Dropped my phone and has colour lines

Hey,

I dropped my phone and it has a very tiny line close to the centre of the screen a colour pixel, it isn't black or red. It's a bunch of colours and they are clumped together. Is there any fixes I can do at home which might resolve the issue?

Is this a good question?

Nope. I'm afraid you will have to get the screen replaced. These screens are quite expensive so there are a few options:

- Buy a replacement screen and install it yourself

- Call Samsung and ask for a price of a screen replacement for a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

- Take it to a independent third party repair shop for a screen replacement.

Note that these screens are very expensive because all the screens are original from Samsung (and they control the market for Samsung AMOLED screens).

What is this issue called, is there ANY other way because it is covered by warranty but abroad from England. Samsung in England wont cover it.

It's just screen gone bad. Always appears to happen after screen gets cracked or phone dropped.

It's physical damage to screen even if you don't see cracks on screen after drop.

iPhones on the other hand don't get the screen to easily break this way.

Is it a stuck pixel?

No. It's a physically damaged screen...

There is no cheap fix for this problem.
