I sort of have this same kind of problem. Say for instance I'm watching youtube or Netflix then sometimes, and it always happens while streaming, my screen will freeze then turn green. I also have a problem where my phone will restart all by itself. I have a galaxy s3 version 4.4.2. I'd rather not have to get a new smartphone, since this is my first one ever and I don't have the money for a new one anyway, so I'd like it to last as long as possible.

Casey does your phone do this on a regular basis? Does the screen turn green under normal use like when making phone calls or texting ,playing, games or is it only when streaming . When the phone shuts down is the phone warm to the touch?

Hi JuanMiguel Gealogo,

My friend unfortunately I have bad news for you, while your display still works it is permanently damaged. There is no fixing this issue, there is only replacing the screen with a new one.

What has happened is the display has been damaged below the first layer of glass, you cannot see the damage because the front glass is covering it, by removing the front glass you will be able to see the damage.

It must be a minor crack in your LED, small enough to only distort the display and not make it go out completely.

But its only a mater of time before the device gets bumped to hard or dropped and it will finish the small crack and make the display stop working completely.

Its time for a new screen.

Hope this helps get you going in the right direction.

Though the LCD isn't broken on your device, it looks like it is defective, if you have experience taking the S3 apart, and access to an additional S3, you could simply switch motherboards to test it. Honestly, it would be best for you if it is the screen, because the only other possibility is that your main logic board is having issues, which isn't good at all, in that case you would have to get a new phone all together.

The only way is DO AS I SAID BELOW SUCCESSFULLY WORKED.

1. Turn off the phone and make sure your sim card and memory card should be removed if you have.

2. Be ready with your toothpaste and a wet cloth and a dry cloth.

3. Apply toothpaste all over the screen except home button , speaker , Sensor !

4. Dry it for 1 minute.

5. Clean it with your dry cloth first and wait for 1 minute.

6. Clean it with your wet cloth 2 or 4 times.

7. Make it dry immediately with a dry cloth.

6. Once your screen cleaned , factory reset your phone after a 10 minutes.

8. Make sure your screen must be on display for a whole day even charging. If your phone heat , just leave it.

9. Your phone is ready to use and your greenish screen will be reduce as fast as possible.

Are you serious ? ^^

by

Yes. To be very honest i wasn't believe in this way at all.. and i just tried it my screen is now totally clear and out of the problem. Toothpaste is kind a clear to your mobile screen. Just try it. at least you have continuous try for a couple of days.

by

Would that still work if my phone has already turned from green to black?

by

I'm so sorry. If your screen turned into black means , your inner screen had been effected. you have to replace the a new screen. Green screen just caused by wet and water. Black screen is totally out. Would you please explain me how your screen is playing until now ?

by

It doesn't work stop fooling others.
