Are Apple Stores exchanging iPad 2's with light leak issues no problem?

    Mine is pretty bad, and I also have a dead pixel. I shouldn't have any problems exchanging it right?

    Call AppleCare, report your issues, and they'll document your serial # to get a replacement from the store.

    From what I have read here they are exchanging them. The problem is I have yet to see one that's "perfect". Mine has it but I'm gonna wait a month or two before I try to get it replaced. Hopefully by then it will be fixed, if not I can just return it all together to target for a refund.

    Same here... if i sit in the dark and black out the screen, i can see it, but under normal use, I don't notice it at all... Figure I'll do the same.. give it a month or two when supplies are replenished and take it in. For now, I just don't notice it under normal use.

    Yep I am going to do the same. I just hope they won't refuse. I already tried once and he offered to replace it but at that moment I changed my mind and decided to just keep it as from what I've seen the replacement would be very likely to suffer the same issue.

    There is some which are near enough "perfect" in the backlight bleeding thread. Good enough so you can't see the backlight bleeding at low brightness and maybe see a little bit if it's at full brightness and you look hard but your never going to get a "perfect" screen anyway.

    This one for example.

    If you call in for a case # you should be fine.. But they will exchange it just for the dead pixel.
