    Hi Everyone. I bought a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with a damaged LCD. When I tried to turn it on with the damaged LCD, the middle half of the screen would flash for less than a second every 7 seconds or so but it would never turn on. I figured it was the LCD so I bought a new one and changed it. When I tested it out, it showed the Samsung logo for a couple of seconds and then got the same flashing half screen for less than a second and it never turns on! What could this problem be? I even changed the charging board to see if that was the problem, but still the same thing. I know for a fact the screen was good when I bought it because it was tested. Please help!

    Welcome to Android Central! My guess is that the problem is actually with the motherboard, and not with the screen.

    I was afraid someone would say that. Do you think this could have damaged the LCD?

    Since you replaced the LCD and it's still doing the same thing, I don't think it's an LCD problem. Maybe there's an issue with the connection or the circuitry leading to the connector.

    I would actually call Samsung and get an estimate if they have to replace the motherboard. It isn't very expensive when done out of warranty, generally.

    Thanks! I'll try that. I think I saw the motherboard on ebay for about $150. I'll call Samsung tho to get an estimate
