    yeah it was completely fine until a few days ago. idk if its te backlight or the actual display but the whole thing is flickering in "spasms" every few seconds. changing the brightness doesnt help and its getting really annoying. is the backlight dying? do backlights even die? and my warranty expired long ago. i dont want to restore since i dont think its software: even the boot screen flickers and recovery mode flickers. can i fix this?

    It takes a bit of work but you could replace the LCD; that is my assumption on what is going wrong with it.
