    Is this hardware or software related?

    I soldered on a new batter for my 2G and this is how the screen looks after I put everything back together.

    The touch screen works fine and everything seems to be displayed in the correct location. But the colors are totally wrong.

    I need to know whether it is hardware or software related? Do I need a new ribbon or a new phone?

    Have you checked all the LCD related cables/ribbons are hooked up properly. Ive seen similar on laptops when theres a poor connection.

    If one1 is the 2G god I'd give him a bell. I'm afraid I only have 3g Disassembly experience, and even then im no guru...

    Hope you get it sorted!

    Looks like you damaged the LCD.

    You mean the actual LCD display surface, the graphics chip or the cabling?

    It's your decoder plug, not seated properly. The bigger cable going to the lcd that runs with the other cable side by side. (the side with 2 cables). The other side is the lonely digitizer cable, not what we are talking about here.

    On the side with 2 cables, lift those plugs up going from the mobo to the lcd and reseat them tightly.
