Motorola and Verizon have confirmed that a small percentage of Droid X handsets suffer from screen problems.
Shortly after launch a small but significant number of users turned to online forums to complain that the 4.3in LCD screen was segmenting into bars or dying completely.
Technology blog Engadget contacted Verizon and received official confirmation that the problem affects around one per cent of handsets.
"Verizon Wireless and Motorola are aware of a very small number of Droid X units that have experienced a flickering or banding display," said Verizon in a statement.
"Motorola has resolved the issue and is continuing to ship the phones. Any consumer who experiences a flickering or banding display should contact a Motorola customer support centre or Verizon Wireless."
A software patch has already been pushed out that should fix some of the problems, and Motorola has reportedly said that any affected phones will be replaced free of charge.
The speed of response contrasts sharply with Apple's attitude to the antenna glitch with the iPhone 4, and shows that manufacturers are more nervous about product faults.
