    Sorry to hear the bad news, it sounds like one dead pixel and 2 stuck pixels.. hence the 2 green ones, they can stick on any colour, I had one on my last DSLR camera which was a very bright pink.. it looked like someone was shining a tiny torch at me.. Dead pixels are always black,, and probably preferable than a stuck pixel especially if they are bright as they can really stand out... Take it back and get it replaced if you haven't already done so.

    AAMOI... were these faulty pixels on new when you first got the iPad ? or did they appear a few days later ? IME most bad pixels are present when new, and generally if you can get through the 1st week without any showing up.. the chances of getting one or more later is greatly reduced, though they can fail at any time of course, it just rarely happens later, and if it does then obviously we have to live with them, but it certainly would not be acceptable when new... not for me anyway.

    Let us know how you get on.. they should change it without any question.

    I don't. That's why I requested a picture. How do you know if you have them?

    It's pretty much a little tiny dot on the screen that does my go away.... You can either them them with an all black screen or all white.
