Technology hates me. phone screen has purple tint

So over the summer my pantech pursuit 2 was killed by a leading water bottle. My parents bought me a new one but I had to work out off. They got me the pantech pursuit 1 this time. Well I hate. But I'm just happy to have a phone.

Then Thursday, I pulled it out of my pocket and punched when I was greeted by a purple discoloration all over. The phone is still functional but it's annoying. I freaked out and turned it of and took the battery out. I put it back in and out was still purple. Then randomly it snapped back to normal.

Then Friday, yesterday, it did it again. Only this time it won't go away. I can still use it but I'm just frustrated. I don't get a new phone til November. Is it going to get worse? Can I fix it? My mom is going to call to see if there's a warranty. But as of now I'm stuck and upset.

I'm sorry! I'm terrible with technology too. I've only had a cell phone for 3 years and I've gone through 4 already and I'm on my fifth. I don't know how long this one is going to last but hopefully it is longer than my previous phones :p

I am no expert by all means and I really don't know how screens work. But, it sounds like at some point the screen was under pressure or maybe some moisture got it and damaged it. I doubt that this problem will get worse so I hope that it hold out for you until November :)

I had a laptop screen do that. A few months later the motherboard fried. It was a loan laptop so I freaked out, thinking I would have to pay for it, but it turned out it was something like 8 years old and dying anyway.

Phones are different though.
