    Hello all,

    It seems like I am having the same issue described here - in the post called samsung-galaxy-tab-2-10-1/372667-dropped-tablet-now-screen-has-inverted-colors-did-not-crack.html (I cannot post links yet)

    The image of the original poster almost perfectly matches what I'm seeing. However, even though you would think that these are negative colors and I just need to uncheck that setting, that's not the case.

    After going through a few different things, including factory resetting and hard formatting the device, I am almost certain that it's a hardware problem. The issue (from what I gather) occurs with most colors, but not all. For example, if I browse a folder which would be shades of grey for the background and the file listings then it almost looks perfect... some icons look fine too - the ones that are a little darker.. but the backgrounds and the majority of any color that it's a little brighter are completely off and distorted.

    So, my question to you is - assuming that it is a hardware problem - what would be the part to replace? I am a pretty technical person, and I've changed parts before, so I would like to go at it... but at the same time I am not sure if this could be due to the digitizer, or the LCD, or even if we maybe just need 1 cable... the LCD connector of some sort.

    Open to other ideas too, but I have tried pretty much everything I could think of in terms of software. We did not drop it or anything - this started happening out of the blue.

    Thank you in advance!
