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.

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.

My friend's phone (core prime) shattered the other day, and no lines or problems. just cracks. 2 days later, the LCD screwed up out of nowhere. I don't understand. Any solutions? I plan to fix it anyway, but is there any easier way TO fix it, or should i just fix it from scratch?

we can't see it because the lines are internal and not on your actual screen.
