Part of screen has a red tint, galaxy s8




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!





This is exactly what is happening to my s8! Exactly how you described it! Samsung needs to fix our phones for free!


Exactly, I am also getting this problem.


Yes, Samsung has to fix this problem free of cost. 


otherwise, it is better to move to the iPhone.


I do not know why Samsung doing this, as I know that Samsung is the company who makes the screen and other components for the iPhone. 


it was completly fixed by replacing the screen parts.


No other issue came back

Hi, I have a Samsung Galaxy S8+. A rectangle part of the screen ( about 70%) has a reddish tint. This $840 phone is 1 year and 1 month old. Is there a Samsung recall? I read a lot about a red tint problem on these phones. This is unbelievable and maybe a class action lawsuit should be in order. Any thoughts?

I too have the same problem AS WELL as having to shake my phone EVERY TIME I want to take a photo, otherwise the picture is blurred.

Remind me again why Samsung is the No 1 seller?

I took the plunge and brought my S9 to the service center on its last month of warranty.

The problem is resolved now because they gave me a new screen. And because the battery is attached to the screen (for space-saving in phone design ???), apparently they gave me a new battery too! So it's like giving my phone a new lease of life!

Process took less than 2 hours from drop in to collection. Phone did need to be factory-reset, and Samsung's Smart Switch is bad at keeping apps and settings, so restoring the phone back to a state I was happy with took some time 😕


Thanks to Samsung coming clean on the issue. Had to send the phone to their Texas center and it was repaired free of charge. Hence, cudos to Samsung

Apparently we all watch too much utube... and burnt the screen and it needs to be replaced no other options, I will live with it for now. On the plus side if your phone is still under warranty it will be free to fix but without your phone for 2 weeks....


They gave you a new phone based on your warranty?
