    Just got home from a store...

    ... and my new tv already has a dead pixel.
    What should I do? Go back? I heard a repair would take 4 to 6 weeks but I don't feel like waiting so long :/

    Can't you get a new one right of the bat? Sure it's completely dead?

    Sucks when stuff like that happens.. When I returned a flat-screen for a whole line of dead pixels, the web-store replied that the returned package had been badly damaged before arrival and tried to pin it on me. The nerve. Naturally I told them I had photographic evidence and 'tore them a new one' over the telephone..

    $#@! happens - my new Notebook had 3 "stuck" pixels when it arrived.
    I sent it back and got a new one.

    It was a hassle but worth it - can't stand that, i'd look at them aaaall the time

    I'd take it back too. Dead pixels are not ok!

    Absolutely take it back. The problem usually gets worse with time. I had a Samsung dlp and it took about seven years to start getting them. It started with 4, then in a month it had about 30, that's when I got a new tv.

    The last time I had the problem.. it was an Acer monitor I bought from Amazon. It had a single dead pixel, bottom left... not really noticeable, but again, I'm OCD about it lol. They sent me a replacement and I got it next day. I then sent them the bad one back.

    Take it back. No sense in hanging on to it and waiting for repair. Make the store send it back.

    What did you buy?
    Also, yes, return for immediate refund/not satisfied with purchase, etc.

    Correct, they say it's due to the natural state of the tv (Toshiba's bs out clause).
    No, it's a manufacturing defect, plain and simple. I pay for X million working color dots and features to manipulate them, not a non standard non fully articulated picture plane,
    NO. do not accept that BS.

    Thanks guys
    Took it back to the store, got a different tv without a hassle!
    Paid €20 extra, but I went from a 39" "Ok." to a 42" LG, so I'm happy
    Skyrim and Rayman: Origins look so amazing, especially since I went from a like 20" CRT TV to this c:

    Sounds like you got a good deal there if they only wanted €20 for a better trade up, made taking back the faulty unit even more worth it!

    probably a bit late, take it back and get a refund or an exchange, you should have a 12 month warranty if your bought it from a legitimate shop

    Well the more expensive option actually only was 20 more, so it's kind of stupid I didn't get this one to start with
    Well I'm really happy with it! I used to be unable to read the text from skyrim, now I can read it just celebrated my birthday with some friends and we played Street Fighter IV a lot, just feels so much better on a big tv
