A batch of Vectors have LCD screens that form lines on them. The lines often start at the bottom, both marring the eyes and making the Bluetooth LE pairing pin codes illegible.
The community initially thought that the LCD connections to the head-board became delaminate with falls, lots of head motion, shaking and bad luck. This was wrong.
It was a bad batch of LCDs with a fauly gasket on the glass/plastic pieces that let humidity in and corrodes the electrical bits.
