    Hey Team,

    A line has appeared running top to bottom (or is that bottom to top!!!! :cool: ). It won't go away at all. Is this the beginning of the end of the display? I've tried restarting the tab but it still there. During the update I could see it as well.

    Any ideas on how to clear it?

    Cheers
    Paul

    That's a fault with the LCD panel. One of the transformers controlling that line of pixels has failed. This isn't fixable short of replacing the LCD.

    Thanks

    That's what I was afraid of, bugger.

    Oh well, hopefully it won't get any worse.

    There's no way to be certain. It may get worse, but it may not. I'd look into buying one off ebay that has a damaged digitizer and replace the LCD that way. It's likely you only have one manufacturer for your LCD, unlike my device which has at least three.
