    Since your screenshot looks perfectly fine, it's a good indication that you have damaged the hardware :(

    It could be a simple as having loosened the screen connection to the main board (re-seating the cable may fix it), or it could be more serious. Either way, you need to get it in for repair. Someone will have to open it up and see what's what.

    Best of luck. Hope you get it fixed.

    The screenshot you're showing is the way it should look for YouTube on safari, if all of your screens look that way you may have a problem.

    It turned out to be a loose connection from the drop and I read the forum that Leelai sent me and a person said give it 3 gentlish claps on the back, that's what I did, and it went back to normal.
