Default Display/GPU Help Needed

hi guys
i have a c6683 zu and have some annoying display problems
when i unlock the screen it gets vertical colored lines and then goes blank
i have to lock-unlock a few times to get to the homescreen
i've read that it's a sony software&hardaware issue
some broken update from them unlocked full frequency of the GPU and now it's messed up
is there a workaround?
i have the official .136 firmware
PLS HELP ME

hi
thx for the reply
i flashed the stock rom kernel
from what i.ve been reading
sony via a broken update unlocked the gpu at it.s max speed making it unstable and causing this problem
one solution in my opinion would be to flash the stock rom that came from the factory
but i can.t find it anywhere
an other possible solution would be to write a custom kernel that would lock the gpu speed but i.m not a dev and i really don.t know how to do that
any sugestions?

You are the first person I've seen with the problem on here, so I dont think it is a wide spread problem

ROM:- Carbon
Kernel:- Pimped Kernel

Thankyou to all those that have donated to me over 2014.
