Try inserting

super.paint(g);

as the first method call in your paint() method.

The

tempG = g;

in your paint method doesn't make any sense. The graphics object is created by AWT when it calls the paint method, and isn't valid anymore outside of the paint method. Later calling paint with tempG in ChangeScreen therefore doesn't do anything useful.

You should never call paint directly. Instead, if you want the component to update its appearance, you should call repaint() instead. That will cause AWT to call your paint method with a valid graphics object.

Moving to the AWT forum, where the experts will correct me...
