Lines in Dingoo Display
« on: October 30, 2011, 12:27:05 am »
JUST got my Dingoo after a agonizingly long wait from China. Open it up, turn it on.....and there are lines all the way down the right side of the screen.  >:( 



Strangely enough, the lines seem to disappearing on their own. When I first turned it on, I could have sworn there was 4. Turned it off and on a bunch of times and there were 3. (See pic) Kept messing with it and turning it on/off again, now it's down to 2.

Did this happen to anyone else? Will they go away completely?

Or is there ANY way to fix this? If not, I guess I'll return it. And go through the ridiculous wait again. Yay.

Update #2 - I've found that if I press the plastic just to the right of the D-Pad with quite a bit of pressure, the lines disappear. But when I let go, they come back. So I'm thinking it's a bad or loose connection maybe? If I can fix this myself, I have no problems with taking it apart. I'd rather do that than have to wait who knows how long to get a replacement. If anyone has any advice or experience adjusting/replacing screens please let me know!

(I guess that makes this a hardware issue. Mods, feel free to move this to the hardware section)

Couldn't take those obnoxious lines anymore so I took it apart and took the screen out. Just to the side of the left side of the screen, (Not the actual screen but just to the side of it where the ribbon connects) I found the place where if I poked at it, the lines would disappear.  So I taped a small piece of foam rubber over that with a tiny strip of electrical tape. Put it back together and wallah. The pressure from the bit of rubber pressing against the case is enough to keep the lines permanently gone. Well, for now anyway, haha. Still might return it seeing as I don't know if this will be a long term fix or not.

But there you go. If anyone else ever has this problem, you know what to do now, haha.
