    Hey all you Apple gurus, just wanted to call upon your experience to help out a lesser being like me.

    My backlight's been bleeding. Judging by the pictures, is my bleediness "oh, that's normal" or "TAKE TO :apple: STORE NAO." I took a bunch of pics, but these are the ones that are at eye level. All the others I took at the wrong angle and misrepresent the problem.

    Still though, is this backlight bleeding normal? Not to say that it bothers me, but it'd be nice if I could waltz out of the Apple Store with some new, non-degraded CCFLs.

    Is that a picture or something? Do you have a link to the original picture to see what it looks like?

    Or is that a completely black screen?

    Nope, it's a black screen.

    I went into PowerPoint, made a blank black slide, and went fullscreen to do it. I'm sure there are easier ways, but it was the first thing that came to mind when I noticed something wasn't right.

    Ouch. I've gotten three of these, so either it's a common problem or I'm just very unlucky. After the third one was sent back to Apple I gave up - too much time and effort wasted on sending stuff back and forth. :(

    My advice: take it back and complain!
