Xperia M4 Aqua Screen malfunction

I'm having issues with my M4 with the screen, it began a few hours ago when I noticed the screen behaving weirdly. Lines started appearing and things that were on the screen started making vertical strips of colour. It has since got worse after a few hours, to the point where there are tiny horizontal bars across the screen about 0.5 mm apart which makes it quite hard to read. Dark colours fade to white after a few seconds, only to 'reset' when another colour is present. Everything else is working fine, I am typing this on it now so it is readable, but images are impossible to see. Anyone else having similar issues?

PS, it has been in a case all its life and has only had minor drops. I have had a glass protector on the screen but I took it off to see if it would stop the screen issue, but to no avail. The screen is nearly impossible to read now.

I'm sorry to hear that but it seems to be a hardware issue, contact your Local support to get it inspected.

Re: Xperia M4 Aqua Screen malfunction

Thanks for your reply! I'm heading to the store where I bought it (Spark NZ) to see what they say. I was just wondering if it is a common issue, because I can't understand what happened to it
