    Melted 8100 Pearl Screen!

    The Screen (lcd) Melted On A 8100 Pearl Screen, But The Device Still Works!

    The Top Layer Of The Lcd Screen Completley Peeled Off, It Was Quite A Sight To See. Saying That We Booted The Device And Could Make Out The Hour Glass Spinning Around!!

    If You Ever Have To Change One Of These, Be Very Careful, It Is Held Into Place By Some Sort Of Sticky Tape Or Glue And Is Not As Easy As Previous Models To Replace.

    Hahaha! Melted screen?
    My screen is all scratched up, can I use the same procedure that you used to remove and replace it?

    yes, be very careful when replacing the LCD, it can crack very easily.
    I would advise you to gently pry off the screen using a sharp prying tool.

    Wow, that looks bad. Did a firefighter own that phone? I wonder how easy or hard it would be for that to happen during use, esp in extreme environments. But either way it's a good testament to durability if the screen melts but the phone still works.
