can anyone post pics of their ipods with the rainbow effect so i can compare mine to yours? Thanks!
what do you mean 'rainbow effect'?
and which get iPods are you talking about. i think i've got a 3rd Gen iPod, i've never seen any 'rainbow effect'.
The effect when u have the lcd in certain lighting conditions...kinda like when u press a calculator lcd or like a lil mini oil spill
The effect is really evident with the 5GB (1st generation) model iPod displays in high-lighting conditions, especially in outdoor sunlight.
Edit: Do an Altavista image search for the effect (and vary your search terms). There should be a pic there of the effect. http://images.altavista.com
A light source, especially ambient light, infront and behind at the same time tends to cause the optical interference pattern....
Thanks ! Any more?
I have a 20GB 4G iPod, and the rainbow effect really isn't noticeable at all under normal lighting conditions...until you are wearing polarised sunglasses, and then the rainbow ripple through the display plastic is so severe you need to take your sunnies off to read the display! Sorry, don't have any pictures where my camera is wearing my Bolle's to prove it
the wonderful world of Magic!!
One time I was wearing sunglasses and my iPod looked so bad, that I started yelling at people asking which one of my siblings broke it. They all thought I was crazy. Finally I took the glasses off...
Oh God I almost fell out of my chair laughing!
Phew... I thought I was the only one with a slightly fractured screen. I have a 3G 40GB model and I can see the same thing when I look at it at that angle.
ha ha!! he he cool. it's gold i say GOLD!!
and to make it even funnier, just as i'm looking at the picture, my Dad answers the phone and says "oh, hi Dudley". LOL!!
i don't get that at all on my 3G 15GB... then again, i've only had it for about 3 weeks.. (or is it 4 now?)
maybe as more pressure is put on it over time, it becomes more prominent?
i just barely managed to get the display to look a bit purple...
end of post #499,
Any more pics would be appreciated...
Sorry for double post but....
i really need more pics..especially outside and multiple angles
