Those are pressure marks. That means something isn't sitting right underneath the screen and it applies pressure against the LCD when you press.

Go back through the battery replacement guide and check to make sure everything is in place. If you removed anything else to get at the battery (i.e. the Dock), then check that as well.

yes According to my experience Those are pressure marks. the battery isn't sitting right.


Nice! thanks so much. It was how I installed the new adhesive tape, the tab was stuck to the front side of the battery and must have made contact with the LCD back plate.


My pleasure!
