Bruise like mark on LCD screen, just appeared out of nowhere

So I go to my memory screen and all of a sudden out of the blue I notice this like bruise like dark spot on my screen in the white area, I just got this phone, but I bought it off ebay and It was not there just a few hours ago. I am furious about this it just happened out of nowhere I didn't drop the phone I didn't knock it or anything I don't know what to do if I can send it on for warranty with HTC or if I have to get total protection with sprint and then send it in and how much is that going to be 50 or 100 dollar deductible ?

Any advice would be great, I seemed to have made it a bit smaller by rubbing hard on the screen but I cant get it to go away.

Re: Bruise like mark on LCD screen, just appeared out of nowhere

well ebay is always a gamble..did u make sure there wasnt a screen protector on it and the bruise looking mark is some thing on/under the protector? just saying i've gone threw a cpl of screen protectors thinking aww damn my phone has a screen problem only to remove the protector and seeing it was a prolem with it not the screen itself.

Re: Bruise like mark on LCD screen, just appeared out of nowhere

Re: Bruise like mark on LCD screen, just appeared out of nowhere

well I use metro pcs so I have no idea how warranty works lol.. but if I were you I'd get a warranty deal with the bruise for a cpl of days afterwords..then try and get a replacement.. if possible. Oh and complain to the guy on ebay if you havent left him/her positive feedback yet.. maybe they can replace it for you...I'm just very very very thankful as a metropcs guy with a touchpro I havent had any issues since warranty doesnt cover me that would sooooo suck after paying $300 for the phone $45 for the flash.. paying a friend to unlock and hook it up and teach me how to flash roms and metro pcs's settings.. if my phone goes bad I'm out a gold bar and would have to go back to some cheap cheap metro phone since I got laid off lol

Re: Bruise like mark on LCD screen, just appeared out of nowhere

This is a common problem i had this on my touch pro too about a month after i got it. Is it kind of a rainbow looking blotch on the screen in the center?
Im pretty sure this is a problem with the adhesive on the screen and who ever you take it to should replace it no problem. This is a common problem.

Re: Bruise like mark on LCD screen, just appeared out of nowhere

Sorry to hear that bro, hope it works good for ya. Yah I have not left the guy feedback yet I was complaining about a tiny tiny scratch and it was missing some stuff from the box he said I could send it back but I just want a working phone ugh. I dunno what to do if someone can chime in and let me know if I can just bring it to sprint for a replacement I am gonna keep it but I hate dealing with returns with ebay. I am sooo disappointed man

Re: Bruise like mark on LCD screen, just appeared out of nowhere

It's actualley not rainbow its a dark spot I can see it most clearly on a white background it was not even there earlier today it just came outghta nowhere for no reason I wasnt charging it wasnt using it nothing. Do you think sprint will take care of it if I go to a store ? or do I need the TEP for that ? or am I screwed cause I got it on ebay ? I mean I wont tell them that obviously but I just dont know what to do now.

I am going to flash everything back to stock tonight and relock it and try to go to the sprint store tomorrow.

Re: Bruise like mark on LCD screen, just appeared out of nowhere

So I got my phone all back to stock and I ran the relocker program on it so I think I am all back to normal. I am going to try to go to a sprint store today does anyone have any additional suggestions before I take the plunge today ?
