Hi just want to check, you mean you have taken a screenshot and view it on another phone or on the same phone?, if you view the screenshot on another phone then it means that your lcd is faulty, provide us more info and maybe we can isolate and narrow dont the issue, hope that help, cheers!!

Update

Hi so based on your answer, it is the lcd that is faulty because when you view it o another phone there is no gray line, hence there is gray lines only on the phone that you are using, changing the lcd should solved the issue

When i view the screenshot on the same phone, Gray lines are there. But nothing on another phone. You say that LCD is faulty but lines are not always at the same place.

Thank you

The LCD could be a cheap £5.00 replacement part bought off eBay. These displays do work but can have faults, like uneven lighting around the screen and dead pixels. The display could be a cheap one.
