Lines across bottom of screen

I have 2-3 thin lines across the bottom of my 1st generation iPhone. It does not prevent me from moving the lock screen button and getting on to the main screen, but I would like the phone to be in perfect condition. Can you tell me what part needs to be replaced and how difficult a job it is to do??

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Original iPhone front screen replacement is among the most difficult iPhone repairs there is. Watch a few youtube videos to see the process. Unless you have extreme skill, you will not even be able to open this iPhone without permanent damage to the iPhone case. In the future, if the battery eventually fails, battery replacement is much easier, but again, a very difficult process. The Original iPhone is not a repair friendly iPhone.

I assume it is CHEAPER if you buy a used NEWER iPhone for less than 100 € than trying to replace the display !

I have the same problem since several years, and have upgraded first to 3g and now a 4s model in the meantime
