Hi Everyone,

A colleague of mine brought in his iphone 3g it has a completely white screen with a vertical green line down the left hand side.

I purchased a new LCD from flea bay and fitted it; however I never checked it and I don't know if there has been a crack in the bottom left before or after install, I have included an image below.

The question I have is would a crack on the LCD cause the screen to be that white with lines all over? If so then I will simply order another from flea bay and check to make sure this time it is ok before fitting.




Thanks in advance for any replies.

LCD's are a matrix of interconnected pixels. When you damage one section you damage just about the entire thing, unfortunately.

Sometimes you get lucky and you will just damage a small portion of the screen but the majority of the time you destroy the whole thing

thanks chaps,

I have a new screen awaiting to be fitted in to the 3g, so hopefully this time I will be luckier.
