Screen Display is Shaky and Duplicated

I recently replaced my screen on Tuesday, it worked fine until yesterday, about fifty hours after being replaced. I had also used someone else's charger yesterday. (Some things I read about similar problems mentioned the charger)

Yesterday, my screen display started shaking at the bottom. Then the top of the display started coming up at the bottom. And then later you could see about half of the top of the screen at the bottom. And later the screen is duplicated so much that I can't make out the display at all.

The touch screen still works, if I can figure out where I'm suppose to touch to do what I want.

I restored my iphone and nothing changed, so I turned it off and let it charge over night. Nothing changed. So I'm trying to drain the battery and see if that helps. It's been getting worse as I keep using it and keep it on.

Here's a video of it about twenty minutes ago, it's worse now. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fB_GIkcxg... )

Edit; I opened it back up, clean it, and checked the connectors. It still doesn't work. I did find this. ( https://www.flickr.com/photos/sane_insan... ) I don't know what that is or what it connects to, but I don't think it looks like it should.

Edit; I think that's part of the headphone thing and that still works.

Hi Kalina,

That looks like a bad display assembly. I recommend requesting a warranty replacement form whoever you bought it from.

Yes, that seems to be it. I put my old cracked screen back on and it works fine. I'll be requesting a replacement from the company I got the new one from.
