I just bought a nintendo ds and noticed 2 dead pixels on the touch screen.  Its driving me crazy because I know they are there.  Can I return the nintendo ds to circuit city or am I stuck with my ds?

How many dead pixels is too much for you to bear?

When I owned a PSP, I had one, and I could deal with it.  Two may be pushing it.

I`d return it IF it bugs you. But I`m picky, and you paid just as much as the guy with none...

If CC won't take it back, contact Nintendo. I thought I remember reading other posts here that Nintendo will allow you to ship it to them (on their expense, too) and they'll send a perfect one back.

My PSP has 1 dead pixel. It's pretty annoying now and I should have taken it back when I had the chance.

My DS doesn't have any so far.

That is classy. I wish the stupid things had games I really wanted to play, because I would love a portable system.

Good news, Circuit city exchanged it for another one.   They didn't even bother to turn it on to check for dead pixels.  Now I have a ds with no dead pixels and I'm loving it.

Gamestop was really good about working with me on my DS.  The first two I got from them in the electric blue color had dead pixels (2 on the first one, 3 on the second).  The third time, I opened it in the store and booted it up right there.  No dead pixels.  They were cool the whole time, and I've found a store that knows how to take care of me.  Because of that, I shop there.

On a different note, I went to the theater 2 weeks ago and noticed something on the screen.  I don't know if it was a tear or what it was but it was obvious when the movie had a bright scene.  It bothered me a little but I didn't complain or ask for my money back.  If there would have been more tears I probably would have asked for my money back.  I guess having 2 errors on something is my breaking point.

I have a PSP without any dead pixels. Is there any chance of developing them over time?
