    I have searched and not seen this problem in other threads. My wife's phone recently updated (a couple days ago). Today it started a new problem that seems more software than hardware related. When it starts the screen is perfect, then after android starts, within a few minutes the screen will either fade, or create horizontal or vertical lines. Often if you change screens (chrome to background, etc) the pattern of the lines will change. Reboot and it's perfect again for a minute or two.

    From my experience with other types of screens lines could be a cable issue or physical problem with the screen, but in those cases the lines are consistent (same color, direction, placement, etc). This seems more software/driver related, but I may be wrong.

    Any idea what might have caused this? Any idea what might fix it?

    TIA

    Welcome to Android Central! Try booting into Safe Mode, which temporarily disables all 3rd party apps. https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/prod_answer_detail/a_id/105543/p/30,6720,9541/kw/safe If the problem disappears in Safe Mode, then something you installed is causing the problem. You may have to uninstall apps one by one until the problem disappears. If the problem persists in Safe Mode, then it's more likely to be a hardware or firmware problem.

    I've had my MXPE for a month and this happened twice and went away by simply shutting it down and turning it back on. Also had some light bleeding once (I was on a black webpage and there was white light bleeding from the sides as if coming from behind). No idea what caused it but it seems that both (all 3 I suppose) happened while outdoors in extreme humidity. Probably shouldn't have happened but hasn't occurred again so I'll just be on the lookout for now...
