    Hi!
     
    I just found my Wiz again and thought I have to fire it up again, to see if it works.

    This is the result.
     
    The pixels look burned or whatever, never seen something like this happen to a display.
    Any idea how I can fix this, or I place I can get it fixed, in Germany?
     
     
    Thanks,
    Quiesdoe

    That's pixel plague - the pixels are dying. You can't fix it. You will need a new screen I'm afraid. Finding a new screen may me difficult and/or expensive though :(
     
    R.I.P.

    I don't think there's anything you can do about it, this is an unfixable issue a lot of Wiz OLED screens had sooner or later - search for "pixel plague".

    OK, thanks. I still have this older developer version of the Wiz, which *might* still have a working display, but I can't get the case
    to open (without breaking it). Maybe I will try later with brute force, as that thing is unusable anyways... I first have to see if the normal
    Wiz is easier to open...
    Is there a disassembly guide somewhere?
