    I Fixed the White Screen of Death!!!!

    To make a along story short, it was the LCD screen itself.
    Before this I tried EVERYTHING- re-installing the OS numerous times, jeffallens8's write-up on insulating the metal trim from the motherboard- NOTHING worked... so I pretty much gave up on it... fast forward to the present.... I found a Pearl on that auction site that had what seemed to be OS issues, so I put in a bid and I won... well I couldn't bring that Pearl back to life, but for the fun if it I swapped the LCD with the one that was all white, and it worked like a charm!!!!! So I have my backup Pearl after all!!!

    I like happy endings....

    Now you may choose to go with a new replacement, but if you decide to use one from a donor Pearl, here's something to watch out for:

    The LCD screens do not have much flex in them- I found this out the hard way, luckily it was the one that was already damaged- and the adhesive backing that keeps them attached to the motherboard is VERY sticky.... this a step you cannot rush through AT ALL... TAKE YOUR TIME HERE!
    Also, try to do this in an enviroment that is CLEAN; the inside of the lens screen on the body is also held in place with adhesive, and it picks up dust and lint very easily...

    Good luck to all that should try this, and of course, do so only at YOUR own risk....
