    Exclamation Is my screen broken or is it something worse?

    Hey ya'll,

    So after I replaced my keypad I put the 9000 back together and when it started to turn on the picture was not clear. It was flashing between fluorescent green and the actual loader screen. I took it apart earlier today to see if it was simply a connection issue and the result is in the video.

    I am not sure if I simply broke the screen or if I somehow screwed up the main-board.

    Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    *Both videos are of the boot sequence and the screen acting up.
    **Sorry for the terrible video quality... I do not own a decent digital camera.


    Cheers.

    I don't know how to say this without sounding like a shill or an alarmist. You need to send your berry out for repair, you can't get warranty work done as you have already opened the case. You could try replacing the lcd, but if that does not work, you will have paid for an lcd that you can't use. Try sending it to get repaired first.

    Thanks for the reply. Do you have any suggestions of suitable repair shops or how I am to go about finding one? I did a quick Google search for some around my area and I came up with nothing.
