Screen half white!

I dropped my I phone 4 and the screen is half white with the other half distorted. Sometimes the white goes away and the screen switches to a full negative type of colour, but everything is viewable. If I replace the LCD/Digitizer should this fix it or is it something else? Thanks

It's very unlikely any damage was done to the logic board when it was dropped but there is a small possibility.

You're more then likely safe with just a new LCD/Digitizer assembly.

The first step would be to replace the LCD assembly. With the iPhone 4, the digitizer glass and LCD are inseparable so if you see any online that are not already assembled, stay away.

It is very unlikely that you damaged the logic board with one drop.
