Galaxy S7 Edge users seeing pink


Users of Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge have been reporting problems with their screens where a pink vertical line appears down the length of the screen.
Although it was reported since March 2016, it has become more common now. Users have been complaining across multiple forums and websites, reported The problem appeared even when the phones were not dropped or suffered any water damage.
According to Myce, some users managed to fix the problem by resetting the pixels: type *#0*# into the phone’s dial pad. On that settings screen, press “red”, “green” and “blue” to reset the pixel colours. You may have to repeat this several times.
If that method does not work, Samsung said it will fix the phone as long as it is still covered under warranty and has no visible damage, which would indicate the phone having been dropped previously. Myce warned it could take days or weeks to fix and the repair may not be covered by warranty.
The rise in complaints seemingly coincided with the rollout of Android Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 Edge and may be a bug in the update. However, some users in forums also suggested that the issue was hardware related and came from the LED screen itself. They found that lightly pressing down on the upper part of the screen below the camera lens fixed the problem temporarily.
