    Hi, I got a 2nd hand iPhone 4s yesterday. It was working fine, everything as it should be. Just this evening for (what I can gather) no reason, I went to use it and some faint flickering lines have appeared on the screen. You can see them on everything, each app/home/lock screen, though if it's a white screen you have to look hard, same with all black.

    Tried turning off and on, tried reset (hold lock and home for 10 seconds), no luck.

    Running version 7.1.2

    Is the screen dead (/dying)? Is it something else? Just my luck, only had it a couple of days and it breaks!

    Welcome to iMore sbnufc

    Looking at the pick it looks to be screen related but I would get a repair opinion

    Sorry to hear this but the 4s is worth fixing

    Welcome to iMore. I'm not sure, but it could be the two clips that connect your screen to the motherboard have come loose. I would take it to a reputable repair shop and have them look at it.

    Take it to any local repair shop and tell them to give a look.
