Default Touchpad screen corrupt with lines

Hi,

One out of the two 32GB touchpad has had this weird series of lines going across one section of the screen since day one. It appeared intermittently in the beginning but now it has gotten worse. I used to be able to just turn the screen off and on and it would go away but now it won't anymore. The touch sensor still works over the area where the lines are. Just checking to see if anyone knows what the root of the problem is and whether replacing the digitizer will correct it? Thanks.

I would say its a problem with the LCD screen, not the digitiser. Each can be replaced independently of the other, just so ya know

Thanks. I know it could be one or the other. I wanted to try to narrow it down so I won't have to buy both.
