    Hi Guys,

    Not been on here in a while anyway today I decided to dismantle by phone to replace the Lock Button Cable and the Lock button would not work. I got it all fixed went to switch the phone and the screen comes out but with random lines of colours going vertically down the screen. I phoned my phone and it rings and everything I can even swipe to answer the call. I think i may have damaged the ribbon when taking it apart ?.Do you think replacing the LCD screen will fix the problem ?

    Many Thanks
    Jonathan

    It's almost definitely an LCD issue if everything still works. I would check the cables that connect the LCD to the board and make sure one of them didn't just get pinched somewhere. That could save you from having to buy a new panel.
