    ya know, you might be onto something. I have a couple spots on my screen that if you look at it just right almost like like dead/stuck pixels but they go away when at a normal angle.

    thank you Dieter. My apologies for creating a new thread folks. I did not, repeat, did not refresh the main forums, and was running from a minimized window I had opened , oh say somewhere between 5-7 this morning So I haven't seen the new threads.

    Keep in mind there's a difference between "dead" (always black) and "stuck" (always on) pixels. I've got two stuck red pixels. I don't think they were there the first time I started it up...but maybe I was just too excited.

    I've got one stuck red pixel as well... I'm just gonna swap it out on Monday. I doubt my store has any left in stock and I don't care THAT much. And also I wanna play with it!

    Mine has two dead pixels. Doesn't bother me much, but it's really a matter that is bothering me...

    I got lucky with mine, no backlight bleed or dead pixels. I did get a dead pixel on my Garmin GPS unit though.

    Stupid poll, sorry, but no option for no dead pixel? How can you get an accurate count?

    No light bleed through or dead pixels. No bubbles that I can see. I do notice a clicking noise when squeezing the the top left corner together with my thumb and fore finger. Looks a small space between the two halves at the top left corner.

    Not happy about that......

    So are we allowed to exchange for a new pre without paying any fees? I have a red pixel too

    Yes, I've got two dead spots on my screen. One looks like a single dead pixel, another looks like a circular area of squashed LCD. No worries, will just exchange it once supply evens out, but that means at least a months wait.

    Damn post count limitation. I'd post pictures but NOOOO I need 10 posts first. . . *(#&%$#(*

    I have some too. Its not a deal breaker but it does need to be addressed.

    My first one was bad, it had all the problems people are talking about. I exchanged it and this one has been great.
  18. #58  
    no problems with mine, whatsoever. quite happy.

    What happens when you take back your pre to exchange for a new one and the second one is probably worse than the first? are they going to keep opening new pres until your satisfied?

    I remember back when the Treo 700p was having a lot of problems that someone on this forum said he had 9 bad replacement 700p units, I think they actually would keep exchanging phones till you got a good one.
