Default Blackberry 8520 LCD replacement issue

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, I have a problem with a Blackberry Curve 8520 screen that I have replaced. The original screen had a bottle of perfume dropped on it so the LCD smashed. I bought a replacement screen from eBay, fitted it and it works but the quality of the display is not as good as the original. The icons and text look a bit pixelated and the colours are slightly faded. It's like when you copy an image off a website and then zoom into it a bit on your computer. It makes the phone unusable.

I decided to order another screen from a different seller on eBay but have exactly the same problem. I don't believe it is a problem with the motherboard as presumably it would not work at all but it seems strange that both new screens would behave like this. Has anybody come across this before? I just cannot work it out.

Many thanks.
Gareth

Sounds like you're buying cheap knock-off screens. Try one from a reputable OEM seller: Écran LCD OEM pour BlackBerry Curve 8520/8530 -007/111 - - Cellular Accessories | Mobile
