Well I traded the phone with someone else because they didn't want to send it in and pay to have it repaired. I thought I was going to have to replace the LCD which would have cost me around $150 for the part and tools were around $35
I found this website that I have used plenty of times in the past. I used the teardown page for my device. As I tore it down to the bear minimum. I noticed that the ribbon cable had broke right at the light for the LCD. Because I tore it down I saved around $50 All I had to do was order a new ribbon cable.
It is not necessary to take the keyboard off to rplace the lcd or digitizer. If you remove the keyboard, then you have to get more adhesive to put it back on.
