    So I got a refurb from Sprint last night, and the new screen looks weird- it almost looks like there's a screen protector on it, causing "sparkly/rainbowy/pixely" looks on the screen... Almost like when a normal LCD screen gets dirty or dusty..

    The only thing is, is it's not external- I just wiped the screen and it's still there.. Maybe it's on the inside? I'm not sure.. Anyone know how to get rid of this? It's really annoying especially on a white screen like FB or e-mail.

    Thanks!

    If wiping it off doesn't do anything.. Call sprint or return the device for another. There are plenty refurbish for you to get a good one.


    Good luck.

    There is an oil like liqiud between the LCD screen and digitizer. When the to halfs are separated and put back to geather it will cause rainbowing. Sounds like your refurb had a screen issue. When they refurbed it they messed with the screen. If the liqiud isn't perfectly even through out, the rainbowing will appear.

    Its like putting a screen protecter on and attempting to remove bubbles. But, worst cause its liqiud and the digitizer is ridged (ribed).

    I agree with RUSH, return it. They won't give you a problem. They seem good about replacing refurbs.

    Good luck.

    I received one like that a while back and if you lok at the right angle you can tell it was on the outside and there were very small bumps on the screen like an "orange peel" effect...well at least on mine
