Big red block on note 10

My screen is suddenly covered over two thirds with a big red block. I have not dropped the note10 plus. How do I get rid of it?

Try Samsung support https://www.samsung.com/uk/smartphones/

Hey @LJC happy Friday! It would be interesting to hear if you managed to find out what that red block was on your phone screen in the end? Smiley Happy

Re: Big red block on note 10

Samsung have been absolutely useless. It is now day two of week two and I can't get anyone to arrange a repair. Still can't use my phone.


I now know that it is a common problem on the Note 10 and is screenburn on the OLED screen. The usual repair is to replace the screen and battery under warranty.


However I just get generic responses by email and no luck with the online chat or phone. In fact they are a bit rude.


If anyone has any ideas how I can speed up this absolute circus, please let me know.
