Dead spots after Display Replacement

I successfully replaced my shattered screen with the ifixit kit and instructions and everything works, except I have two racing stripes down the right side of the screen that are touchscreen dead zone. The rest of the touchscreen works great as does the camera, phone, home and power buttons. How do I get rid of the stripes on the screen and the dead zone they create????


Replacement screen just arrived and I replaced. Works perfectly now! Thank you!

Either the digitizer connector isn't properly connected or you need to clean the connectors on the maimboard with some alcohol. If this doesn't work then your screen is faulty, get it replaced by the seller. Ive had this more than once happen to me and its usually a faulty screen.
