    Screen on cell phone turned negative.

    I picked it up and its like looking at photo negatives. Apparently hit wrong button. How do I right this?

    I'm an old geezer who is confused by technology. Please keep any description basic. Thanks in advance.

    A vital fact required for anyone to help is what kind of phone with which you are afflicted. Is it an iPhone?

    The behavior it probably a setting on the phone.

    Once you let the gentle readers know the phone type one of them can probably get it back to a better place.

    I did a quick search on the Interweb of "iphone screen negative image" and this article came up first.

    I don't have a iThing so cannot test it but I suspect the steps in the article above will be helpful.

    You clicked the home button 3 times fast. It’s a setting. You prob fixed by now but if not click the home button 3 times fast again.
