Display screen is losing pixels, not even legible anymore
I have three of these phones, and all three have displays that are becoming illegible as they lose pixels. Apparently GE has lowered the quality on their products. Looks like it's time to buy from some other manufacturer.
Re: Display screen is losing pixels, not even legible...
2 of my 3 have done the same thing. It seemed to have happened after our power went out, although they werer all plugged into surge protectors. Now over time since thne they barely have any display at ALL. Cheap junk, say I.

Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screens use less energy and display a clearer picture than the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) displays that preceded them. These new LCD screens now dominate the computer monitor market. From time to time, however, pixels can become stuck and a green line can display on the screen. Removing this line is sometimes possible without sending the screen to the manufacturer for expensive repair.
TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

There is probably a false or intermittent contact at the display end. If the problem were in the generated signals, the whole display would be affected. A problem always in the same area of a LCD display usually means either the Berg strip or (if you're lucky) the driver cable has come slightly loose.
Since you've already opened the thing, I guess warranty considerations no longer apply. In the case of the Berg strip, perhaps the best home-made remedy is to get a strip of soft silicon foam or adhesive soundproofing, and place it against the strip so the non-adhesive area, once the screen has been reassembled, presses DELICATELY the strip against the display, preventing it from losing contact again.
Another, sadder possibility is that the driver lines inside the monitor went awry (this would explay why the screen reacts to power surges). In such a case there's unfortunately no solution, not even the "display massage" that sometimes fixes "stuck" pixels.
Most LCD monitors have a default refresh rate of 60 Hz. Older monitors also have limited resolution. Please check your display settings and ensure you're not using a refresh rate higher than 60, or a resolution higher than what it supports. If either one is the case, you're lucky the LCD still works.
Hi, Connect the laptop to the TV and use the keyboard toggle to switch screens. Once the display is shown on the the TV go to the control panel and select display, set the screen resolution to 1024x768 and your display should be fine. If you need anymore help or advice please post back.
Your display circuit is broken, even if the LCD-panel,
seems to be ok the display is damaged.
This is a very common problem in Nokia phones.
The only way to fix this is to change the display.
You need a T-5 or 6 Torx Skrewdriver to do the job.
You can find displays for fair price at :

i have the same problem. i go through it everyday.
but when my phone does it. i either hold down the joystick, or the delete button, and it puts away the lines for a slight bit. be careful when sliding it down though, sliding it down hard can also cause the lines to show up.
