    Yes. Mine did this also when it was cold. I freaked out first time.
    Anyways, upgrade your firmware to v51 and it should be solved.

    Default Re: 5800 screen problem - distorted horizontal lines

    I had the same problem about a month ago. I don't know why there are so much people saying it's a firmware issue. In fact, when this started to happen to my phone, I already had v51. I tried formatting, reflashing, Nokia original firmware; I even tried the magnet trick, but it didn't work either. I finally took it to the repair service. They changed the LCD, but after a couple of hours, it started to happen again, so I took it back. When I went to pick it up, they said that they changed the LCD again, that the previous one could also be damaged. I didn't keep my hopes up, but to my surprise, my phone is working great again, and I never ran into this problem again since then (before the second LCD r eplacement, I couldnt go a day without facing this problem).

    My Nokia 5800 has recently started giving this distorted lines issue. As it was under warranty Nokia Care said they will replace the LCD and give my cell back in 15 days.

    I'm not saying it's a FW issue.
    It is a hardware issue.
    But Nokia made a workaround in v51 for this.
    This all does not mean that maybe your LCD was broken but with same visible symptoms.
    And by the way, this isn't a faulty LCD issue but a weak BG filter next to it.

    I honestly doubt its a software issue. It maybe that some software can prevent this from happening, but in my view this is definately a hardware issue. Why?!

    Because it happens only when the temperature drops below around 22C. I am in Beijing and whilst the phone was working fine during the whole summer, it started to do this again - like last winter! If its not too cold (15-20C) repeating locking with the side lock sometimes brings back the screen normally. however if its below 10C I am out of luck.

    You can test it, by warming the screen (hold it close to a light bulb or put it in your trouser pockets for 5 min). Voila, its working argain.

    However - its is really annoying of course, and in my case renders the bloody thing a very costly paper weight.

    Nokia refuses to accept liability, as the phone seems to be a grey import (not easy to tell at the best of times here), and wants to charge me another 50 Euro's to have the screen replaced - jokers!!!

    Time to sell this Nokia junk and move onto Android!

    Nokia 5800 screen issue is actually a hardware issue. I had took my cell to Nokia care, first they re-installed v.51.0.006 firmware to check if it was a software issue, and later when they found that the issue still persist, then they changed the LCD screen.
    I got it done for free since my cell was under warranty. But if its out of warranty then you need to pay Rs. 2024 for lcd change.

    Default Re: 5800 screen problem - distorted horizontal lines

    I just started getting this issue on my 5800 .
    At first tried to revert to stock firmware but no luck.
    Some times it would go away after couple of lock unlocks but now when it happens even shutdown does not fix it. HAve to get the battery out few times to get it working.
    What is the magnet trick by the way ?

    The magnet trick did not worked for me.
    As my cell was under warranty i got my cell's LCD screen replaced from Nokia care for free.
