    Recently Ive been having some screen display problems and was wondering if it was the old lcd cables that are causing the trouble. I got my pandora ~March. Near the end of the video the screen becomes all funky green/white though what is weird is that I heard that the old lcd cables cause a purple tint of death though I don't really see any purple :\

    should I send it in for repair?

    The problem is nicknamed the "Purple Tint of Death" because that's what it primarily comes with, and what the first cases all had. However, other colours have been observed, and in some cases (such as that of my previous Pandora) there is no tint at all but instead a sudden failure (with the exact behaviour shown in your video).


    In short, it's as Alerino says. Send it in. :p

    And prepare to wait for it, because ED is currently working on reorganization, see details in news subforum.

    Is Ed still replacing the older LCD cables or is there some where else I can send it too?
