Note 8 Screen Has Flickering Horizontal Lines
Problem: Hello there, I have a note 8 that was just received after replacing the screen from Samsung due to a screen burn in. I noticed horizontal lines are flickering from bottom to top covering the whole screen when swiping half a swipe from the home screen to the app drawer. It does not show on a white or dark backgrounds. Also, when on the home screen couple not many lines could be seen there as static lines not moving. Is this normal? Note that the screen was just replaced after a burn in. What do you recommend me to do?
Solution: It looks like the replacement screen is also damaged. You can check if this is caused by a software glitch by doing a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset. If the issue still occurs after the reset then you need to bring the phone back to the Samsung service center and have it repaired.
