    While "trying out" various photos to use as startup wallpaper on my iPhone 5, suddenly the screen displayed black when showing the startup wallpaper, and continued to do so, regardless of my attempts to reset the wallpaper display to a photo which I had used successfully previously.

    What happens when you restart the iPhone?

    The blank screen was still there. Then about 10 minutes ago the problem just went away. Sorry to have troubled you and thanks for your interest.
