    I bought my phone for about 1-2 months ago, and since a few days ago, I got a slight light leak at the bottom left corner of the screen. It's definitely appeared now, because I checked my screen after buying the phone for light leak issues (I had light leak issue with my 520, that's why I checked it) and didn't have any. If I press the screen edge where the light leak is, then the light leak dissappears until I keep pressing it. My only idea is that the glue got loose there or something...

    My question is, should I try the "hair dryer" method to fix this?

    Can't you get it repaired under warranty?
    The only problem with the 'hair dryer' method is what if you loosen glue somewhere else on the screen?
    I personally wouldn't.

    Well, I could, but I don't really want to send it into service for weeks... (I had to do the same thing with my 520 when I got it, for the same issue... ._.)
    I hoped that I can fix this somehow quickly. :/
    Thanks for your reply.

    Btw is it common to a phone to get light leak after some time and not immediately when it comes out from the factory?

    I have only had the light leak issue once after owning at least 10 phones. That was on the 520 after two years of abuse. It got dropped numerous times and survived an infant/toddler without a case ever being put on (the only phone I skipped on buying a car for). I would think it is not normal but I may have just been lucky.

    Something like this would sandwich the phone and put some even pressure on the display and might correct it http://www.amazon.com/Phonelicious%C...pUvbUpU3384592

    I sent my 640 out and it came back unfixed with new problem. I will avoid that as a last resort. maybe even some folded paper behind the back cover under where the light leak is.

    the screen is held into the plastic frame (which is independent of the battery cover) by two-sided tape. You guy the hair dryer treatment in that area, then apply pressure, to see if it sticks it back down. That is the easiest and least intrusive option.
