    Hello all,

    I have an early macbook pro and apple replaced the screen of it about maybe 6 months ago. But today I have another problem which is weird. I am not used to dead pixels or stuck pixels, I have never had a screen with any of these problems until now I guess hehe...so let me explain.

    When I have a white background or when I do have a white page, there is a spot at the bottom left of my screen that becomes really bright. When there are daarker colors, it's not visible...is that a stuck pixel or a dead pixel??

    Is this a known problem with macbook pro screen?

    Thank you

    I do not think it's a dead pixel. Dead pixels are supposed to be black right? Plus, when I have a gray background vs white, I still see it but less bright. When I have a darker background (black), I can see it but really really low.

    Anyone experienced this? Will apple fix my screen. I am under Applecare til March 2011.

    Thanks

    This reminds me how when I look at dark images my screen goes dark and when I look at bright images it's like bright and junk! And then there's that pesky gloved finger that just can't make up its mind.

    I ave the exact same issue on mine and I've tried doing the massage and running the stuck pixel program and its still there... apple care says they wont change until you have 5 or more so let me know if there is anyway to go abut it!
