Default Screen issue

Bought this phone very cheap with lines on half of the screen and the volume down is inoperable was told. And i was told phone is fully functional. I dont have the phone yet but will this week. Can i still use volume in settings? Can this line issue be fixed if factory reset it or firmware upgrade? Can this phone be rooted without PC if i cant get volume down to work? Maybe adjusting brightness would help a little? or move all apps to middle somehow?

Well, I don't blame the person for getting rid of that phone.

Water damage can cause the issues you're reporting. That is worrisome, but not entirely impossible to remedy if you're willing to maybe spend some more money and look around for a new screen via Google.

Check inside the battery case for the water/moisture detector sticker. I believe that on the T-bolt the indicator is a red sticker on the stock battery itself. I think there is also a little hole on the left with a "void" (as in warranty) indicator if it's been exposed to moisture.

Rooting is the last thing I'd be worried about, but again, if you're willing to do some work you can get it done.
