Mottled and fading screen
« on: February 01, 2017, 09:42:12 pm »
As time goes by the screen seems to be becoming mottled and faded... I don't think it will last much longer ...

Can one purchase new screens?

@ anwar.shiekh,

No, we don't have an option to purchase the touch screen, however, you could reach our support team to see, what best could be done. We would need the proper purchase details though.

I have located two different screens that look like replacements, and since they are just over $10 each I have ordered both to try.

the following

works fine. Correction, there is some image persistence associated with this new screen;
I have a second screen (different model) on the way, but it will take time.

A few days in place, and the problems seem to have disappeared.

I believe the problem is caused by the protective front panel de-laminating from the lcd screen (a manufacturing issue);
I may have aggravated the situation by having the weather app up 24/7

Two screws on the bottom and some clips that need pressing on the top to open the case. Ribbon cable lock needs to be flipped up; rest is easy.

But first check if it is still under warrantee.
