    For the past few months, seemingly randomly and regardless of theme, OS version or the phase of the moon, my Bold's screen turns into a mosaic pattern.

    To be more specific, if I have left it locked for more than 30 minutes*, when I unlock it I see one of two things happen, sometimes both happen:

    1) The entire screen goes bright white and I have to press random buttons to see the normal screen.
    2) The centre of the screen appears, but the outside edge and inwards about 2cm all around turns into a mosaic. The best description I can give would be to owners of old Sinclair Spectrum computers - the game loading screen! Again, I need to randomly press a few buttons, usually the Escape key, to get a normal display back.

    Also, when I plug headphones in, there is a small chance they aren't recognised and music comes out of the speaker still. I find inserting the headphone jack slowly can remedy that.

    Apart from that it works fine. Anyone know what could be up with my Bold?

    Cheers

    *PS it seems the longer it's locked the more reliably I can reproduce the beahviour, but not always.

    Hmm, that doesn't sound so good... any water damage? If not, any warranty or insurance? That sounds like failing hardware. If you use JL_Cmder, CrackUtil, or MCP, can you take a screenshot? If so, does the screenshot match what you are seeing, or does it show what you SHOULD be seeing?

    Hey, thanks for the reply. I will try and use MCP, but it doesn't appear to work with Windows 7 so I'll need to wait until I get home and find an XP installation. I would imagine the same goes for JL_Cmder or CrackUtil but haven't really got the time right now to find out

    No, there is no water damage. I am pretty confident you could pass my device off as virtually brand new, there is no damage, just a few tiny scuff marks around the USB socket. I keep my Berry pretty clean and tidy

    Cheers again.
