Question Screen Problem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi:

I just noticed on my pearl's screen that there is an oval sort of "burn in" on the screen. It seems to be right where the magnet is in my BB holster. Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so, is it possible that the magnet caused this?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I thought the magnet in the holster corresponded with a spot lower on the device, like around the bottom of the keyboard....?

Where on the screen is the mark? Top right/left, bottom right/left, etc.

I think i may have found what did this to my screen, I am on vacation and went on a fast ride with my son. While on the ride, my BB was on my belt and was being pushed pretty hard into the side of the car each time we made fast turn, i had a freakin indent on my side when i got off the ride..

Anyways, i presume if the screen is pushed hard enough, it can cause a blur, spot or whatever you want to call it???

Thanks.
