    So basically my iPhone's lcd is broken so it's just a black screen that's lit up. I was connecting it to iTunes but it asked me to unlock the iPhone(opening it with the pass code). I know the pass code but how do I enter it in the iPhone when my touch screen doesn't work?

    Are you sure the touch screen is not working? Or can you just not see it

    Does the sound work? What iOS version are you on?

    The charging noise hasn't changed. Anyway, try pressing the home button and tapping on the screen. If you have iOS 10, it will start making clicking noises. Also, why are you trying to connect it to iTunes?

    I want to back up the device.
    And btw I don't here any clicking noises but that might be because of broken lcd?
