iPhone display screen has black and blue lines, not cracked


My iPhone has black and blue vertical lines on the display. The phone still responds to my touch, but I can not see anything but blue and black lines. I restored it on iTunes, I did a hard reset (holding the home and lock button until it turns off and back on), and nothing has worked.

Will I need to get a new screen? The screen is not cracked at all.

vicky how much will it coast

lauren norledge,

lauren norledge, sorry looks like Vicky hasn't been here since Aug 21,2012. The assembly will cost you anywhere between $35 and $100 depending on where you purchase it from.


Try pressing the home and power button at the same time but holding it down until it shows the apple sign. If that doesn't work you can rest your iPhone before sending it back for a replacement. 1- Hold down the home and sleep/wake button at the same time (In order to power off that way) 2- Once you were able to power off, next hold down on the home button and at the same time plug the USB cable into the phone and computer. Keep holding the home button until a message factory settings. It will take a few minutes for it to appear. 3- Once it does click on restore.

Vicky, your front display consist of multiple pieces. In your case the digitizer (glass) is still intact, but your LCD is no longer working. I suggest that you change the display assembly. Here is the guide for it. The assembly is available right here as well as many other places. Hope this helps, good luck.
