Make sure the $TERM accurately describes your terminal, and clear your terminal wih tset -Q before using screen. If that is not the fix, try a remove and reinstall screen.

I have not been in a screen mood for decades, as once I left modem terminal access behind, I moved on to using Xterms, X via VNC. You get a full X desktop local to the applications that waits for you to connect a VNCviewer and resume your tasks. I put one Xvnc desktop on each server I frequent.

Please give a try to reset. And then try to list all the available screens and try to attach to you screen again. Hope it helps
