IPhone :: Screen Showing Vertical Lines?

I purchased the new black 32GB iPhone 3GS and noticed there were vertical lines. They are very faint and can be seen when the screen is on a white background. I have owned all iPhone models and iPhone and iPhone 3G do not have them. So me being used to the screen, I noticed these details. I actually like the warmer look the screen has, the colors do pop out more =). I have no other problem with my 3GS but after reading other post about a high pitch tone coming from the phone after locking it, I did notice that my iPhone does make that high pitch tone.

A good example of what I could find that resembles what my screen looks like was my wallpaper, look at the top part of the apple (not the leaf)

you see those lines? Everything else is great I would say, any ideas what I should do? could a software update fix this?I really do not wanna get a replacement in fear of getting another messed up one, I have read people having problems with wifi. I do not wanna keep going to the apple store, and I bet they think I am crazy after all the times I have been there. I paid a lot of money so I expect great quality...

When I purchased my 3G, my home button was working fine until I got in the car. I made an appointment with the genius bar but it started the day of the appointment. I still went because i wanted to make sure it was not gonna happen again and it did. My luck with iPhones are very bad, i went through 2 first generation iPhones. I take great care of my devices and do not let anyone handle them

IPhone :: Vertical Lines On 3G Screen
so i just put on the full body Bodyguardz protective film on my iphone 3g and noticed that i have these vertical lines that are somewhat fluorescent when tilting the iphone in an angle. there are about 5 of them. i didnt notice them when i had the Bodyguardz off but i didnt turn on the phone without them. could this be the condensation that hasnt evaporated yet under the film as i had to spray the film with the solution that came with the Bodyguardz. there are some spots on the screen that is noticeable where condensation still exists but that is normal but these 5 vertical lines are pretty straight.

also, i had to remove my previous Bodyguardz because it was put on incorrectly by me and it was pretty tough to remove them. could it have damaged the screen when i removed it? i was gentle but it was still a good tug.

Nokia :: 5800 Vertical Lines Across Screen
a couple of days ago,i began to realize that there were moving vertical lines across the screen.the lines are most visible when my light sensor(intensity) settings is set at 75%. it only came to my attention when i hard resetted my phone 2 days ago and the intensity settings was reverted to its default 75%(i've kept it customized at 25% until 2 days ago).the moving vertical lines are less visible in darker backgrounds and at a lower light intensity.i was just wondering-is this normal?

BB Bold :: 9700 White Screen With Vertical Lines?
and it won't go away. the phone still works, as I am able to receive and send calls. I can press buttons and see changes on the screen, but all i get are vertical lines. Sometimes when I hit the phone a few times and press the lock button, it would go back to normal, but then it will return. Is the LCD display broken? I've opened the BB to see if it was loose, it is not. I've taken battery out and re-inserted to no avail.

Nokia :: 5800 Screen Get Horizontal / Vertical Lines When Unlocking
When I unlock my phone, I get horizontal and/or vertical lines - I can't use the phone during this time, because the display is so badly affected!

After about 5-10 seconds, the home screen will show perfectly normal. When I either lock the phone, or lock it manually, then unlock it a few minutes later the lines come back again!Is this a hardware or software fault? If it is a software fault, how can I resolve this annoying problem?

5800 v20.0.012 -- 6500s v9.40 -- 6233 v5.43 -- 5140 v3.13

BB Bold 9000 :: Noticing Weird Lines (vertical) On Screen
I don't know what it is but I see these vertical lines on my screen and when I turn the screen and look at it from an angle it sort of makes a rainbow-like change, could this be a defect? Should I send it in for a refurb if I can?

BB Bold 9000 :: Screen Not Displaying Images / Just Horizontal / Vertical Lines
Has anyone had any experience with their Bold's screen not displaying images, but instead displaying colorful horizontal and vertical lines? I must admit, while putting on my jacket yesterday the phone slipped out of the unzipped pocket and came crashing to the ground from about 4 feet up.The screen doesn't show any signs of bleeding or tie-dye and when I take off the back there is no red or pink discharge which I was told would be a bad thing.

I am still able to make and receive calls however I cannot see anything on the phone - thus I cannot navigate through it.I'm trying to figure out if this is an LCD thing (the screen is not cracked) or possibly a motherboard issue?

Nokia Lumia :: 710 Camera - Vertical Line Showing On Screen
I have a Nokia Lumia 710 since April 2012. But, from today (9 September, 2012), it's camera stopped working properly. I clicked a pic and then put it in my pocket. I took it out five minutes later to take another one, and since then it's been showing a vertical line. I thought I busted the cover-glass. But it was spotless. So I did a reboot. That did not work. So I immediately checked some other applications that access the camera (like ShutterPro and Handyscan). They too showed the line. ThenI reopened the camera app and I zoomed in and even the line got magnified. So I took a sample picture, and viewed it on my laptop. It is a pattern of dots. I enclose the photo with this.

