    Hey everybody,

    Let me start this by saying I love this phone. I'm using the unlocked international version in the United States. Now. For the weird stuff. (Hopefully you can see the picture) this happened.

    It started out as a very small discovering by the camera button on the bottom right. Is this related to overheating? I also cracked the screen (I won't even get into that catastrophe, who breaks a Nokia screen?) And wonder if that may have triggered it.

    Anyway! I just wondered if I should replace the screen, and if that could fix this from happening again. There is no Nokia center that I know of that will fix the screen so I would have to use a third party screen replacement. That could cost 150-200$ so I want to be as sure as possible before committing to repair the screen.

    Please help fellow windows phone people! I really appreciate any help I can get.

    By any chance, you kept your phone near to Magnet ?

    No, I don't. The area by the camera button has been abnormally hot and I did a factory reset. But yeah, no magnets.

    Is it happened after you cracked the screen or after this area got hit?

    Looks like screen got damaged, not the regular burning in of amoled screens.
    Usually a yellow tint in the corners is related to the adhesive of the glass of the LCD that become visible because of the heat, but this looks like a damage.

    Thanks for the reply,

    It was fine for a couple months after the crack. I noticed an odd coloring in the bottom right on internet explorer one day, and it just started slowly spreading (like I would notice more every couple days)

    I have this exact same issue, and it only started days ago. I didn't damage the phone, it just appeared out of nowhere. Unfortunately I bought mine from Expansys in the US, which means I have no carrier to replace it (not offered) and no Nokia service centers to fix it either. It grows ever so slowly, but steadily. I'm going to go into a MS store to see if there is anywhere they can ship it. Since the 930 isn't sold in the US I doubt they'll offer to replace it though technically it should still have the one year MS warranty. I believed it to be some kind of burn mark since it seems to emanate from the part of the phone that gets the hottest.

    ​I also found this thread and posted in it. http://discussions.nokia.com/t5/Lumi...m/td-p/3002351

    Very weird. There is something the users who got this did the same? Like wireless charging, pressure... Is there a way to find if it's from the same assembly line?
    What back color of the device do you have?
    Did you tried to cool this area using a air condition straight to this place? Any changes?

    Looks like a glue in between layers of touch screen. HTC has problems like that, apple too. Heat is to blame
