    Looks great!

    Any other info to add? Did they set the expectation that this is a permanent fix or something that will be need to be redone at some point? Goodwill or warranty?

    I knew about that, but I wanted him to confirm they used the ‘healing’ process as opposed to replacement, since the are still some random replacements occurring.

    If this does err 'fix it', for some reason I'm thinking of the movie Awakenings as the final outcome :(

    Still looks like there is faint yellow. It's MUCH better, but doesn't look 100%

    Anyone else notice that after the screen is fixed, it seems to be unevenly backlit? Like there is a hot spot in the middle, and the edges are dark?

    That's an optical effect of the phones wideangle camera combined with an lcd screen.

    Edit: Wonder if they use a UV gun like the dentists do to cure certain implants...

    If it is an optical effect, why doesn't the before pic look like that too?

    Before and after pix were taken at different angles. Taking pictures of LCD screens is always problematic. Take a picture of a perfectly functioning LCD screen and you’ll probably get a different looking picture each time you try. I certainly have.

    I think the owner will be the most reliable source of information for how it actually looks post fix.

    Might have to dust off my old UV tube from the days of erasing / programming EPROM's and give it a go myself :D