Motorola Xoom :: Only Vertical Lines On Display?
I ordered my Xoom from, and exactly one day after their 30 day return period my tablet awakened showing only vertical lines. I am able to do a forced power-up (Volume up, power) but all you can see is the tablet going through the appropriately-colored start sequence, complete with the pulsating blue and purple honeycomb sequence - but with only somewhat compressed vertical lines. You can't really see where anything is on the screen, which has made it impossible to really acheive a factory reset start sequence. I've tried searching for this problem and haven't found it anywhere. I was wondering if anyone else had seen this.

Motorola suggested checking with place of purchase for return/exchange policy and/or returning the tablet to them. Mainly I'm curious if any others have experienced this and to let anyone who is know that they aren't the only one.

I love my Xoom, and after only 36hrs without it I am already missing it. Not looking forward to another couple of weeks.

Nokia :: Activate The Camera / Image With Vertical Lines
I have a problem with the sotware for the camera(s) - I assume that it is the sotware as the problem affects both front and back cameras? The problem is when I activate the camera I either get a completely black or blue screen or I get an image of whatever is in front of the camera but with lots of vertical (interference) lines.
These lines also appear on the photos - does anyone know if an update would solve this - I only got this yesterday and a quick fix would obviously be brilliant.

BB 8830 WE :: What Does Indicator Means - A Circle With Two Lines Through It One Horizontal And One Vertical
I just purchased my BB 8830 from Verizon. I've figured most everything out save for this one Indicator on my screen. Its on the upper left hand corner. It's a circle with two lines through it (one horizontal and one vertical - they cross), and then two other lines.

It looks for of like this O )) except the circle has a cross in it. Any ideas? I think it might be related to the SIM card. I bought the phone from a friend, and he had Global Service.

IPhone :: Vertical Scratch On Inner Bezel (right By Screen)
Despite careful handling, a strange vertical scratch/abrasion has appeared on the edge of my 3GS's bezel, right close to the actual screen. It's not too big but right in view. If it was anywhere else, I'd use high grit sandpaper to sand it out. But being so close to the LCD, I'd be concerned about grit coming off the paper and lodging between bezel and LCD.

IPhone :: 4 Has Four Vertical Purple Stripes On The Whole Of Its Screen?
My I phone 4 has 4 purple stripes taking up the whole of the screen. This has happened before ( around 2 weeks ago ).I tried powering down and resetting. The phone had plenty of charge on each occasion that this fault appeared.When it happened previously I left it at home for a week whilst I was away on holiday and when I returned the battery had completely discharged itself. I plugged in the charger and switched the phone on and the fault disappeared so I'm hoping the same happens again.

IPhone :: 3GS LCD Screen Is Cracked And It Now Has These Dark Lines Going Across?
I dropped my iPhone as I was cleaning it off. The LCD screen is cracked and it now has these dark lines going across. How much is it to replace it? Would it be cheaper since I have an old 3GS screen that is in perfect condition? I don't live near an Apple store (but willing to make a drive if I can get it fixed while I wait) and don't want to send in my phone to get it fixed.

IPhone :: Battery Usage Screen Have Dashed Lines
In the usage screen under the settings i have dashed lines. Its supposed to show me how long the phone has been active since the last charged and how long its been in standby but i only have dashed lines.
I just got the iphone 3G. Now on my first charge I pretty much used it until it was completely dead and then charged it, during the first charge it showed me the time usage. then on the second charge i used it until about 15-20% and charged 3/4 of the way because i didnt have time to let it fully recharge, then used it until it was completely dead and recharged. so this is my 3rd full charge and I dont get that stat. i hope this makes sense because i wonder whats going on. I would like to use this usage tool to measure amt of time i have left on the battery since there is no percentage representation.

IPhone :: 3GS Screen Full Of White Horizontal Bars / Lines
I purchased my iPhone 3GS on launch day from AT&T. While having a clock repaired, this is when I first noticed the problem, that half of my iPhone's screen was covered with these horizonatal lines that went down the screen from top to bottom. Turning the screen off and back on resolved the issue (at first I thought this was a software issue). Today, while I was in Walmart, the screen does it again. If you let the screen go to sleep and wake it up again, the lines are still there. They stopped, but I am beginning to wonder if this is a hardware issue. I think it is. Naturally I called AT&T and was told that they could not help me and that I would have to call Apple. The closest Apple stores are 3 hours to the east and 2 hours to the west. I have never had a problem like this with the original iPhone or the 3G. I guess I am going to have to take it to the Apple store and have them switch it out. I have never been to an Apple store before.

IPhone :: Can Still Receive Calls But Screen Is Black With Blue Lines
The screen on my iphone 4s has gone balck and sometimes comes up with blue lines, but I cannot get it to reset. I can still receive calls and can hear that the phone is functioning normally (ie. I can swipe the screen as I would normally do to unlock it and I can hear it unlock) but I cannot see any information. Is there a way to reset the display? I have tried holding down the power and home button for 10 seconds with no luck.
