      I had a similar problem with mine originally. I received it at the end of December, and after approx. 1 month it would flicker and become dimmer, going brighter as I moved the screen. At the beginning of March I had to have the screen replaced (my fault--I dropped it. They were great about the repair). Since then I have had no problems whatsoever.

      Sounds like an LCD problem to me.
