Thread: What's wrong with my dad's iPhone 2G screen?

    Default What's wrong with my dad's iPhone 2G screen?
    Hey all,
    What's wrong with my dad's iPhone 2G screen? There are several horizontal lines on the screen, one stretching all the way across.

    A picture of the screen is attached.

    Does the LCD need a replacement? If so, is this the part to go for - Original Apple iPhone 2G LCD SCREEN Display + Tools - eBay (item 260635262183 end time Aug-13-10 02:27:41 PDT)?

    Thanks in advance!
    Cheers
    Sibot

    Then I would try using the pixel fix tool. If they are not black then it means the pixels are just stuck. Just follow this link and use this to fix the stuck pixels. Fixing iPhone Stuck Pixels | Knoxing | iPhone Templates, Mobile App Development and SEO in Denver
    Let me know if it worked, and if this helped you at all, click the thanks button! Good luck!

    Awesome, that's a great find!

    I'll surely try it out. But somehow the line was short earlier and the next day it spread across the screen. I'll try this tool out nonetheless and post back.

    Cheers.

    That didn't really work, I doubt if they're dead pixels.

    I think its some physical problem, its hard to put my finger on what could be wrong and what needs to be replaced.

    Any help? I want to get it fixed asap.

    If you apply pressure to the screen with your finger and the lines change then ya the LCD screen probably needs to be replaced.. It's probably one of the easier parts to replace on the iPhone
