Replacement screen having "fogging" issues.

Have replaced multiple screens and every now and then come across this odd effect that's almost fog like. It starts with a thick white color along the border that gets lighter as it works its way into the center, where the image is flawless. Some thoughts of whether they are cheap defective screens, moisture issues, or just maybe something not put together right the first time causing pressure points around the edges. Just curious if anyone has any thoughts on this or have run into this as well.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Bad lcd/digitizers. I have got 4 or 5 of these, all in white in the last 3 months. All with the white cloud effect around the perimeter.

I've replaced dozens of these things, and this is the first one with a cloud around it. Actually, it was fine until I put the customer's lifeproof case on, and then it got the cloud around it... So - let me ask - in your experience - does the supplier generally replace these? I got this part from my365.

Try reconnecting the cables. The life proof may have put dressier on the frame so the cables may have disconnected. Have faith and god bless
