Hi Linda

I'm Wayne.

I'll be assisting you with this issue today.

Thank you for coming to Just Answer

Your Question is as important to us as it is to you.

Just Answer might prompt you for a phone call,

that request is not from me and is not necessary.

You can try to disconnect the battery for 10-15 minutes and see if that will reset the screen.

If not then the screen needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps you.
