[Update: Warranty details] Some Galaxy S7 edge owners are experiencing an irritating display issue

Some Galaxy S7 edge owners are reporting that an irremovable vertical pink line has appeared on their device’s display, reveals technology blog Myce. The issue, which dates back to as early as March 2016, has been reported a number of times on various forums and social channels, including reddit. Unfortunately, it’s unknown why exactly the line surfaces, but users who have experienced it claim that it’s completely random and is not a result of physical damage.

Samsung isn’t recognizing this as a widespread issue, though. Instead, a community moderator on its forums is advising users to send handsets suffering from the problem in for repair, but noted that the technicians will decide if they’re covered by the warranty — so it ultimately comes down to whether they think it’s the fault of the owner or a defect. If your Galaxy S7 edge is showing a pink line on the screen, Myce recommends the following as a possible short-term fix:

Go to the dial pad on your Samsung Galaxy s7 Edge and enter *#0*# . Then click on Red, Green and Blue. This should reset the individual pixels of each color. If it doesn’t work the first time it might be worth to repeat it several times.

Update: Samsung Benelux is reportedly replacing screens experiencing the pink line free of charge under warranty.

I would like to report a finding on the pink line problem. I believe it’s a camera related issues if you swipe your hand on the top of the screen under the front camera the line appears and dissappers( you must do this on the lock screen or the music player while it’s on the lockscreen mode)

you dropped your phone? unfortunately that is not covered by warranty. You need insurance to cover that. If you had gone before to Samsung about the Pink line then it would have been covered by warranty because it is a fault by Samsung. But because you dropped and cracked the screen, there’s nothing to do but pay for the repair or buy a new one. Sorry there’s not much that can be done about it.

My friend’s S7 Edge had the same problem even though he never dropped it. He contacted the Samsung India customer service and they replaced the phone’s screen free of cost under warranty.

It’s a hardware issue. Even if you use that it might help you for a short term only.

Go and get it replaced from the place you bought it, or from a Samsung center if you have that in your country.

That’s the only way you’ll get a permanent fix

I had this issue on my old S4 note long after I had bought off the shelf less than a month prior (this was when they launched the S4 BTW so it had just hit the market). I dropped it on a tarp in the garage- 15cm drop. No physical damage. But pink line was there. They sorted it out and gave me no hassles at all even though K was upfront with what happened. They include these disclaimers because there is ALWAYS someone looking to take advantage. With the Note 7 outcome and S8 looming, Samsung is again a sensational clickbait target.

Poor connection between LCD and main board. Usually caused by delamination of ribbon from screen or poor connection of connector to board.

Don’t have the pink line, my problem is my S7 randomly shuts down. During a game, phone call or just when ever shuts down or reboots randomly. Tried to get help with it and it locked up and lost half my data.

Had same problem. Screen was replaced under warranty by my mobile operator Telenor Bulgaria. Repair took about a week.

I had this issue with my S7edge. I took it into T-Mobile and replaced it. The refurbished one hasn’t had this issue. If you press hard on the second S in Samsung, it goes away. Makes me think it’s a screen seperation issue.

I’m wondering if this has something to do with users entering developing options at some point? Because it will show those lines when switched to certain options in there

I received no issues on my S7 edge yet. Its amazing to see so many complaints. The S7 this the S7 that…. it seems so hard to believe.

Has anyone had a problem after the latest update nougat 7.0. I found that it wiped my micro ad card clean and now the phone will not recognize it, I have tried another micro sd card and it didn’t recognize it.

I read somewhere, and tested it’s true, that pressing on the ‘G’ letter of ‘SAMSUNG’ has the effect of removing temporarily that annoying pink vertical line, though it reappears soon or later.
I sent my device to Samsung for repair under warranty, and I’ve been notified a refurbished unit is coming to my retailer.
I’d prefer my own device to be repaired, or a really new device to replace the one of mine, but it seems only Samsung decides on the matter…

refurbished is pretty much new, and doesn’t mean it’s ever been used just used as parts or what ever

I had the same problem twice on my S7 edge and both the times Samsung Service changed my screen under warranty. Scared to death that it’ll happen again and I’ll be out of warranty period.

What about the s7 edge screen being the oat prone to scratches? I have had a lot of phones and always went naked. Not one single one has ever had a scratch. The s7e scratches from just being in my pocket from lint. I currently have 3 phones in rotation in the same pocket and not one of them has a single scratch

My s7 edge at Tmobile had the same line out of the box when I got it. Glad they wanted to turn it on so they could go get another one in the back. I’m done with Samsung phones. Always too many problems. Software and hardware.
