    Question 7130g Screen Flicker

    Advertisement



    To anyone with any flavour of the 7130:

    Have you noticed the screen flickering?

    In detail: Not that it turns on/off, but that the intensity of the backlight appears to flicker.



    I've had my 7130g for just under 2 months, and I first noticed this about 3 weeks ago, and since then it has become more frequent and for longer periods of time.

    No, I have not added any new apps.
    No, I have not installed a new OS not supported by my carrier. In fact, it's got the OS that came pre-installed.
    No, I have not dropped or abused it in any way (doesn't even have a scratch!).

    Yes, I have rebooted and pulled the battery. (That occurs almost daily when I swap the SIM to use in a Moto V60 for cycling/going to the gym.)

    Yes, it happens at all levels of brightness.

    My dealer told me to call customer service and have them suggest a fix, or replace it. (I doubt they will replace it without a fight!)

    Thanks for the help!

    That was pleasant! Less than 25 minutes from the time I picked up the phone to dial through to having the confirmation ticket # that I will get a replacement BB from Rogers.

    Wow!!!!

    I am surprised!

    But after I explained what was happening, the rep didn't even suggest that it would be software or a reboot or some other irrelevant nonsense.

    I am now satisfied.

    And, there was also 1 dead pixel on the screen from when I first turned it on. It was kind of annoying because it was always blue, and it would stand out from time to time while doing different things.

    I have seen the "flicker" your are talking about, but never on my BB. I have seen it with many many other Sprint-Nextel phones.
