Hello!

 

I had this problem a while already but kinda gave up searching information and trying stuff out.

Contacted someone from samsung on messenger but he didnt know it aswel.

 

So lets try again😁

 

A while ago i was just watching youtube and suddenly youtube crashed and closed.

Since then there has been a part of the screen just normal white and the other part has a red tint. (Look at photo, top part where the video was playing is normal, under its kinda redish.)

 

When i take a screenhot and send it to my laptop or friend its just normal.

So its just my screen.

 

Anyone any idea what this could be?

How can i fix this?

 

-Happy hollidays!

I guess it is the best solution to do the upgrade as long as they dont notice the screen issue.

And didnt want to go through customer service of Samsung because the suck so bad, the simplist issue they take a month.

Same issue here 😞

 

Any update on this problem. Is it confirmed that it is a hardware issue and not software

 

Thanks

I've also noticed my phone doing this recently. I thought it was part of game i regularly play, but started seeing it it on other blank white pages. Looking at it super close - it lines up with the high contrast keyboard I've been using fo

I've also noticed my phone doing this recently. I thought it was part of game i regularly play, but started seeing it everywhere when I paid attention. Looking at it super close - it lines up with Samsung's native high contrast keyboard that I use when texting (I can see the individual keys and the delete button clearly when on a stark white background). Anyone else using the high contrast keyboard? Fortunately, I am up for a new phone soon, but its still highly irritating, considering how much I paid for it.

It was fixed by replacing my screen at the samsung dealer.

This has happened to mine after my son has watched YouTube on my phone . I don't really wanna pay for a screen change but as I can't find any other fix I think I'm going to have to
