I've tried the suggestions so far offered and no luck, the issue is still there.

I'm starting to believe this may be a manufacturing defect in the assembling of the display. The defect looks like the imprint of something, maybe it's a pressure pad mark.


Thats very possible. Be careful of what source you get parts from, they really aren't all the same.

Be sure your LCD cable has not gotten pinched in the place where it goes through the midframe. Otherwise, you may be right about parts quality and need to get a new part.

That looks more like a LCD error. Of course you always want to make sure that all connections are properly seated. If that does not fix it , you can either replace the display or just learn to accept it since it is only really visible in your music app.

I don't see exactly what you're talking about in the picture but it sounds like the lcd connector might not be seated correctly. You don't have to completely disassemble the phone again but take that metal shield off from over the lcd and digitizer connectors and disconnect and reconnect them and see if that fixes your problem. Make sure there is no debris in that connector.
