    Need to Erase Personal Data but LCD is Broken

    Hi

    Does anyone know how to erase personal data and factory reset without being able to see the screen? I know the phone is on because the buttons at the bottom light up but I cannot hear sounds. I now have a replacement phone but need to send the broken one back and don't want to do it without being able to clear my personal information.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sure, check this link:

    You should follow option 2: reset when powered off. It may take a few tries, but I think this is the best option...
