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!

Even though my phone was still under warranty and I believe this was a warranty issue, Samsung made me pay for a new screen, which cost me £208.

I was not best pleased, but they gave me no choice other than to pay for a new screen. 😞 

The phone has been OK since, but I think this is an issue that appears over time.

Samsung blamed me for running the screen too brightly over time?

I had the same problem. My phone was under warranty, so I sent it to be repaired. They fixed the problem. 12 months later the problem came back, but this time I'm out of warranty. So I'm trying to fix it again

Hi I have the same thing on my phone. In my case it is caused by amoled burn-in. I watch a lot of youtube not in full screen so the video is occupying the top third of the screen and I can see the chat on the bottom 2-thirds which has a white background. This white background has caused burn-in so the bottom 2-thirds now has a slight pink colour the same as you are having.

I used to have this problem. One way to stop this is to turn on dark mode in the youtube settings. The top 1/3 of my screen has actually gone back to normal after a few months of dark mode!
