    Got my ZAGGkeys MINI 7 this weekend. I got around to installing it yesterday and seemed like it was working fine. However today I opened it up and noticed new rainbowized lines across the screen. I figured it was just crap on the screen and tried to wipe it off, but it seems to be permanently there. I have a screen protector but that shouldn't make a difference. It appears to have damaged right where the screen lays up against the upper part of the keyboard that contains the battery.

    I am attaching a pic. If you zoom into the bottom 1/3rd you may be able to see. Has anyone else experienced this?

    EDIT: Okay after waiting a day most of the "damage" has seemed to have gone away. It does indeed appear that the issue was with the invisibleSHIELD HD and not the screen itself. I left the shield on to see if the lines would work themselves out and it looks like they may over time. I did contact ZAGG and they are sending me a replacement for the shield. In the end I am also returning the keyboard/case. If it comes that close to the screen it is not worth the potential damage to the device itself for me.

    The glass on the mini is a lot thinner than that of the full size iPad.
    To me it looks like the keys pressed into the glass and into the LCD

    There's a good chance it's just damage to the screen protector. If you wanted to check, you could carefully peel it back.
