dead pixel on gamepad

#1tranceFusion9Posted 11/27/2012 7:43:48 AM
Is this common?

I have a single dead pixel. I can't differentiate it from a piece of dust without tilting the system to the side. I can't notice it while playing games. Plenty of people may have enjoyed this gamepad for years without ever noticing it. Yet, now that I know it's there, I can't stop thinking about it.

Trying to figure out whether to return the whole system or just live with it.

I would return it but that's because it would drive of insane.

Depends where it is, and also if its completely dead (always black) or stuck (will show one of the primary rgb colours all the time)

Center of the screen might annoy. But just one? You might end up with worse tbh

I've seen a total of four complaints about this. So it's not common. You should be able to get an exchange.

If its dead, take the console back.

If its stuck, use the 'tap' method to fix it.

Hey remember the PSP? lolololol 12 dead pixels on average out of the box = win.

And I doubt its common just look return it for a new one. Unless its not a big deal like my PC monitor, its got quite a few but luckily they arent near the centre of the screen so I tend not to notice them.
