I recently dropped my iPhone 6 and the screen became largely unresponsive and there are gray vertical lines along the bottom of the screen. I tried resetting it restarting it, all that but it hasn't made a difference. I took it to the Apple store, but of course since it had non-Apple parts in it, they refused to do a thing. I was wondering if anyone can identify the problem and let me know how I can go about fixing it myself.
Thanks,
-Matt

Sorry what do you mean by non apple parts?
We have to assume by that, that the OP has had the phone damaged before and repaired by a non-Apple third party which did not use Apple OEM parts. Or the phone was a refurb where non Apple OEM parts were used.

Disassemble your iPhone 6 and check if the flex ribbon connectors are not connected tight to the logic board. If not, I'm afraid you'll have to get a screen replacement.
