    Sounds like you damaged the AMOLED display - your best bet is to replace the whole screen assembly (ex. http://m.repairsuniverse.com/samsung...ent-white.html)

    Sigh... The screen is made up of three layers:
    - the glass, which protects everything
    - the digitizer, which picks up your touch
    - the AMOLED display, which displays everything
    The digitizer and display must be accurately aligned or it'll record touch events somewhere other than where you think you're looking.
    And to top it off this stuff is glued together, so when taking it apart you're just as likely to break the bad component as you are to break a good component.

    Does it sound easy to fix it yourself? If you think so, you're welcome to watch YouTube videos describing how to do it and to buy the parts and try it - let us know how that works out for you.
