    Hey guys, about three days ago, my s5 had a weird filter when the brightness isn't at full. There are some lines, the colors are all washed out and inaccurate especially the blacks which appear red-brown. I have tried everything, yes, even a factory reset, and no luck. I took some pictures to describe the situation of my phone. And if you think it's just a bad camera quality, trust me, it isn't.

    Why does my S5 display get a green-yellow filter when on low brightness?-20150312_212316-1-.jpg Why does my S5 display get a green-yellow filter when on low brightness?-20150312_212350-1-.jpg Why does my S5 display get a green-yellow filter when on low brightness?-20150312_212458-1-.jpg Why does my S5 display get a green-yellow filter when on low brightness?-20150312_213131-1-.jpg

    If anyone has a solution, please help and thank you for your time.

    It looks like your amoLED screen is burnt or just dyig..
    the only time I've seen something like that is when someone had an old screen protector on that was discoloring everything.
    what happens when you change the screen settings from dynamic to whatever? I'm guessing it stays the same?

    I never had a screen protector on. And , you were right, when i change my screen mode, nothing happens.

    So you think its a hardware problem ?

    I've been doing some research and didn't find anything. I'm pretty sure its an uncommon problem, but the closest I've found are dead pixels or a burnt screen.

    You need to take your phone to a Samsung Service Point and get it checked out as it looks as though you have a faulty AMOLED screen. It can happen in the complicated manufacturing process of these screens.
