Half of my screen keeps going white, what's causing it?

This hasnt been happening at all until just yesterday. My screen is already cracked but I cracked it even more the day before yesterday. Yesterday the screen would flicker in the lock screen and randomly after an hour or so of use half the screen would go white, just enough of the screen that it covers the whole keyboard except for the autofill bar. The screen glitches at random and is easily fixed by resetting the phone, but it becomes tedious since I use my phone a lot. Do I have to get the screen fixed?

Edit: The situation got way, way worse. I can’t use my phone at all anymore. In addition to the white screen, the rest of the screen just now started to go completely dark and flicker. Resetting the phone no longer fixes the issue. It got so bad I had to use my laptop to edit my question. This glitch is not only annoying, but dominating my entire phone to the point that it wont work properly.

The problem here is the AMOLED screens cost so much it quickly totals out the phone in many cases, unless you get a deal on a minor defect replacement. You likely broke the screen, which is more common now since the glass is stronger then the display. The problem with Samsung’s unreasonable repair cost is one generation will do it with a cheap phone - you may get 2 out of a flagship, but after that it’s cheaper to buy a new phone and retire the broken one unless you need the data.

Since buying the bare screen will likely total the phone out, your second best option is a choice:

  • Buy a donor with a bad IMEI (Hint: Financed T-Mo phones with 60+ days past due finance balances - they’re doomed once that happens since nobody “owns up” to get it unblocked. They let people walk from the phone payments like deadbeats, so most T-Mo phones frequently financed are doomed — it’s so bad, that a responsible seller checks, and financing makes it “parts only” with a matched price because of the rate they get blocked anyway, so eat it and sell it “as-is”. Buy one where it happened since the bad IMEI turns it into a parts phone, move your board, cameras and back glass and fix your phone - verify the charge board, but it may be okay to leave be.)
  • Buy a used device (factory unlocked, U at the end - unless you have Verizon and they want the Verizon S8 and IMEI block the U variant) with an issue that kills resale, like screen burn - this will yield a cheap device because literally 95% of them are “burned” so even a burned in notification bar gets you a deal. Unless you find a unicorn, it’s there - don’t pay more for it then you need to)

After you find a screen, follow this guide to the point you can drop the new screen into the phone. DO NOT disassemble it further - that breaks these screens so just move the board and cameras, as well as the charge port if need be.

A bit of an update here. The service on T-Mo is good, but their high-cost phones are usually financed.

DO NOT BUY THEM unless the seller gives you the IMEI privately to check, and it's free and clear!!! Finance=PARTS, so pay accordingly!!!

Ugh. It's irritating for me that I can't trust a used T-Mo phone most of the time and I just buy U/U1 Samsung, but I know U/U1 is free and clear 100% of the time.

Essentially the problem with your device is the screen itself. The first drop may have been minor enough that it didn’t damage the touch digitizer or the LCD. with the second drop now you are having more issues with a damaged LCD that the part itself can’t work properly anymore. simply just get a screen replacement.
