    Unhappy Galaxy S3 purple/pink screen?

    My Galaxy S3 fell today in snow, I quickly picked it up and wiped it really well! After an hour I noticed there was a pink spot on the top left corner of the phone... Slowly after couple hours it spread.. Now my phone is all Purple/Pink.... I can't see or even use it! Please tell me what it is, Water Damage Motherboard or LCD Screen Damage??

    I don't know which it is, but my suggestion is to pull the battery asap, then put the phone in a sealed container of dry rice for a day or two. The rice will help draw the moisture out of the phone.

    This definetly sounds like water damage. Pull the battery, and put the phone in something that will dry it (like rice) and leave it for a day or two. Make sure the back, battery and phone itself are all separate in the rice to ensure everything gets dried.

    I think it is not moisture problem that caused it. I just got the same screen problem n check online to find solution. This is the only site I found someone faced this problem as my phone.
    My S3 was dropped today, abt 3ft heigh on concrete floor at my room. Well nothing happened for hours. Was using it to play game n chats. But all of a sudden the purple/pink started "dominating" screen in fade-in effect. It went brighter n brighter n I quickly switched the phone off. Took out the batt, waited for a while n put the batt in n turned on the phone. Still the same screen problem is there.

    Sigh...

    Both situations are more or less the same thing. The LCD has been damaged. In your case from inpact, in the OP's case maybe water, maybe also impact.
