    Don't take anything apart, you could easily void the warranty. I suggest putting the device into DFU Mode and do a restore in iTunes.

    Did this work for you? I'm having the same problem?!n

    Mine sometimes corrects itself after numerous restarts. It really looks like some form of screen fault. Sometimes the apple logo will have a green tinge to it and 2 logos will appear on eachother and restart again. It looks really bad but phone is out of warranty as bought online so not sure what to do? It is a fairly new 3gs in good nip running ios 4.0.2

    When it works it may work for a while and then flash off again. It was working perfectly for the last month since I bought it and I didnt drop it or anything.....Help would greatly be appreciated!
