Pictures and colors are strange

Hi. My fiancé and I both have the iPad Air 2. We also have iPhones and luckily his iPhone and iPad are connected. His has cellular. His screen just started looking strange. The colors on everything look so overly saturated, almost cartoon like . I compared the pictures from his phone to make sure it wasn’t just the photos., but they look normal on the iPhone. Does anyone know what this might be ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’ll attach some screen shots. Thank you!

@lwphoto this could be an issue with the LCD or a problem with the LCD data pin connector. Sometimes a GENTLE twisting of the iPad corrects this. If not you will have to open it up and clean the data connector to double check. Let us know what the starting screen looks like when you restart the iPad. The background of the screen where the apple emblem appears can give us an idea.

@lwphoto looks like you twisted it a bit to much. You will now need a new LCD. Since this happened based on my advice, please contact me via email (it's in my profile)so I can fix this for you.
