I got the screen issues on Saturday. Looked like there was a loose connection (i.e. the display would flicker in and out, vertical lines of random color bits, and then go to black with a white horizontal line at the very top being the only thing displayed. I rebooted, removed the battery, nothing helped. Then I removed the SD card and re-inserted it, and all was well.
Have not been able to reproduce it since.
Have any of you who have the flicker problem tried taking out the SD card? Also, did anyone who's flicker problem went away have it come back?
I called VZW and was told the same thing about shipping on the 27th and I would have to ship my phone to them before hand. If it comes back I'll call and see if I have any better options.
Looks like Moto/VZW have confirmed the issue (via engadget):
"Verizon Wireless and Motorola are aware of a very small number of DROID X units that have experienced a flickering or banding display. Motorola has resolved the issue and is continuing to ship the phones. Any consumer who experiences a flickering or banding display should contact a Motorola customer support center or Verizon Wireless."

i know this probably going to sound stupid but it works with mine. mine does the same thing. but do you ever notice that it happens when it is sitting out after a while or when your using it outside. mine always has to be in my pocket or somewhere warm. dont know whats wrong with it but i noticed this when i went skiing and it started doing this. so i figured it was the coldness and it was. again i dont know if this is whats wrong with yours but it was for mine. hope this helps
