    .. I have the screen bleed :mad:

    I went into the under stairs cupboard, pressed the home button to get the tethering logo up and all up the left hand side, there are light patches. Top, right hand side and bottom are perfect.

    Whether its my eyes or not I don't know, but the longer it was on, the less obvious it was. Almost like it was "healing" itself? I haven't plugged it into iTunes yet- Im contemplating taking it back tomorrow.

    Unhappy at the moment.

    If you plan on spending a lot of time in dark rooms and it bothers you ~ Take it back.

    Very simple.:)

    Agree, if you don't see it during normal use then what does it matter? Only time I can see it on mine is if my screen is pure black and I'm in a pitch dark room and I can't imagine that scenerio happening.

    True
    I think if I hadn't read posts about it on this forum, I'd be none the wiser. I'll load it up with the OS and see how it looks

    Or if you are Harry Potter (who actually lives in the under stairs cupboard) have your owl take it back for you. :)

    I don't think it will work. They said it's because of the glue inside or something.

    Oh. I meant for the screen bleeding to go away. Usually folks have it a lot longer than 5 hours.;)
