Why are there colorful lines on my screen?

I accidentally slammed my phone on a wood table because I was mad at my parents (bratty Ik) and now when my screen is dark there are colorful (greenish) lines going up and down my screen.. any tips? I have already tried hitting the back again and resetting it... and I can’t go to an Apple store because the nearest one is 2 hours away

Alison Gates considering what happened to the phone and that you now have "colorful (greenish) lines going up and down my screen" leads me to believe that you have broken display assembly. There is no fixing it, only a replacing. Here is the guide for it iPhone 7 Plus Screen Replacement and the part is available at places like this iPhone 7 Plus Screen

To verify that it is the display, post some pictures of what your screen shows with your question. That way we can see what you see. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question for that.

Well Alison, this might be because the pressure of the slam could have affected the layers inside of the phone. One of the layers consists of the things that keep the screen glowing. you could have permanently broken the phone. But don’t worry. The 2 hour drive to the apple store is worth it because they know how to fix it. So do I. I’m not sure if I could tell you because I don’t want you risking permanently destroying your phone..
