Anyone else have a red vertical line at the top right hand side of screen?

If so, is this normal? If not, what caused it and are there any fixes to this issue/bug? Would this be something covered under my warranty?

MichaelDriban,

Oh no! That doesn't sound good. What kind of phone do you have? How long has this issue been occurring? Is there any damage to the device? Let me know.

LG G3 phone....it's a very thin red line on the top right hand side of screen. maybe an inch in length. not a nuisance but still visible.

A screenshot of this would help.

Is this common? Have others seen the same thing and if so, what was done to correct it? Will this problem be covered under my warranty?

MichaelDriban,

Thanks for reaching out. If there is no damage to your device, this may be a software issue. In this case, it should be covered by your warranty. Have you tried going to a Sprint repair store?

no but I will. it's really no big deal though. just curious if it could get worse and if it warrants getting a new phone.

Sounds like the back light is going bad. If you have a camera or something to take an image of your phone that would be helpful to see if its indeed backlight or software.

Yes I have the same thing mine is almost half way down the screen. I took it to a sprint repair center and the rep insisted I dropped the phone this phone has never been dropped or any misuse. It started out small but has been getting longer in time. I hope you get a better response from sprint than I recieved.
