ive just watched Blade II on my new powerbook and realised a small bright red pixel in the middle to the right, is it a dead pixel or something like that, and do i need to get it replaced? it seems to be there all the time, but you can only really see it when it is really dark.

I believe Apples policy on flat screens is that you have to have like 7 dead pixels in order to qualify for an exchange. I would still call and ask.

BTW, this isn't the right place for this topic.

Moving to the PowerBook forum....

I have read that, if you gently rub the area (red pixel). it may resolve the problem.

yeah, clock wise, light masage of the area, can sometimes revive the dead pixel.

I got that as well, no big deal though. But I just noticed that I actually have a dead pixel now, massaging it didn't help this time though Oh well, at least it is only one.

hmm, counter-clock wise massaging should 'revive' single pixels.. you must have a rare problem..
