    I'm using it normally but I'm sure it's there. How can I be sure?

    If you're not sure just by using it then don't worry about it.

    I usually play a video that has an initial blank black screen and pause it there, but there might be an easier way.

    Why not just look at a black image in the photos app?

    so let me get this straight...in your normal use you don't see any problem. yet, you are actively trying to find it? that makes sense...

    the OCD on this forum continues to astound.

    I want to know as well, but I refuse to look for it. Simply cause if I have the issue, that's all i'll see and it'll erk the shiz outta me.

    If you dont see it under normal use dont bother looking for it. if you do find it it will only cause you stress trying to find the perfect unit when yours is perfectly fine and all units may have some light bleed.

    You can go to www.blackle.com and then turn the brightness all the way up. I'd get in a room that's dark as well or do it in the evening or at night. Mine has some backlight bleed, but very very minimal.

    That'd be better if I had a pure black image, which I don't. I guess I could find one pretty easy though, so you're right.

    Hard to get a picture without ANY ambient light though. The iPhone itself projects some light while TAKING the picture. Easier just to find - which I already did. :)

    right out of the box when it told me to sync, it was horrible and i could see it.

    it was actually all around the iPad.

    if at that point you didn't see it, I wouldn't worry too much.

    but take a black image, just cover the camera and turn on full brightness in a dark room.
