    Maybe I"m just imagining things but today as I was driving home from a late night stroll I noticed that while my screen is set to the main control screen there was a little white bar about an 1/8 of an inch thick at the very bottom of the status bar where it displays the orange or white "TEL" for bluetooth and "IN" (if you have a CD/DVD in) and "AUTO1", "AUTO2" or "MANU" for tuning. This is normally hidden if you press and hold down the TEL button on the head unit itself to bring up your green navigation bar. My background is all black with a Toyota emblem and I know I've never seen this little line there before. It only does it while on the source control screen. The screen is fine while in DVD playback mode and at the system startup screen. Does anyone else have this issue or could my screen be defective already? I've only had the damn thing installed for 3 months and wouldn't think it would be a cause for the screen to be damaged already. All thoughts are appreciated and thanks in advance. I will try to post a better picture tomorrow.

    Here is a better pic during the day. Sorry my phone's cam is pretty worthless.

    Here are some better pics from my digital camera. This is strange because I'm almost positive that the status bar should be all black.

    No love on this? I know there are a lot of 9140 owners out there. Surely someone could let me know that I'm either crazy for just now noticing that white fade or at least tell me that their status/function bar is all black. Please let me know, this little issue is kind of driving me crazy.
