It was not.
The theory was proposed on a different thread.Your
theory involves heat indirectly
causing the changes in the light leakage in the LCD screen by changing the physical properties of the seal; specifically the seal at the bottom of the screen.
(We get it.
So tell us more about this seal.
What does it look like?
What is it made from?
What's it's purpose?
Have you actually looked at one?
I was replying to ult, not you. I didn't see the other thread, so I kept thinking people were thinking that we thought here that the heat caused the leakage. I wasn't trying to patronize anyone. I was just saying what I meant by "cure" because I thought it was the source of the misunderstanding.
I have had this problem on my Sony Clie TG50 screen. The TG50 was known for this "issue", but people seemed to accept it. Yeah, it's much smaller, but I figured it is built similarly. I took it apart once just for fun and saw that the light source was leaking from the front of the LCD screen along the bottom edge. I could see a black border along the bottom, but couldn't get to it because it was behind the front "glass" and the LCD panel was sealed. Looks like hard plastic, and the light leakage was very evenly spaced out. If you want to see what it looks like, go here: http://www.brighthand.com/images/Son...Rev_Screen.jpg
Didn't want to risk losing my PDA, so I left it alone. So yes, I have looked at one. But no, I don't know what it's made from. It's just a THEORY for why the light leakage might improve over time.
