Right so I have had this problem for a month now and I have rang up repairs centres and never recieved the bags they send out. Its getting close to christmas now and I dont really want it to get lost or something silly!
So I was just wondering if anyone has had the same problem or knows how to fix it?
My screen is being really odd. It started off as when I slid it down inbetween it being slid out and slid down the screen would flash black. I got used to that after a while, as it didn't make the phone any harder to use.
Now sometimes when I slide it up or down, the screen will go totally black and do nothing. I could type stuff and then when it decides to work I can see what I have typed.
It also now sometimes goes multicoloured. Like, when a magnet is near a telly and it goes reds/blues/greens all over the screen. Well it does that every now and then, and is completely not working.
It is driving me mad! I will probably have to send it off, but if anyone has ANY solutions please reply! Thanks

i just sent mine in for repairs it started going a bit odd a week more ago. it does similar as you describe without the colours. the screen goes black and the function buttons wont work or it will open up in phone mode and nothing else then i do a battery pull and opens up ok then , it will go to a half screen when put horinzontal and seemingly freeze. the first instance of a problem showed when playing with my new playbook i did a security wipe in the playbook just testing stuff out and when i went to pair it amd my phone would not recognize the bar code , it said it was not valid after a few battery pulls and sim card pull it finally read it and i was able to pair it up again, second weird ness was camera seemed to have blue purple shadows no matter where i looked to take a picture , i thought maybe was jus a bit cold for the camera and later on the camera seemed ok, and then last night the screen went a deep greyish faded black and all hell went loose i codunt do much so i pulled the battery sim card did a total security on the phone and it seemed to help for a little bit then same thing. so last resort i took off my screen protector thinking maybe i was loosing sensitivity but it did not help. it isbeing sent out for repairs, i do not know the cause of this the retailer looked to see if it had not been in the water and i got this phone in october 2011. i am not impressed
