Re: [NTLK] Interesting Screen Anomaly on 2100, Anyone...

These seem to be classic Newton's rings.

"Some adhesives can lift the top layer of the screen
        and leave an air pocket, resulting in permanent Newton's Rings within
        the display's layers. Others can leave behind a residue on the screen."

So I think that one of the layers in the 2100's screen is loose, and there are now air pockets in there.  Any advice?

Has anyone taken apart a Newton LCD?  Can I separate the layers?

Another interesting link on ring patterns that form and how a film is interposed
between the outer screen and inner screen:
