Unhappy LCD problems

Hi there. New to this forum and hoping someone can help.

I have a Samsung Fascinate that I LOVED, until today. Today, my LCD is all wacky. It's discolored (mostly in blue shades) and simply looks terrible. I have done the following, to no avail:
  • Pulled the SD card
  • Pulled the battery
  • Uninstalled WordsFree (Words with Friends), since I installed that app recently
  • Adjusted the screen's brightness settings and selected a manual setting

I'm noticing that the screen is kind of wiggling, too, if you will. My phone is only 3 months old. Do you think my screen is shot? If not, can someone recommend a fix?

Thanks!

If it's only 3 months old, you should be able to go to a VZW store and get a warranty replacement. Sounds like the screen is in fact, going bad.

Just an FYI. You have a Super AMOLED screen, not LCD.

Default thanks!

Thanks for the replies. I took my phone into a Verizon store today and they confirmed the LED is "bleeding. They ordered me a new one.
