Black spots on the screen of bold 9700

i have been using a Bold 9700 for the past 1.5 years, and it has not given me much trouble so far. Recently, I have having a few problems with the screen. All of a sudden, a small black patch appeared on the bottom left side of the screen.It seemed the pixels stopped working at that portion, leadig to a blackout. However, after a couple of days the screen was working fine again. It worked properly for a good 1-1.5 months. Now, the black spot re-appeared but this time on the top left side of the screen. Has anyone else faced this problem??? Does anyone have any idea what exactly is happening, and how can I solve this problem??? Thanks

Re: Black spots on the screen of bold 9700

It happened to me too. The first time, I was sunbathing and my phone was under my t-shirt, so it wouldnt get direct sunlight. After ~30min I picked it up and it had a black mark on the right side. I thought the pixels had died because of the sun heat. The next day I noticed the the mark was smaller and it got smaller in the days after, until it disapeared. The black mark appeared again in the next year, after a plane flight, I think this time was because of the air pressure. The mark disapeared after a few months.

Two months ago, another black mark appeared on the same spot as the other 2. This one got bigger 2 days ago, after leaving the phone resting inside my car, on a hot day, not subject to direct sunlight, just a hot environment.

 

I have no idea what this is, but it irritates me, since I cant see what's behind the it.
