The back-light on my Desire HD screen randomly goes out, the screen is still on and if you look hard enough you can still see the image on the screen. If I put a little pressure on the screen, usually at the bottom by the HTC logo blow the menu button. it comes back on but often goes right back out if if I don't maintain the pressure.

Anyone know how to fix this? I'm guessing that it's just a little bit of soldering that's loose. I really don't want to get rid of this phone so any help would be great appreciated.

not that terrible
if you use your phone for a longer time you now without looking on it where the hardware keys are located so it is not that bad

just use your phone

What? I'm sorry but that makes no sense (no pin intended). How am I supposed to use the phone when you can't even see the screen?

I only get that when using my phone as a GPS with Google maps. It's frustrating. It also doesn't happen everytime, but it did yesterday.

Yeah it really sucks. I just tried a hard shell case hoping that would put enough pressure on the phone to stop this issue but it didn't work. I guess I've reached on the end of the line with my Desire HD. Sucks 'cause I really was looking forward to running ICS on it.

Anybody know of any Desire HD "tear down" guides online? Something to help guide in the taking about of the phone. I want to look inside and see if I can't find the loose connection and fix it.

Edit to add:

Found a pretty decent one on youtube
