How do I fix Horizontal lines on my screen?

My phone is showing thin black horizontal lines on the screen, so it looks a bit like the screen of 1980s television. It covers the entire phone, and it happened a few days after the screen protector on the top right corner of the phone cracked. Otherwise, the phone still looks fine. It wasn't that bad at first, the screen just looked like the display was only showing every other line, but when i accidentally put pressure on the top right corner of the phone (where the screen protector cracked), it got worse and started looking like how I explained it above.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Usually it's the LCD. After a drop it can happen and the LCD will have to be replaced.

I see the entire grid beneath the screen of my mobile, a Galaxy 6 or 7. The keyboard is faintly visible beneath photos and the upper half is discolored beneath the screen. My son suggested that the screen has been "burned" from som improper usage. Can a screen be replaced or is the problem with the grid itself?

Reset the Wallpaper. Go to Settings. Click Display. Click Wallpapers. Click on Home Wallpapers. If you have your owm from your gallery, click on Gallery look for the picture you eant for your phone display and click save. This is how I fixed mine.

Cheers! Lisa.

Just happened to me last night, 3/4 of screen was whitish with verical lines going through, phone hept getting really hot. I tried everything except a factory reset and nothing. Finally I turned my phone off and charged to 100%. Working fine! Had a similar issue with my speaker, screen or speaker wasn't getting the right voltage. Hey give it a shot it's free..I was 5 minutes from buying a $150 replacement

It's normal error of Samsung mobile, just drop the trash phone.

I have the same problem, mine is a new phone (Samsung A12). As soon as it charges up to 100%, the vertical lines appear. They disappear as the battery drains. What do I do?
