Thread: Lines across my phone
06-29-2009, 11:49 AM #1Lines across my phone
Yesterday night I noticed a small black/gray line on my phone. I figured it was a bunch of dead pixels or something. But when I woke up this morning and looked at my phone the line had grew a lot bigger. Has anyone ever experienced this before and know what's wrong with it?

Looks to be an issue with the LCD.

The weird thing is even when I shut off my phone I can still see the line if I look really closely and it has now stretched all the way across the screen. (I know in the picture the line is blue, it changes from blue/black depending on the background.)

Have to admit that mine did this after it bounced, but is it a replacement LCD screen thats needed.?
Mine is also a 1st gen iPhone, so is it worth repairing, or holding on and getting a 3GS later this year??

I wondered why that "speaker" didn't work - microphone. Got it now... LOL
What do you reckon about the screen, have tried the massaging technique and the ipixel flasher thingy.
Is it worth laying out the cash for a new LCD screen and attempting the repair, or just bite the bullet and get the 3GS for £100.00??

if its in warranty, restore it, take it to the apple store and get a new one. Only problem is when i got a new phone for my defective one, they activated the phone, you might be out of luck when they see ur t-mobile sim card!If I helped you out in any way, hit the Thanks Button.
