[Q] Do I Need A New LCD?
My wife's T-Mo Sensation 4G started having screen troubles a couple of weeks ago. The screen basically wouldn't turn on, and if you unseated the battery and stuck it back in, you'd see backlight bleed, particularly in the lower left corner, before even turning it on. After some fiddling, the screen sort of came back, first with some vertical banding, and then more normally. Sometimes it looks blotchy, and it almost always flickers, even if auto-brightness is off and set to high. It varies between looking washed out and overly-contrasty. At least once it went black looking like a blob was migrating across the screen.
It went out again last night and is sort of back now, but with the same set of problems. I disassembled and re-seated the LCD cable on the motherboard, but still the same.
Does this sound like an LCD/backlight problem, or something else? If it is likely the LCD, I'd buy a preassembled digitizer/LCD and replace it. If it sounds like something in the system, I'd probably just get her a new phone.
Also, if it is the LCD, anyone recommend a good reseller? RepairsUniverse? Another? Thanks
