    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:

    Not cracked where you can see it? Or did remove the screen from the device to verify it is not cracked? I think it's probably cracked.

    HI,

    I have the same issue. My kids were playing with my tablet and the next thing i saw was the strange screen color. Were you able to resolve your own issue?

    Thanks

    So what is the answer here? I did the exact same thing. Is there a fix I can do? I'm living in Myanmar and I can't just make a simple phone call or take it to a dealer or repair place. What can I do?

    I am having same problem. Just did a factory reset and the colors are still inverted.
    I don't have any options relating to 'negative colors' in the Accessability menu.

    Any other ideas? Looks like it is probably a hardware problem.

    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.

    Hi everybody, thanks for all the useful answers. I have the same problem except my tablet didn't fall. I've tried searching the SETTINGS menu, then ACCESIBILITY tab, but there's no VISION tab, hence, no INVERTED COLORS tab either. The Android version is the latest (4.4) so I can't see where the problem is. Other than that, the tablet is working fine. Any help with this? Thank you so much.

    My girlfriends nextbook 12 inch tablet purchased from Walmart lost the colors in the screen and she could not get them back. I worked delegently attempting to resolve the issue and to no results until I read the post with instructions. I tried the solution and she now is back with a colorful screen.

    Turns out I can't post a link with my pic on it, but trust me when I say the video cable was seated crooked. The image looks a lot like when an HDMI is half unplugged.

    Look up a teardown video and reseat the cable. I did not realize that the cable could also be detached from the LCD end until another user recommended you replace the LCD cable. Technically, this would work as well, but my cable is undamaged. Fixed my tablet. Good luck with your repair.

I took the back off and the bottom of the far right ribbon there is a white line that I guess tells where the ribbon should be and mine was a little off so I stright end it out and bam! It has been messed up for over a year and now it's fixed!

    Similar problem. My daughter dropped her Tablet Note 10.1 and colours went as per image provided in the post. I looked into the far right ribbon (which actually controls the input to the screen. Mine was properly aligned at the connector (anyway, I reconnected it - just to be sure). However I noticed that the ribbon is folded and 2 sides of the fold need to touch (probably cross-over signal processing issues and Samsung found a dirty fix by taping those sides together). I secured the two folded sides with the masking tape and it worked wonders.

    Look at the response from Kev people. Settings -> Accessibility -> uncheck "Negative Colors"
    I gave my tablet to my 15 month old niece and saw the screen all messed up after a few mins. When I rebooted it would temporarily fix the problem, but as soon as an app was opened colors were inverted again. Changing this setting resolved my issue.

    I HAD THE SAME ISSUE. BUT NO APP OR SETTINGS WILL HELP YOU. You dropped your phone, so the damage should be inside or outside of it (hardware). So no software thingy will help you. i prefer you guys to go to the customer service or to some people who knows about tablet. Maybe a technician or smartphone/tablet repair man. don't you try to open it by your own. It might get worst. but if you are lucky enough to have a friend who's expert in this stuff. Well tell them to bring anything he needs and try to fix it in your house. And ask him what to do if this happens again. So that you will have knowledge about it. Btw. Give them some food to eat after he fix it. Nothing is free now. Move your *** and ask some help from the expert not in this forum. yeah maybe they can give you a try of what to do but Does it actually really helps you? About 20% I guess. Some comments are here are just like opinions to me.
