    I just got my new Droid X yesterday. So far I really like it. My previous phone was a Storm. This morning, not even 24 hours, my screen went all black. I can barely make out the outlines of widgets while tilting it in the light.

    I pulled the battery to reboot and still have the same problem. The screen is black. I can hear the audible sounds and the buttons light up. I can even take it off screen lock, but it's still black.

    It's a real bummer since I have to probably send it back for a replacement. I had updated it last night and only added a couple apps and removed some.

    It's pretty difficult to see to do a factory reset... I'll attempt it. I can barely see outlines on the screen.

    "A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

    Only the Skilled Survive

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

    Drill Sergeant Frick's Rules For Un-armed Combat.
    1. Never be unarmed.
    2. See Rule #1

    USMC rule # 23 of gunfighting: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet."

    Off topic, but I love it.

    The backlight went out. Had the same problem with my 1st DX, As long as it wasn't water damage, they should replace it with no problem.
