    All of the sudden my phone has a green tint, sometimes it goes back but when I lock/unlock it goes back to green. I think overheating caused it? How do I fix it?

    If you overheated the phone enough to damage the video chip or screen, then I'm not sure there's anything you can do short of replacing it.

    It's weird, everything except the borders are green, sometimes it's reversed where only the borders have a green part. It randomly comes on and off whenever I lock/unlock my phone. How much would it cost to replace the LCD? I don't think warranty will cover it since I have dropped my phone in the past and it has some scratches(But the last time I dropped my phone was months ago, this problem only happened recently so I doubt it's drop damage)

    You could try turning off the auto brightness feature and try setting the brightness to medium it high to see if that removes the green tint

    I lost my Lumia 710 to the green tinting problem, too. Finally created an account here to mention it. T-Mobile was insultingly unhelpful (the people in the stores were great, but they aren't allowed to help with hardware problems and I had to deal with horrible call center people who basically drove me away from using T-Mobile ever again). The good news is that Nokia was very polite and helpful and fixed it for me in about a week, extremely fast turnaround. I would consider buying another Nokia phone after being treated so well during a problem.
    However, I sold the phone on eBay when Tmobile wouldn't unlock the phone for me despite it having been six months after I bought it outright from them and the store having told me when I bought it outright that unlocking was allowed after an initial period. I miss Windows Phone and expect to go back at some point. I don't know if the 710 has reliability troubles or if I was just unlucky. I never abused it. A friend's 710 is going strong and he admits to being a bit rough with it. Good luck 710 owners everywhere, I enjoyed having a smaller phone instead of those surfboard-type large ones.
