    hey guys, I'm sure I'm not the only one to have had this happen. Dropped my regular S10, and now only get half a screen. It worked for a few days, with the bottom half flickering (like it was shorting out) and now its toast.

    All touch and on screen fingerprint functions work, but a completely black bottom half kind of makes it difficult to use LOL, more like useless.

    I want to order some parts and try to fix myself, but not sure what I will need to fix (seeing as all the buttons still work).

    Thoughts? Here's a pic....

    thanks in advance.

    Hi, if you haven't done a screen replacement before , I recommend you take it to a repair center so you don't damage anything further.

    Thanks I've done them in the past so not worried about that. More curious what parts I need exactly.... I don't want to buy everything, just the items I need based on my symptoms.

    Thanks man. I checked it out but can't see anything that says something to the effect of: if part of display is black and touch functions and everything else works then you just need to replace xyz part. Know what I mean?
