Screen issues- flickering and strange colors


So I recently got this iPhone that has some strange problem with the screen, I don't know it's history but someone has opened it up before and I'm not sure if they broke something or if the problem is from the lcd because it gives horizontal lines and flickers and on some occasions the screen changes to some weird colors but stops flickering or then it simply goes black.

I'm asking here to see if anyone has seen this before and has any suggestions before I waste money on a new lcd.

I added some pictures of the screen.

LCD is definitely junk and needs to be replaced. Luckily lcd screens for these are cheap. Not sure what they are on ifixit, but you can get them for like $20 on ebay. Good luck.

I ordered a lcd screen, hope it solves the problem.


Nice. Good luck to you as the iPhone 4 is kind of a pain to replace the lcd. If I remember right you have to take everything out. Follow the instructions and you will be fine. Good luck.
