    Thumbs down Dust in my screen! Any suggestions?

    Advertisement



    This sucks to say the least. I carry my Pearl in my pocket. I've had no problems with this, except that a fine layer of lint or dust gathers under the battery cover after a few weeks. I've been spraying it out occasionally with compressed air with no problem. But today, after I replaced the battery cover and flipped it around, I noticed several specks of dust inside the screen.

    I tried spraying it again from different angles to try to move the dust to the outside of the screen, but it's stubborn. Anybody had any luck getting rid of screen dust, or am I stuck with it?

    If it makes you feel any better - I carry my 8700 in the holster and somehow wound up with particles beneath the screen. I've had little luck using an air compressor - but I can't seem to eliminate all of it at one time.

    I was gonna suggest using a hammer to remove the dust.
    J/K DON'T!!!!
    You most likely stuck with it or if you are so inclined you could take it apart
    There have been a few posts about taking these things apart
    good luck

    If you bring your BB to a service center the cleaning costs $15, with ESRP or NSP Service Plan the cleaning is free. Just bring it in with a good attitude and maybe they will do it for free.

    Or tell 'em I sent you and they better do it for free, lol

    You're saying take it to a TMobile service center?

    Let me get this straight. I just say, "antx16 sent me." and they'll do it for free?

    I bought an extended warranty for it that covers almost anything. I'm trying to decide if it's worth the hassle of exchanging it for a few dust specks.

    T-Mobile stores won't pull it apart to clean it. You can have it exchanged under warranty. It's not too common so yours probably has a bad seal.

    yea i have some dust/lint under my screen. It hasn't gotten bad enough to take it apart.
    where are these service centers that clean them? I've never even heard or seen them.

    You know, in real-life use, I can't see the dust unless I'm squinting sideways at it. When the screen is lit up, it very nearly disappears. When the screen goes blank, I can see probably three specks, one of which is large enough to draw my attention. In fact, if the large one wasn't there, I would have never noticed the small ones.
    And since I can only see the dust when the screen is blank, who cares? I mean, why should I sit around, staring at my blank screen, and feeling that nagging feeling that my Pearl somehow isn't good enough anymore? Why?!

    I'll just tell myself that there are no specks. Just like Neo and the spoon.

    There are no specks.

    I love my Pearl, and there are no specks.

    you're a strong guy, Jason.

    I am too neurotic about my pearl to live day by day with that dust sitting under there... mocking me... CHEWING INTO MY SCREEN!

    *resettles* phew, better you than me.
