Just to add here: i have one of these Nokias with the broken LCD
(vertical stripes). Actually i don't even believe that the LCD is
broken, it looks like a wrong setting of the LCD (with the old HP pocket
calculators you could tweak the contrast by pressing ON and +/-). But
for the Nokia there is no LCD hardware info available, no data sheet,
and so the recommended solution is to send the many "broken LCD" gadgets
in for repair. Costs lots of money. And maybe they are all broken
indeed. But i would really be glad if it would be possible to understand
the hardware and to tweak control registers of the LCD. All this stuff
is closed-source, and i can't see a benefit for the Nokia engineers by
this policy.
