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..
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.

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.
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:
[QUOTE="Duffman1986, post: 6261595]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![/QUOTE]
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 :lol:
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
