Default Desire HD strange screen problem - works in the dark, not in daylight!

Hello all, first time poster so please be gentle!

I have a strange problem and have tried the usual factory reset etc.

In sunlight or natural light my 18 month old DHD screen becomes very sluggish. Typing is a real pain, sometimes the screen doesn't recognise keyboard taps and other times it makes them up randomly. It's like the screen is coated in a layer of goo!

But in low light, indoors or at night, the four menu buttons light up (well, actually, the Back arrow doesn't light up for some reason), and the screen functions PERFECTLY.

Turning Automatic brightness on or off doesn't seem to make a difference.

At first I thought I was going mad - a phone that only works properly in the dark is somewhat ridiculous!

Does anyone have any idea of a solution, or even a work around for this? I'm not mad keen on rooting my phone but would do if it was the only way to solve the problem.
