@Taylor, same answer as above but you do want to make sure that all the cables are properly seated.

My Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 fell from it's "safe" place and landed face down on the floor. It is carpeted but it is a commercial type of office carpet, so even though it isn't concrete, it was still a great impact. Just as I had feared, the display was ruined. It now has a serious vertical scroll with a split screen and colorful pinstripe lines across the top half of the screen. The tablet itself is still working fine, and I can tell by what I am able to see that the colors are just fine. I'm thinking about changing the screen to see if that fixes it. I can get a replacement screen for about $20 and it might take an hour to do the job. I think it's worth a gamble if it could potentially save me from having to fork out about $200 for a new one.

Nesia, it would be easier if you would post an image with your question. Right now, from what you describe, it sounds like you have a broken LCD. It will cause the symptoms you describe. Check this teardown and see if you are up to replacing it. Hope this helps, good luck/
