    Hi everyone,

    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.

    Thanks!

    As long as the water damage stickers aren't red, I'd just have them replace the phone. Say the screen stopped displaying properly.

    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!
