    Hi guys,

    Been quite lucky to be part of the "2nd most popular" tablet club, after the Ipad. Have been a proud owner of a 16gb touchpad for about 2, coming 3 months now.

    Here's the issue that i have experienced recently.
    Placed the Pad in my bag, and took it out - only to find to my amazement (well it's more of astonishment and shock) to see a big brown ring in the middle of the screen ^ something like that the thread link i have posted above -
    http://forums.precentral.net/attachm...t-img_0127.jpg

    When i switch off the screen by pressing the power button to put it to sleep - it looks exactly like this:

    This ring speads like bubbles in a screen protector, but it's not the screen protector, and gradually fades, till a point where there's like a shade of yellow on the screen.

    It completely disappears after restarting the device. This happened consecutively twice in two days and i'm quite concerned as to what causes it and is my screen spoilt?

    I had the same issue the first day I got my TP. What happened is that I got the TP and set it up, everything was great. I placed it in my backpack, when I got to work and took it out and saw this big watermark looking bubble, I was so upset. I called HP immediately to report what I thought was a defective TP. However, while waiting to talk to a rep, the bubble began to shrink till it totally disappeared. It happened like 2 more times after carrying it in my backpack then I realize that something was pressing on the TP that caused the bubble to appear. Now, I make sure nothing is squeezing the TP and the bubble never returned.

    Ayup, looks like pressure on an LCD screen. You are aware, that the screens contain liquid - hence, Liquid crystal display. You put pressure on them, they do that. Not sure exactly why rebooting it would clear it, unless maybe the voltage jump from on to off and back on maybe causes it to all get sucked back into proper places, or something .. or the black screen while rebooting is there long enough for the effect to fade.

    Since my post you are referencing, it is pressure on the screen that causes the "newton ring". It will go away as the Touchpad warms up.
