Flickering screen after a drop...

I've got a friend who dropped her S7 edge. The glass hasn't broken, but the screen flickers/flashes, to the point where it's hard to look at and almost impossible to use. Given the cost of new LCD units, replacing that isn't looking a likely option. I've taken the back off and disconnected everything in the (admittedly very slim) hope that it could have been a slight loose connection from the drop. When I connected everything back up and turned it on it was still flickering to start with, but after a while it returned to normal. This lasted about 20mins before the flickering started again.

I'm guessing the display was damaged when she dropped it and it's not repairable, but thought I'd ask here if anyone has any ideas what might be wrong, and if it can be fixed, before she goes shopping for a new phone??

Thank you in advance.

I had this problem too, but with a Nexus 7. So far it has just had a jumpy screen and random colors. If anyone that reads this knows what's wrong, Plz say so.

Here's a similar case with the same model: https://forums.androidcentral.com/ask-qu...

From a moderator:

"Try a hard reset. Hold the power button and volume down button until you see the Samsung logo and then let go. Hopefully that will help. If it doesn't I would think then that you have done internal damage."

May the odds be ever in your display's favor.

Not guaranteed as it is a case by case assessment but a temporary fix with a strike rate of 4 out of 5 edge screens I have come across is to immediately switch of ALL EDGE PANEL LIGHTING AND PANELS. This will also help reduce the stress on a damaged device. Finally, switch off the auto brightness feature and keep the brightness level down to a usable level. Again this is not guaranteed to work but I have had success with this approach as a temporary measure.

This worked on my s8 plus. Not a permanent fix but helps when you don't have plans of replacing a panel yet.

I have an s6 active and I drop my phone, multiple times a day. I have also had a screen flickering problem, only about a half inch on the bottom of my screen flickers, mainly when I use Netflix. Turning down the brightness on my screen makes it stop flickering completely. Hope this helps.

What's the difference between a hard reset & factory reset? Will a hard reset erase everything?

Thank you. It didn't come up with the Samsung logo but it went to a boot menu. I hit the button below the volume and it did something but when phone came back on it still flickers. There are 2 significant nicks in the screen. I was wondering if hot glue or super glue could possibly work since when I cover the nicks with my fingers it somewhat stops the flickering.

A factory reset reboots the entire system. It deletes everything in the system by reformatting the hard drive. Hard reset is a form of factory reset, in that it only reboots the hardware on the phone. A hard reset is used to put as many settings back to their original state as possible.
