Good Afternoon bmcintyre51,
I can understand how inconvenient it would be to have a screen that is not behaving consistently. I recommend verifying you have the most current software first. Additionally, you can try running the device in safe mode to determine if any third party apps may be causing the issue. As a final option, a hard reset may also resolve the problem. I have included links below to assist you.
- View Software version: Latest version is: 1.3.418.MB870.Verizon.en.US. http://bit.ly/rYCZaD
- Safe Mode: http://bit.ly/nXvveN
- Hard Reset: http://bit.ly/sH3ays
If the problem persists, your handset includes a one-year manufacture warranty.
I hope this information is helpful in resolving your concerns.

The same thibng is happening to my phone .. this is must be a software issue from the verizon side it started about 8 days ago.. the screen works fine for a few hours then it goes blank the battery is fine and fully charged. Took out the battery tried hard reboot .. doesnt come up the nav lights light up and screen is flashing .. Also saw the pixelated screen once or twice. This phone has worked perfectly until recently. This is not a reset issue.. something on the verizon side has changed.
