    Arrow Dead Pixel On My 8700g!

    Advertisement



    I had my 8700g for little more than a month.. and yea I fell in love with it. But today when I was looking at my wallpapers, I noticed a dead pixel. It's not really bothering me or anything, but I called tmobile about this issue hoping that they can replace it. But they told me that it's normal for an LCD screen to have at least one dead pixel (which I don't agree), and they said that if the pixel gets bigger or something, then I can call them so I can get it replace. Do you guys agree with this guy? or should I call them again and ask for a replacement? What do you guys think? Thanks!

    I agree with 17oobie. It's defective, it should be replaces. Claim that it is distacting and interferes with you use of the device

    My 7130g has a dead pixel. Came dead out of the box.

    But hey, it's only one.

    If I get two....

    Although, it is common to have a pixel or two on any LCD display to go dead. Just not usually when it's new.

    I bought a computer and out of the box the screen had a few pixels out. I was told the warranty will only cover 7 or more pixels. It is not normal for a screen to have dead pixels, but it is possible. I say its covered by the manufacturers warranty.
