The display cable or screen got damaged during the battery replacement.

Possible causes:

  • Screen was folded back and not disconnected during battery replacement
  • Too much tension on the screen cables
  • Damaged screen connector or cables (note that these can still go bad if not handled properly).

As long a the screen connectors are not physically damagerd a replacement screen will fix this.

How would I know if the screen connectors are damaged?


Compare the screen connector with this image:

Usual signs of damage are missing pins, bent plastic. These connectors are fairly durable so vertical lines will indicate the display panel failing or the display cable failing.
