    He just noticed it and we, my dad, my mom, or myself, don't know how to remove the squares. How can he or I fix it?

    Thank you.

    Not at the moment, but he says that it only happens when he tries to take a picture with his iPhone. I was going to post a picture of his screen taken with <i>my</i> iPhone, but he says he's going to take it to the at&t store (where I assume he bought it, I wasn't with him.)

    it sounds like he has the grid lines turned on for the camera app. Go to settings> photos & camera. down near the bottom , there is the option to turn the grid on/off

    I completely forgot about this option as I never use it.

    I think you've got the answer, here.

    Connector issue

    Do not mean to dig this post up, however I found it today while suffering a similar problem. I figured I would register and tell what I did to resolve it.

    Recieved a 60 dollar replacement screen from Amazon.

    Connected everything up and fired up the phone.

    Noticed white squares lined up across the bottom of the iphone 5c screen.

    Fiddled with the connections for a few mins and noticed the squares lighten but not disappear when messing with the lcd connector.

    All but gave up and decided to attach the metal retaining plate that holds down the connectors.

    After adding what I would call extra torque, "as much as I could without stripping the screw" I noticed the white squares all but gone accept on certain colors. Which instead of being very obvious they are now very very faint.

    Not to leave anything out, I did replace the home button with the factory button, doubt this had anything to do with it thoug as they did not lighten to the point they are now until putting some torque on the retaining plate.

    Keep in mind you MUST keep your screws in order on the retaining plate. They are all slightly different lengths and must be in the right spot to get the proper torque.

    Hope this helps somone with the same problem I had.

    Have a good one,

    Lucid.:)
