    Just got my touch from apple, week 37, just wondering what methods I can use to tell if it has a 'bad screen'.

    Thanks. My iPod Touch is in debt to you. ;)

    If you notice anything bad when you are normally using it, i'd say that's a great test...

    As good as that test should be, I've read far too many things on here that have made me somewhat paranoid about getting a bad screen to see that test fitting this situation. I would just like some links or pics to some good screens of ipod touches so I can compare.

    watch batman begins or some other dark movie on it and if you don't notice a problem then you are fine.

    now I am noticing some dead pixels and want to play a pixel fix video but you have to set them to repeat and I havens found that option on my touch. Anyone know if there is repeat for videos?

    try this test:

    on a faulty screen, the very left square will actually be lighter color than the one next to it, when it should be very black.

    try searching this forum for more tests, i am positive there are more. :cool:
