How to fix iPhone screen if it looks like a negative print?

History

My iPhone fell from my hands, and when I picked it up the screen lost the real colors, it looks like a negative print photo!!!

What can I do to fix my iPhone??

Edited by: Thomas Soria ( )

I have this problem on a 3g iphone, so its nothing to do with the accessibility function found only on 3gs. If I press top right corner of display image flips upside down. I don't believe water damage is the culprit, any other ideas?

Try clicking the home button 3 times (really fast) if this doesnt fix it, go to settings/general/accessibility/triple click home... and set that to white on black, and the tripple click home.

Experienced same problem on iPhone 3 GS with iOS5 just installed. Triple clicking home button dod not work. Solved problem settings/general/accessibility/ turn off 'white on black' (no idea how it self selected).

IOS 5 working fine, no problem downloading (8 min via my Macbook)) now launch day bottleneck over.

Thank you for the help, i am computer illiterate and i found this to be a fix i even understood. gen/settings/access/ turn off Black/White. i aslo do not know how it selected this mode originally.

Greg Christensen,

Thank you. Went back to the settings, as suggested. I guess I must have accidentally pressed a certain sequence and let the negative image loose! Merci from Montreal.

Sylvie Boulanger,

thank you so much, my mum would've killed me if i didn't fix it, cause it was hers not mine! thank you!

grace,

Thank you Worked easily !

reust1,

Great: also on a 4G three times home made it all positive again. I wasted more than an hour trying to find a menu option to do the same, I google 10 seconds and have solved the problem!

Don't bang on anything. Go to setting on main screen. Click on General, scroll down to Accessibility, click. On the next screen make sure invert colors is turned (OFF) This is for the Apple 4S Iphone

Wow this worked! Thanks! Now what caused the screen to turn negative. I did not drop it or anything. I had it in my pocket and when I pulled it out, it had the negative screen.

Apple I-phone 5 S

I just down loaded the newest version of I-OS7. Phone screen went to inverted colors or looked like it was a negative. The first fix of tapping the Home screen three times did not work. I then went to 'Settings', then 'General', then 'Accessibility'. Once there there is a heading labeled vision. Look in that column for the Invert colors button. Its probably turned on. Tap it to turn it back to normal.
