Vertical color stripes and black blotches on white screen
I replaced my cracked screen with one from amazon (OEM planet). Prior to replacement the device, other than the cracked screen, was working fine.
After replacement I have a white screen with colored vertical lines and three black blotches at the top of screen. I did a reset a number of times and then a restore in itunes but still got the same screen. Itunes recognizes the device so logic board seems intact.
I rechecked the two connections and the copper shields and they appear to be attached correctly.
Any thoughts? Is my replacement screen defective or do I have a more serious problem?
You always want to test the screen before hand that way you know if it came lIke that or not. Unfourtanatly it's kinda hard to test the 4th gen digitizer, but you can always check the LCD pretty easily. Just make sure the cables are connected and then turn it on before putting it all the way together.
