    Infinity screen film coming off? PLEASE HELP

    Hey everyone

    So I've had a tf700 since August. I've been enjoying it so far but shortly after getting it, I began to notice spots on the surface of the screen where the screen is less shiny. Does asus treat the screens by spraying something on them because it almost seems as if a film is coming off. These spots don't have the mirror-like reflection of the rest of the tablet surface and don't fog over when I breathe on the tablet. More of these spots have been showing up and they have been getting more and more annoying. Around Halloween, a stripe roughly 2mm thick with these characteristics has showed up running perfectly horizontal across the screen from edge to edge and looks VERY bad. Other lines are now showing up also but not running edge across the entire tablet like the first one. Strangely, all of these lines are perfectly parallel with one of the edges of the tablet. Does anybody have any idea what could be causing these spots/stripes so I can prevent more from showing up? For some reason, the majority of these marks are on the left side of the screen (I am right-handed, so I use the right-side more). Do you think it could be because a mistake with the processing during the manufacturing? Should I contact asus about it? Thanks in advance.

    I most definitely suspect a manufacturing fault in the screen of your device & given that it is getting worse, not better, I would strongly advise you to contact Asus about it. I expect they will ask you to return your device & they will fit a new screen for you.

    Don't delay - report it today

    If you can take a picture and post it it would be great so others could watch for this. Did you remove the protective film from the screen when you first got the tablet ? I noticed bubbles forming on the front of my microwave key pad over the summer . Guess what it was , the protective film I didn't even know it had on it when I bought it 4 years ago.

    I suspect the two parts of the screen - the LCD & the digitiser are separating & what looks like spots on the surface of the screen are actually faults in the unit where it is separating...

    Could very well be that . But being an engineer I don't like to asume things right off the bat . That was also why I asked if he could post a picture . It's amazing what pictures can tell you some times.

    Since it started happening around Halloween and that was 2 1/2 months ago the OP has a lot more patience than I do!

    And with the perfectly parallel lines that he describes it doesn't sound like it's the film from the factory so plus 1 for Janner.
