Your options are to buy another phone, send the phone to Motorola, or to buy another handset online. I know it can be frustrating but I also know of no way solve the problem.

I have a COBY 40 inch LCD television and the pixels leave a liquid like spot is that pixel damaged? And in the center of the screen is a long black line also pixels is that repairable, estimate cost?

The actual lcd is not repairable. It sounds as if it is damaged. Unfortunately the cost of the lcd is probably more than what the set is worth.

Part of the Screen is white

The LCD(Liquid Crystal Display) is damaged. This happens mostly in laptops from either too much pressure being put put on the case behind the LCD, or a foreign object being on the keyboard platform when the laptop is closed. Any computer store should be able to replace it for you. If you are kindy handy you can change it yourself cheaper and easier than you think. Go to and in the search bar type the model of your laptop(which can be found on the box or the label that will be on the back of the laptop or underneath the battery) with "LCD replacement" right after. After watching what it takes and you want to do it yourself to save some money, find your LCD. My favorite 2 places to obtain laptop screens is either or has a search bar to type in the model of the laptop. on in the search bar, type the model of the laptop with "LCD" right after. depending on the age of the laptop the LCD can usually be purchased for $40-$60. Depending on the shop you take it to, it could cost anywhere from $90-$150.

What is the minimum storage temperature for this LCD TV

I would not let the LCD get too much below 40 F. The liquid crystals may freeze and cause damage to the screen. Most product temp ranges are between 40 and 120 F.

It can be fixed by replacing the screen. The impact from the Wii contoler caused and internal compression. It is pushing the liquid away from that area. You can check with a local repair shop to see if they do LCD replacements, or can file a warranty claim with the manufacturer. Most of the time they will send a sub contractor out to repair your set in home. He will confirm the problem, contact the manufacturer and they will tell him to fix it, or not to fix it. The worst case scenario is that you will have to pay the tech for the in home call if the manufacturer decides not to cover the damage.

Broken lcd screen. it wasnt dropped to my knolege . microsoft states damage claims not covered and 1 week later my friends zune has the same problem . no evidenc eof damage on outside but inside scree

The screen probably broke because of the battery...

It so happens the geniuses at Micro$oft decided to put the battery RIGHT BEHIND THE LCD... Well what happens when things get hot, they expand... So lets charge the battery(which warms up) and rubs right into the LCD... Sorry to hear that you've had this problem, I have been graced by god to not have it happen to either of my 3 units... The only way to keep it from happening is to not overcharge it and to keep the unit cool...

LCD is showing wierd colours and patterns

Sounds like you have damaged the LCD. The LCD is made of 2 sheets of glass and then there is a liquid between the sheets that carry light. Sometimes the glass can crack and the liquid will leak or bleed and then the unit needs a replacement LCD. An impact can crack the glass, dropping it or freezing the unit. A damaged LCD is common because they are so small and thin you cant push on them. A used LCD runs about $40. labor may be a bit more if this is the problem. People buy broken cameras on e-bay it maybe cheaper to get a different unit. If its under warantee you may be able to sxchange it. On the bottom of your camera there is an A/V port you can hook the unit to a tv. To verify the screen is damaged hook it to a tv and see if you can see an image on the tv in record or review mode and see if the LCD and the tv view are the same. You could still use it if the LCD is damaged but you will need another way to view the menu. I have done this
