    I have has my 23" (new style) ACD for just over 2 years now bought new with a Powermac G5.

    I have always had 3 dead pixels since buying it but didn't ever suffer from the pink hue effect that tainted an otherwise great display...

    So I go away for 6 weeks and return. I have a distinctive pink outline around all sides. The whites are now a very off pink color too!

    I also notice groups of dead pixels now that I swear were never there until now. Here are pics:

    Any ideas why and how these events would have happened? Would apple do anything about this wihtout apple care?

    Thanks for any input

    If it isn't covered by AppleCare, then most likely no.

    Sorry to hear about it though :(

    There's no need to quote the pics.

    My MacBook Pro has a spot like that. It's almost as if there is a spec of dust or something between the LCD panel and the backlight. The pixels still work normally, displaying the correct color, it's just a bit darker.:(

    ohh opps i didn't realize the pics were quoted too. I guess you could replace the lcd pannel for about 200-300 but that might not fix it. You might be able to buy an old one off ebay. Mine was a year or two old when i bought it for 200$ 2years ago.

    I have a spot just like that on mine. Looks like dust in between the panel and the backlight.

    Edit: because everyone else included a pic... it's not a great representation of the spot, it's a little darker IRL.
