Flickering white..then nothing!!
Was just cleaning the back cover on my Bold with a very slightly damp (not wet) cloth. I turned the Bold around to see a flickering white screen with a grey mark at the top. Then after a few minutes, nothing! Totally off.
I've tried all the obvious and when I press keys I hear the dialing tone so the phone must still work. The screen gave a white flash once as I was pressing keys.
What has happened????????????? Too much pressure on the screen?
Also ever since I got it, if you put pressure on the screen you'd see a temporary white spot, a bit like a TFT monitor.

Took it too a small shop here I would have never found on my own. Guy had it open in seconds, fiddled around a bit and used what I think was alcohol. Screen came back on! He said it was water damage. The grey mark is still there when you are on a white screen but I think it has faded a bit.
Thanks for the help!
