I have noticed that the monochrome oled screen is prone to burn in.

I've had this problem before. Call Preston they can talk you through the fix in 5min. It's a loose connection that is easy to fix. If it's the same thing that happened to me once.

There's a ribbon cable that loosens up inside. Open it up push the ribbon into the plastic connector. And check the seating of any other connectors while you are at it. Simple.

Thanks Lawrence and Philip I got it back to work just pushed all connectors firmly (but carefully ) down , I was a bit wary because I damaged the ribbon before which was a whole epic disaster but this was as mentioned easy! Thanks for feedback I did not even speak to Preston
