Default 8130 Screen Issues

Please Login to Remove!

I've noticed over the course of the last two weeks that I have several large vertical lines of "dead pixels" on the screen of my 8130, and I was curious if anyone else has noticed something similar.

To be honest, the pixels aren't "dead" they just are distorted, so that it looks like there are (in my case) 3 vertical lines that stand out on the screen, almost like scratches but the light from the screen shifts when you turn it slowly from side to side, so I'm guessing its a defective screen or something.

I'm really bumming, as I don't want to take the device back to exchange it (considering all my friends now have this PIN and I just changed 2 weeks ago) but its fairly annoying and to top it off, seems to be getting worse.

Anyone else seen or experienced this with their 8130 so far?

You can back all your stuff up on your computer.
