Re: PS Vita Replacement Vertical Lines

So, I figured I would sign-up and post on this board, since I have read everything I can on the subject, as I just picked up a new Vita on Friday and it had the same issue. I figured it was normal reading what I was reading online and seeing this forum, however, a friend of mine has a Vita, so just out of curiousity, I had to check it out - and sure enough, his Vita is issue (line) free.

 

I returned my Vita as soon as I was able, and got a new one. It also has a _very_ faint set of lines on it, but no where near as bad as it used to be (ie. using the brown background or looking at gray looked ridiculous). So, I can definitely live with it - however, it's obvious to me now that there is meant to be none or very little present. The fact I have seen one with no lines at all proves this to me.

 

If you are on the fence and are not sure if it's normal or not: it isn't normal, and return it. If you get one with very faint lines (like I did), you're all set, or none at all, even better, but it's definitely not normal to be getting those lines (and the mura effect isn't what's at play here - it's either bad assembly or the mechanism that powers the OLED is not correctly aligned/installed).

 

Hope this helps someone.
