    hi all

    this is my first post, been reading the forums here for a while and its been a great resource. I finally got my week 43 ipod touch today. Its fantastic and im really happy with it...but it does have a few stuck pixels i think. When the brightness is up half way there are a few visable green shiny pixels that show up only against a black background. However when i turn the brightness down to near off they vanish??

    is this a faulty unit? im thinking of taking it back to the store to hopefully get a replacement.

    one further question it came qith 1.1.1 firmware will an upgrade to 1.1.2 possibly fix this issue?

    any advice?

    thanks

    Sorry buddy, nothing you can do except return it and hope for a good one. But so far, on my 7th iPod touch, I haven't had any luck...they have ALL had stuck pixels. And the search begins...

    I Don't believe in luck...plain and simple, they have poor QC on the iPod touch screens.

    Or you look too far into it. My LCD monitor on my computer has one dead red pixel, but I didn't return it. :p

    Yep, back you go. I'm telling you...you might be in for a long journey. I am going for number 8) tomorrow. I have been to 3 stores, and all 3 of them had iPod touches on display, and all the demos had stuck pixels too. So far I have never seen an iPod touch with a perfect screen.

    well i got my 3rd replacement today...and its actually perfect, cant believe it! Thought i was gonna be returning ipods for the rest of my existence...
    Its actually a week 40 model, the others were all week 43...anyway i dont really care its all good, video and audio all sweet and internet is working fine also. The best thing is no dead pixels...finally

    Glad i kept going back and im really happy with my ipod touch now, dont stand for dead pixels people!!

    off to jailbreak the little bitch now!
