I have 2 years old OneX. Everthing was going fine. And suddenly I started to have some yellow spots on the screen at two places. I ignored them. Then problem increased. Now whenever I unlocked the phone my screen used to jump around. Like bottom portion of the display used to come at top etc etc. And their were pink glitches everywhere black colour was supposed to come (i.e. black color appeared pink).

I changed the rom to see if it solved the problem. Now, its getting worse.

Now i cant turn the screen on. I push power button and screen does not show. I get a call and screen does not light up and I randomly push the accept button (I know where accept button comes) to recieve the call.

The only way to make the screen come alive is by pressing the back of the phone. I push the back few times here and there and voila, screen comes on. But thats not the solution. I tried to locate the exact position where pressing the back makes the screen work. But cant locate it. Location is random.

So should I open my phone to check if there is any faulty cable or what ? Or is my phone dying ? I cant afford a new phone..

If you don't have warranty you can open it up. It's already almost not working anyway so what's there to loose ? Maybe it's just a connector which needs a little push....maybe it's the display + digitizer/mainboard.

I found the problem and its solution... I will have to gather enough courage to open up my phone...
Temporary solution is twisting the phone.
