    Hi guys,
    Just got my new iPad 32/3G but I think there is a problem. Indeed i saw a mark on the black frame (right in the middle/ under the glass) I saw any of these "marks" on the models in store (but there was only wifi ones)
    Any advice welcome
    The store is closed now... I ll go tomorrow morning.

    ps : sorry about the picture (3g rules :)) the mark is right next to the light bulb ("in the lamp")

    Thanks

    That would be the ambient light sensor. A simple Google search or looking over the Apple Spec Page could have told you that.

    Yes, it's the ambient light sensor.

    How can you have a dead pixel on the black frame? That's not screen.

    Thanks to all.
    For sure i feel dumb now... But i m the kind of guy who got the XX percent of break items.
    I made a rapid search online...but knew i would got fast answers here.

    @ Surely: I know i couldn't have a dead pixel on frame but English isn't my native langage so ...that was the easiest way for me to explain.

    I didn't plug in yet hope the real dead pixel don't show up /gasp :)

    Funniest thread I've ever seen. FYI, to see a dead or stuck pixel the screen has to be on. :D

    Hey...cut him a break...:)

    I, personally, would much rather see a thread like this with an innocent question from somebody not as well-versed in the "jargon," than the typical, "The iPad is too heavy for me...Waaa...Waaa...Waaa..." whining threads...

    Just sayin'...

    I agree, I'd much rather see a thread like this than some of the other. I did smile! :D

    Sorry OP but my co worker think i'm crazy for laughing out loud. :D but in serious note, that is in fact the ambient sensor light like everyone said. Anyways, welcome to iPad community ;)

    Before you freak out, that little hole on top next to the headphone jack is just the built-in microphone. It's nothing to be concerned with, we all have it on ours, too. :)

    Congrats on the new iPad by the way!

    hey,
    I've also just recently got my new iPad :) it's a 32GB WiFi one. I found a dead pixel 2 days after I got it. I ran the RGB test to see if it was actually dead and the pixel just didn't change. I was wondering whether I could get a replacement for my iPad when I go back home to London. I'm in HK at the moment and just got it here.
