Question about Apple Iphone 4g Cdma 16gb Verizon

2 Answers

Cracked Iphone 4 screen with distorted messed up colors.

Two days ago I dropped my iPhone 4 from probably about 4 feet. The front screen is just about completely shattered. However when I picked it up and tried to use it my colors were distorted. It looks as though the colors are stuck on the invert mode even though I have checked it and the inverted mode is turned off. My reds appear as bright blues, my greens appear as purples, and my purples appear as greens, and my blues have an odd orange tint to them. Also when i start the phone a huge red square covers the screen until I double tap my lock button, then my screen appears normal for the most part besides my colors being distorted. Also i have a light multi colored strip that appears on my lower left portion of my screen.Also the lower half of my screen is darker then the top half and there is a horizontal thin gray flickering line going across the center of my screen. I am giving my phone to a friend and he is going to put on new glass later this week. Basically what I'm wondering is will the new front glass fix my colors and display, and is there a possible quick fix that i could do to fix the colors to make it more bearable for the remainder of the week. I don't know if I got the exact version of my iPhone right but it is a black 16 gigabyte iPhone 4 from Verizon. Sorry about my grammar and spelling, and for probably putting in to much information i just wanted to be thorough, thanks in advance for the help.

Hi Connor,
Since the iphone is dropped from 4 feet, there would have been a physical damage to the display. If the phone is still under warranty or Apple care protection, you could take the iphone to Verizon store and replace the internal display. If the iphone is out of warranty, they might charge you for replacing the display for the phone. :-)

If that doesn't fix it, there might be a problem with your Lcd, it seems to me that it should be replaced. you can venture out and do it yourself.
if you look for guides online for a screen replacement you will find something. I work for company that does iPHone repair in NYC and we do this repair frequently.

The best thing you can do with a Mac that is having "trouble" is to do an archive and install, one of the install options on the Mac OS X DVD. The instructions and more information are in the following AppleCare tech note. If you have any further questions, please feel free to write back.

· If I understand the issue, it sounds like the monitor screen is going out.

· But there are a couple of things to try since being close to a high voltage source or incorrect Resolution setting could cause something close to that.


· Let us start with the Display resolution since it is the easiest.

· Hold down on the Apple in the upper left-hand corner of your screen.

· 1. Select System Preferences

· 2. Click on the Displays icon

· 3. In the box under Resolutions make sure a resolution selected has 60 Hz if you are running a Flat Screen (LCD) Monitor.

· If that is not the issue, try moving the Mac to a different location. (Next room)

· If that does not work, try booting the machine for the install disk, if it looks fine when running from the disk you could have a corrupt driver. In that case reinstalling the OS should fix it.


· Ok none of that works: Take the machine to your local Apple store for the Genius to look at. He should be able to tell by looking at it what is up.

· Best of luck.

Hi Rachel,

In order to sync your Notes between your Apple devices, please use the following steps:

  • Go to your iCloud settings and sign up for an email address.
  • Once you have an email address, write a note in the Notes app on your iPhone.
  • Go to the iCloud website and open up the "Mail" application
  • Underneath all of your email folders (Inbox, Sent, etc.) there should be a folder called "Notes"
  • Open that folder and read your note!

How to fix a i phone 4

Hello Anonymous
This would probably be a good opportunity to take the iPhone4 into an Apple Centre and pick up a cheap upgrade to an iPhone4S at least. (faster processor & better camera). Your phone is getting outdated and Apple offers a relatively cheap way to get to a better model. But.... if you thing your savvy enough to attempt replacing the LCD unit, here are the instructions. Just remember... you can't take it in to Apple if your attempt fails.
Replacing the display assembly will give you a new front glass panel, digitizer, and LCD. The LCD is adhered to the glass at the factory and the two parts are not separable without damage.

What does it mean when your iphone 4 wont turn on but the LCD is fine?Just look at the details below

Hi there,
where did the phone land - (eg top left corner - front)?
Is there damage to the chassis of the phone?
If there's a crack in the screen and a little moisture got in there would be problems, also if the contacts to the display are damaged this could do something similar to what you are describing.
I have seen iPhones and iPads still working with very broken screens, but I guess the damage was to the outer screen cover only.

I dropped my iPhone and the screen is shattered. I don't want to pay for another phone. What should I do? The screen is cracked only at the top so it is still usable, although I'd rather have it fixed.

somebody has to open the iPhone and replace the part. The cheapest way is to do it your self and you should get aways with around $70. The part is available on ebay. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPhone Screen Repair Services. To try to do it yourself, here's a iPhone Repair guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. As you can see from the guide, this is not quite that easy. Maybe a tech savvy friend can do it for you.

No, it's not the end but you will most likely need to take it in to a Authorized Repair Center so they can repair the broken, cracked screen and any internal damage since obviously water or moisture getting inside is an issue.

I have 3 grey lines on my screen. It started off as 1. What to do

If there's no external damage on the screen then it must be inside. According to some people that have shared the same experience, lines go smaller at warm to hot temperatures and may fade whereas if it were cold, lines grow big. Although, in most cases it will remain there unless you replace the screen or solve the problem. iPhones have a sensitive screen which generally isn't shock proof if you drop it with or without a case covering it. Prices to fix your iPhone vary but are really expensive.
