    this is all my screen will do
    [​IMG]

    I didn't drop it, hit it, nothing....

    I used it one minute, put it in my pocket, and took it out to answer a phone call. I shut off before i could answer and when i turned it back on i got this screen.

    I've never herd of or seen this before. I doubt it can be fixed but does anyone have an idea?

    Booting in recovery mode results in the same screen.

    I can still receive messages and get a notification light. The home, menu, search and back buttons still light up as well.

    Sounds like a) the printed flex cable that attached the screen to the motherboard is shot; or b) your video memory is toast.

    Probably not fixable, if it's giving you that same screen in recovery it's definitely not an OS issue.

    Well I thought when a phone was discontinued they replaced warranty phones with their upgraded bretheren, so Droid 2 in this case... but if you just got an og a month ago....

    Well I just put a old phone on my account until I make it to the store.

    I did notice that the screen still works as far as touching it...

    It rang and i slid my finger across like normal and it answered the call. If I were to fix it....what would I replace? Does it just sound like the ribbon cable?

    This is my day one release droid and I'm kinda close to it if that makes any sense. I would rather have this one than a referb.

    what do you think... ribbon cable?

    If its a day one did then your warranty is done anyway and you'd be paying assurion for a replacement and you might get a droid 2.

    If it were the cable the touch wouldn't function. Video memory as toast appears to be the verdict.
