@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/

''The inside of your phone has colourful lines?.... Its because you damaged your screen at the inside need fixing try finding ones at a low price.I'm not sure

My tablet doesn't have colorful lines but the screen in cracked, do I supposed to take it to a Samsung or a t-mobile store and see if they can fix it? If they can how much it will cost?

by

It probably isn’t the glass or whatever material was used on the outside. It is the thing that even shows the screen (which could be a LCD, AmoLED, and you name it) that is defective.

Katelin Touchet if it has the same symptoms it needs the same fix. Your device most likely need a new display.

If you drop your tablet or phone and have lines down the screen then you need the screen replaced to sort the problem. This is to everyone who has the same issue. Repair prices for Samsung tablets aren’t as expensive as their mobiles so depending on model should be cheap enough. Stay away from network shops. O2, Vodafone etc as they won’t be much use. If you can’t do it yourself find a reputable repair shop in your area to give you a quote. Samsung tablet screen replacement is a piece of cake to be honest. Follow a few repair videos or guides and almost anyone could do it.
