Is my screen dead or is it a cable issue?

Hi all,

My apple watch screen suddenly went bright green/yellow (see video). The digitiser still works and the watch hardware is ok (siri will answer). If its the cable, then I'll open it up.


Sadly the cost for a 44mm replacement is more than the watch is woth.

Hi Dave

I quite hard to say but it could be a cable issue!

It could also be a internally damaged OLED display

I would open it up and reseat the cables in their connectors and if that doesn’t work it will need replaced

I never pay the price they want for them new so I get a iCloud locked ones and remove their displays as they cost waaaaaay less and it’s original quality. :-)

Hopefully this helps

Thanks, I'll crack it open later and see if I can reseat the cables. The watch has had a hard life if its dead its dead.

Thanks for the locked watch tip too, I've not thought about that.



Sounds good:-)

When you open it up try and use a curved exacto knife and use a hairdryer to melt the adhesive

It’s quite hard to get the screens off so if you need any help just give another answer and il try and help:-)

@ds2000 - Sorry guy, you do need a new display. The screens decode chip is on the back side which likely got liquid damaged here. There really is no cable to replace here.

If you jump to Step21 the cable harness is part of the S4 SIP package which you can see in Step 11 in the Apple Watch Series 4 Teardown

Thanks Dan,

I'll get looking for a spares watch with a good display. Im not paying more than the value of the current watch to repair it.

I was due to upgrade last year but the latest version was such a small step I didn't bother, I'd have probably gotten 150-200 euros for this back then and given it'll be the beating I give them with sport thats broken it, for someone else it probably would have lasted a few more years.


Hi David,

Having the same issue as you. Can you confirm that replacing the screen fixed the problem?

Thank you!
