Coloured pixels screen

Hello everyone,

The screen of my Fairphone 3+ died two weeks ago.
I have sent a mail to the company but not answer yet.
I do not what to do.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

This could well be a loose screen, you can search for similar topics.

Check if there are any gaps on the slim sides between the display module and the phone’s main body. If there are any, gently press the phone together to try to close them.

If that doesn’t help, I would take off the display and put it back on as described here:

Hi Fairphone community,

I’ve had my Fairphone for some years now and never had any problems with it. However, yesterday it accidentally fell off a table and it now permanently looks like an analogue TV:

Whilst the screen doesn’t work at all, the phone itself still functions - I can reset it, it still charges and picks up calls and messages (albeit I can’t see or interact with them).

Once or twice I’ve actually managed to get the screen to temporarily reappear and function normally again, through squeezing the top and bottom of the screen at the same time, however this only lasts for a short while before the fuzz returns.

Does anyone know what could be causing this, and whether it is fixable?

Appreciate your help!

If you serach you will find many such queries.


take the back off and reassemble the dispaly.



No need to reassemble directly. Just tighten all the screws and see if it works again


Thank you both for the help!

If it happens again and you happen to be without a screw driver, try and bend the phone along the long axis. This often helped me to make the screen work again temporarily
