even if it is temperature related, it is obvious there is some internal LCD connection issues, possibly dry jointing, hence why sometimes it works and other times it does not work.

I have never had the white strip issue with my Ux, but then I never use my Ux full brightness unless I need to and only for short periods, then back to mid brightness. Maybe this is the key to UX LCD longevity?

Hi tomn & bigs

I tried it a while ago, there has been no luck. This time has not even started properly the first time. First with colder temps and then I tested with a little cooling base with two DC12V fans. Same result.

I think I'm going to follow your way bigs, never use the UX full brightness unless I need to (probably when working with Photoshop only) and only for short periods. Mid brightness probably it is most advisable to try to extend LCD life. I usually have my N900 phone with lowest brightness.
