Default wireless interference

Does anyone notice interference on the screen when the wireless in on? I have a 16gb zune hd, and when the wireless is on and I'm connected to a network, there is definitely a"banding" going up and down the screen. I hope it's not normal.

Screen flickering? If your talking about that... Yes, especially when charging.

no, not flickering. it's more like bands of faded colors moving up and down...you can still see everything on the screen, but it looks bad

You can see this electrical interference "banding" on the display when the unit is being pushed, especially when it's showing white or lighter colors. If you increase the device's brightness to the maximum, it'll be less noticeable.

Yeah... I'm pretty sure that is the flickering that is spooking common. At least that's what has been happening to me for a while.... The random lines

It's not the wireless it is more of a screen fresh problem. The reason it does it on the lighter backgrounds is because the color white uses more power to display than a black background.

Mine is definetely from the wireless. When it's on and loading something I can see it, when it's off there is no interference.

On a side note, how do I get the facebook app to show my wall and stuff. I saw the thread on it, but there is no real solution. I tried uninstalling the app in fb, restarting my zune, etc but no luck. I still only have two permissions in fb for the app.
