Topic: it6251 does not stabilize

The LCD on my Novena does not show anything. The backlight is on, and I'm able to see the UI on an external monitor connected over HDMI. Diggiging around in dmesg shows it6251 does not stabilize. Here's the output of "dmesg | grep it6251"

Re: it6251 does not stabilize

Reverted to original factory sdcard image -- display briefly showed some text, and then stopped displaying.. HDMI still works
