MSP 16 Discoloured Pixels

Postby Sykosan » Sat 15. Dec 2018, 13:15

I have had a strange issue with the screen of my MobileStudio Pro 16. Twice already.
I have had it fixed but I want to prevent it from happening again.
If someone can help that would be great.
The problem is a slow spread of discolored pixels across the screen of the tablet.
At first it is very faint and only visible when the screen is displaying black. With time the amount of discoloured pixels increases and they get brighter and brighter. It is like a disease spreading through the screen. It takes weeks and months to get bad but after 6 months of use it becomes a real issue. I attached some pictures to show the problem I had.
Now that I have had my screen replaced, I don't want this to happen again.
Does anyone know how this happens and how to prevent it?
PS: My feeling is that there is some kind of build up of dust inside the screen which interferes with the pixels. However I don't work in a dusty environment. Just a regular office. Maybe some electrostatic effect?

I wish there is something I can recommend to avoid this but unfortunately, it is something that might happen regardless. Just be sure to contact support if you see this issue again.
