    Had the same issue, with no real help or direction. So remove the back over, Start by removing the chrome cover it just snaps off. Under it remove 3 screws. Remove the PEN. Now from the hole were the pin slides in start to pop the back over by sliding plastic knife around in the gap, twisted as you go to pop up back just clips down. Now look at my pictures you will see the madness under. Both ends of the Ribbon cable have to be seated, look at the white line, one of the connections you can see because the cable is folded over it, hiding it. Good luck.

    I had this same problem and inverting the colours on settings did not work. I took it apart by watching a youtube video and i reseated the video cable at both connectors. I turned on the tablet before I closed it up to ensure it was working and realized I needed to keep my finger on the cable where it folded back in order for it to work properly. I just wedged piece of paper there and closed up the tablet. It works fine now. Hope you have the same luck.

    Thank you. I had the same issue with sudden color inversion. I went to Assessability and turned off the color inversion. Changed immediately.

    Mine did the same one morning when I took it out of my Laptop bag, I opened and found that the screen cable wiggled looseDropped tablet and now screen has inverted colors (did not crack)-samsung-galaxy-note-10.1-gt-n8013-battery.png

    I carefully pushed it back and secured it with some sticky tape. Works perfectly now...

    If You don't feel comfortable opening the device then I strongly recommend You take it into a service shop and get it done by a pro... Hope this helps

    I had the same problem. It wasn't anything in settings, it was because I dropped it. Then, the colour code was off, and the screen was static in some areas.

    I can't believe the answers I'm reading here. You cannot change the settings by dropping the tablet. You can knock the cable lose to the LCD or damaged the LCDs like the one pictured above. I am replacing mine for the second time after dropping it. There are videos on YouTube that show exactly how to disassemble and replace it. For my Galaxy 10.1 n8013 I found a new LCD for $15. I find it irritating that people that don't know the answer post the guesswork.

    My tab 2 10.1 fell from my bed onto the tile. The screen did not crack, but now the colors are almost all inverted or generally just messed up. I'm wondering if there is a wire or a connection possibly loose that I might be able to fix, or will I have to purchase a brand new part in order to resolve this issue? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Here's what it looks like:

    I had the same problem and I have fixed it.

    The problem is/was that during the impact the connector for the lcd was almost unplugged. Somehow it still got some signals through but became scrambled or somthing and it made the screen look like it was history.
    check this video out and repeat Now my samsung tab is like new

    What a lot of unhelpful answers.
    Samsung answer was incomplete and not much help!

    So: select SETTINGS
    Then DEVICE tab
    Then ACCESSIBILITY from left hand menu
    then VISION
    then you will see a NEGATIVE COLOURS option. Remove the checkmark from the box and your problem is solved.

    This is not difficult to do, but the sequence is not immediately obvious. Samsung documentation is very poor, lacking in essential detail.
    I tried this and my screen is till all out of order. And I didn't even drtop my tablet. One minute I'm lying in bed here screen is fine. Next out of nowhere it goes all funky.

    I went to the settings, the inverted colors was off and when I turn it on or off the colors are still messed up. Should I send the tablet to the company or something? I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4.
