If sounds like the display has actually gone bad. Otherwise, it could also just the LCD lighting that has gone out. The digitizer sounds like it is still working, but replacing it could still be pricey if you are out of warranty.

I would recommend contacting Apple directly and checking the warranty dates for your phone. You can also contact the wireless carrier if you purchased through them. As long as you haven't damaged the phone in anyway, they will replace or fix it free of charge.

SOURCE: iphone screen not responsive in certain areas

You have a broken digitizer or touch panel. Apple should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, you can try to open it and replace the touch panel. You can get the part on Ebay or at iPhone Repair and there is a free guide that shows you how to open an iPhone and install parts at iPad Repair Guide.

Touch screen

Most likely the digitizer is no longer working. This is what detects the touch on the screen. The digitizer will have to be replaced or the entire screen.

LG 55LH40 is showing only the top quarter of the picture. The rest of the image is blank. It functions this way on all inputs.

Large TV screens are made up of 3 or more sections, and each has a separate driver board controlling it, both on the circuits inside, and in the actual TV thin film screen panel (that's the clear panel that actually has the picture appear on it, then a back light shows it up).
To know which part has gone faulty is very difficult to diagnose without the right electronic testing equipment and training in tracking electronic faults down. But you can narrow it down quickly as there are only a few simple parts inside a TV.
If possible, you need to track down either the correct driver board and try replacing that, or unfortunately it can be the actual screen itself has gone faulty (this is rare but does happen).
As an example, I had a 32 inch TV, perfect working order back in 2007. My house electric got a power spike and the electric all went off. When it came back on, the TV only had one 3rd working (top 3rd). I had to change the whole TV front panel - all of the other parts were still perfect. To learn about TV repairs I took the display apart to track the fault piece by piece - I was told it wasn't possible by 3 engineers in shops, but it can happen, the actual flat panel was at fault, and a replacement at a yard sale for $15 fixed it again. That was a few years back and ive fixed about 30 since then, i'd say a quarter of them just needed the whole display changing (not the actual back light section or T - CON board if it's that type)
It's also possible that there is corrosion / oxidation on the screen contacts, and its easier / cheaper to try cleaning them first with appropriate electrical contact cleaner.

My phone screen has gone black

hey um yer not to good, by the sounds of it the phone has stuffed your screen not to hard to fix ive fixed so many of them, have look on eBay, trade me for the brand and model of your phone and then screen replacement but make sure you get a display screen not a LCD screen or you will just be buying a touch screen and look on you tube on how to put it in, it is so much cheaper then getting the company to do it and probably faster, i hope i help

My iPod screen is searching (circle rotating) and is not responding/stopping when I press on/off button, etc. When I attached it to my computer I got an 0xE8000065 error message. Has anyone experienced...

Try pressing and holding the top and home buttons until the iPod Touch powers-off.

You will have to hold both buttons down for about 15 to 20 seconds before the screen will go black.

Once the screen has gone black, release both buttons and press them both again briefly to start the iPod Touch.

The start-up time after this type of reset is considerably longer than normal, so do not panic if it takes a while to start up.

Please let us know how it goes.

Thanks for using FixYa and have a great day.

Hi, the new screen you bought is not very ok , that's why there are some malfunctioning going on with the touch screen,Might be due to the technician that fix it that is why the screen is malfunctioning.

If the screen you bought is on guarantee,i would advice that you take it back for replacement of another screen.

Take care.
