bootup sorry man but I'm at a loss of words because it going to be hard trying to find the problem without the phone not booting at all

Any chance of selling it? I need one for parts. Also the way I check if its a blown backlight I shine a bright small flashlight directly into the screen. You should be able to faintly see an image, if not you have other issues.
