    Firstly just like to say hi to all & cracking little forum you have here... Right here goes...

    I have a Nokia lumia 900 that seems to have a mind of its own,,firstly it started vibrateing
    on its own until soft reset,secondly it started flickering with vertical lines.. now it will boot up
    but only showing pixelated pic... as in half of screen with nothing on just blue....
    So thought ok got to be the screen so ordered a new one which turned up today but still doing
    exactly the same any ideas???,, also tried hard reset but still the same... will try and get a pic
    on of the screen as I think you`ll understand me a bit easier!!!... Thanks......
    Couple of pics......

    Unfortunately I don't think you can do anything about that if changing the screen didn't help...

    Well after thinking well balls to it my phones knackered, I had one more thing
    to try???.
    Having repaired a few xboxs in my time I thought hey what the hell why not try
    a reflow on the pcb because obviously that's where the problem was...
    Well got the hot air gun out and intrickitly heated the board up to solder melting
    point.. (what ever that is)...Being careful not to melt the ribbon point slots and other
    plastic bits.
    After about 2mins either side I left it to cool & here`s the result.....

    She`s Alive!!!!
