Similar situation . . .
I'm having almost the same situation. I've had problems with my Platinum for about a month now (first with the screen - it wasn't responding to taps - but I fixed that by taking it apart and securing the white ribbon), and my most recent problem is again with the screen, but now the Visor ceases to function or respond to taps (although it's still on, it just doesn't show anything on the screen) unless I squeeze the sides. In other words, I can still use it, I just have to squeeze it - but it gets annoying, anyway. It's really quite strange, and I've never had this problem myself before although I've heard tell of it. (OK, so it might be caused by the fact I took it apart and messed with it . . .)
I've been thinking about ditching this and buying a Prism (color screen, rechargeable battery, more memory, etc.), but I want to see how long my Plat can last before I do it. Has anyone found a remedy for this problem, or do I just need to get a new one and forget about it?
