screen dead
#1
I was really excited to finally see the Pinecil in stock, I had my wife order me one for christmas to replace my XIHAU one. 
I powered it up and it worked for all of 5 minutes before the top half of the screen failed, I only see the lower half of the screen display now.

Is this a common thing?

No, I did not heard about such a problem - maybe the screen has some fault...

However, I suggest you to contact PINE64 about this issue.

Same thing happened to me - worked twice then black screen and dead. This seems like a common issue. Did you hear back from them?
