I have a blue band across the middle of my Galaxy Ace 55830i Gingerbread.XXLD3 phone and cannot find out why.

I have tried to check if it is a video still playing or something streaming but I have been unsuccessful in sorting out what the problem is.

Does the blue band show up when you are booting the phone (on the initial logo and startup animation)? Or only after you have started the phone completely up? – Stephen Schrauger Jan 27 '13 at 23:48
Blue band - are you referring to when playing a video? – t0mm13b Jan 28 '13 at 0:19
Try taking a screenshot with the Android SDK tools. If it doesn't show up in the screenshot, it is an issue with the screen. Or as @dymutaos said, if you seen the blue band as soon as the screen comes on, even when booting the phone, it is an issue with the screen. – Ryan Conrad Jan 28 '13 at 0:51
If its on video playback, chances are quite high its related to video codec... possibly DRM :) – t0mm13b Jan 28 '13 at 1:58
