[Help] S4 Screen Flickers When the Phone is cold?

Hey friendly members of XDA,

My phone started to flicker recently and I could not figure out why it does this...
http://youtu.be/uhSOd6tlVgw

I did not have any water damage or physical damage to my phone but it started doing this randomly. When my phone gets colder, the screen starts to flicker, then half of the screen flickers with a yellow hue, then after a while the screen will be yellow. Also, while the phone is cold, the screen will not turn on. (I failed to show this in the video). Is there something I can do to fix this?

When I warm my phone up with my hands, the flickering goes away and everything goes back to normal.


Thank you,
Jerry

Sounds like a graphical blobs problem but I don't how internal temperature could affect that.

What should I do? My phone is still under warranty. Should I send it in?

Since your phone is still under warranty, you'd better send it to Samsung after-sales department for checking. Maybe it is free!

It's up to you but I probably would. If something physical is affecting your phone then there's some type of hardware issue with your phone. Unfortunately xda can only help with software.

If I plan to ship it back, I have to revert it back to stock right? Or is there another procedure?

You can use one of the Odin files for your phone, there on here . If you're sending it in just grab the mj7 or mk2 one and your good

I'm sorry but could you point me to the direction in which I could do so?
