Torch 9800

A few days ago, my torch started shutting down. The home screen becomes unclear when I slide the keyboard out. All of the colours mix on the screen so that you cannot see what feature you are in. I took it to a repair shop today and they said they never seen anything like it and wanted to charge me $195 to fix it...Has anyone had anything like this happend b4
