    The display on my Garmin E-Trex Legend GPS is unreadable, having lines through it. It looks like a shaken up, half erased etch-a-sketch screen. Its intermittent, but becoming more frequent. My unit is about 5 years old.

    Any advice?

Multiple lined screens appear after start up. the screen is unreadable that happened after windows checked for start up problems

this is 9/10 the actual screen itself going faulty, Please try the unit on an external monitor, if you can, and see if that too has the problem, if NOT that means your Video Card is most likely OK, and it is the LCD, and.or the LCD drive and Inverter boards, that are faulty. it is not too expensive a repair, beats buying a new laptop. get a "Quote" before starting any repair..

Problem on the main display screen on my Nokia 6085

Sounds like a bad lcd flex cable, i fixed mine by ordering the part from an international parts carrier, but if you are not technically inclined to open up your phone and possibly destroy it, i would not recommend it.

I have the pearl blackberry, on my bbm its showing that i have unread messages but when i go to click on them theres nothing there.

There may be an unread email somewhere in your inbox. If you click the menu button when in the mail section there is a "mark all unread messages read (or something similar)." This should clear up your unread message count on your "Today" screen.

Dark unreadable screen

If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
