View Full Version : new ipod nano dead pixel?

Sep 11, 2009, 04:07 PM
when my nano is plugged in to the mac and is on the charging screen there's a little red dot that appears near the top, and it also appears in other applications as well over a black border.

worth exchanging?

Weird. I got the new nano two days ago and there's a red pixel at the top as well.
I may call apple and see if I can get a gift card or something.

Try playing a pixel-fixing video on the iPod. They're meant for LCDs, so I don't know if it will work (but it certainly wouldn't hurt to try ;)).
I used to go to this one website with an actual downloadable file (which you could then place in iTunes and convert it, or however you would want to put it on your iPod), but I don't know where it went.
This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GwrHzjgFtw) is more or less the same concept though; you could download the video from Youtube via deturl.com (http://www.deturl.com/).
