"Oh Noooo!," I thought. "It must be a broken screen substrate."

However, I tried a long mains recharge (overnight) and the pattern vanished. The device is now working as well as ever it did.

My DR1000 displayed strange lines after a long period of disuse, but after recharging and quite a few refreshes (!), they finally disappeared. I'm afraid though that Grimulkan's screenshot indicates something more serious...
allovertheglobe is probably right, unfortunately Although I didn't expect it to work, I did try charging the device completely and had it boot up/shut down several times, all to no avail. I think this has effectively ended my DR adventure, it was great while it lasted.
