    Ok not sure if this is something to be concerned with. I noticed a tiny lil blue dot on the LCD screen. It's on the lowere right corner. I'm not sure if this is something I need ot be concerned with. I don't see it on any printed pictures, or on the images when I download to the computer. IT's only there when i activate the LCD. I am afraid that this can possibly spread. Am I just being paranoid? It's about the size of a pin head. The camera is only a week old, should I return it? This on a brand new D200. And I don't have another camera that I could take a shot of it and post it here. What do you think I should do?
     
  2. It sounds like a dead/hot pixel on the LCD, it's not uncommon for LCD's to have dead pixels even brand new. For it to be declared "faulty" there will need to be a percentage of them. If it's on the LCD and not the sensor I wouldn't worry.

    I had and still have one on the LCD of my D300

    So does that mean a store won't exchange it?
     
  4. It's worth trying, but they may refuse unless it's a certain percentage of the pixels. It's the same deal with LCD monitors. Mine is green, and is just below where the image displays (where the black info bar is on playback) and it really doesn't bother me. A little annoying at first that I spend £900 and have it, but it doesn't affect the camera performance at all, and not enough to cause me the hassle of repair/exchange.

    I guess I'm just being anal. It's riducles you spend all that money and STILL get imperfection!!!
     
  6. unfortunately, the manufacturers aren't to blame. It's merely a negative point to the technology they use.

  9. Nikon can map them out so it doesn't show if it really bothers you Joe.

    I am SOOOOOOO ANAL!!!!!!!! I tried talking myself into beleiving I could live with it. I CAN'T!!! I just got back from the store my wife bought it in. I made them exchange it....
     
  11. well at least your persistent. lol. i would have gotten upset to if i had just bought the camera. i don't think i could live with it on my camera LCD. i have a green one in my macbook screen. but its not as easy to see as i am sure your camera one is... lol. but i would have done the same thing taat. so don't worry. lol :)

    I've got a hot pixel on the D80 I just bought from the For Sale forum. It came with the extended warranty from Best Buy.. do you think they'll exchange it for me?

    Edit: It's on the sensor... the hot pixel persists into the image on the PC
