    I have a 6800 that is now showing a single row of dead LCD's. It's about the
    15th row down from the top. It stays as that row even when opened and the
    rest of the screen rotates. Powering off, removing the battery or anything
    else does not do anything.

    Is this phone done or even worth getting repaired.

    I'm not sure what did it, of course I have droped it a couple of times, but
    it started this without a drop or anything.

    Thanks,
    Devin

    This is a common problem with dot matrix LCD displays. It is almost
    certainly caused by a dodgy connection for that line of pixels. To fix the
    problem, depending how the LCD display is connected, it may just mean
    applying some solder to the dodgy connection, of cleaning the compression
    connection.

    A Nokia Service Centre will be able to fix this problem in 20 minutes if it
    is this particular problem.

    It could also be caused by a broken pathway on the PCB to that line of
    pixels. The phone would have to be replaced in this case.
