    I'm no expert but id suggest not dropping it again. Maybe cracked the digitizer?

    That looks bad. Maybe a soft reset or massaging the area will remove some of the dead pixels but it looks permanently messed up. Warranty claim perhaps?

    The glass is too thin and close to the display. Damaging the LCD is fairly easy.

    Try PixelFinder in the store, and make sure your glass is in place.

    L1520 is optically bonded, my mistake. Was thinking of another phone...

    If you clamped your phone fairly tight with your hand you could easily replicate the damage in other places.
    Some people massage the glass around the stuck area, others freeze their phones... Too much snake oil when it comes to LCD repair.

    I have never been able to fix a LCD with damage like this. Apps like PixelFinder are generally considered the most reliable forms of screen repair, but they have never worked for me ~_~

    I hope it works for you, very unfortunate.

    User, please do not create multiple threads on the same topic it does not help you get better advice when the conversation gets scattered across different threads.
