N950 display breaking down

My N950’s display started to grow black stripes some weeks ago:

The lines are getting longer and thicker day by day. And now an N950 of a friend of mine started to do the same thing. I wonder if this is happening to all of them?

N9 is the only viable option for me with its own pros and cons. Hopefully it won’t disappear too quickly from the shops..

    Take a look at the current state of the LCD of my N950 http://lockerz.com/s/184388985. Not sure if it is related, but the touch screen has some ‘dead’ zones where it is almost impossible to click.

    My touch screen luckily works still fine.

    Mine did the same thing.. It grew worse and worse over a couple of weeks. Then, over about three days, it got better again. It was weird. I’m not complaining!

      Maybe mine does the same thing :)

    I start to get dead pixels too :( That could be one of the reasons why it didn’t go into mass production.

      It’s hard to say yet but my display might actually have now a couple of broken pixels less than a while ago..

    Mine is doing the same thing :(

      Mine hasn’t got worse anymore and actually the display on my friend’s device has got better. So don’t despair yet :)

        I keep checking it hoping it gets better. Do you happen to know what causes it?

          No idea. Especially because in some cases it seems to get a bit better.

    Just wanted to say “me too”: I found air travel make the dead pixels worse, and then they would “come back” slowly, although after repeated (4 month intervals, so not in rapid succession) trips they’ve mostly stopped regenerating :(

      My display hasn’t got any better. It’s in quite bad shape, although I guess it’s not going any worse either anymore.

    Hello, friend, can you give me some suggestion of how to compile a whole meego image for N9 or N950 from sourcecode?
    I searched and browsed all the materal on google, but only find some material on N900, such as http://repo.meego.com/MeeGo/builds/1.2.90/latest/builddata/image-configs/, but couldn’t find how to build N9 or N950? for only ks files for N900 found in repo.meego. There’re also some web links to desribe how to assmble an image using the already compiled rpms, but that’s not what I’m looking for. I want to learn how to build a N9 from scratch.
    Any body can help me? I can send you one N9 for your helf once it’s proven workable.
    BTW, I’m a fans of meego, and I’ve one N9 and N950. my email is: riverlakezhao@sina.com
