I have afew dead pixels on mine, they arent that big of a deal though because you can only tell when the screen is black

lawl.... Dead pixels are pixels, or little squares, on the screen that are not working. They can be frozen in one color, or simply not leave black. And he only has one PSP, but 2 dead pixels.

yea, its a common thing, it might be from rough handeling... maybe a case to prevent this in the future. ive known pixels to die from pressing too hard on the screen or batteries suddenly dying... id recomend energizer e2 lithium or titanium... lithium are like nuclear generators, they cost alot, but they take forever to kill (if psp takes aaa you may not be able to find them, aa should be easy to find)

ive been on a few forums about that issue and i think its funny when people get mad when they have like one dead pixel, i dont like people like that.

I think it's funny that people buy the thing knowing they have issues with dead pixels and then complain about it. I realize it's not cheap, but that's why I don't have one. If I'm dropping $300 on something it better not have known quality issues from the factory.

ya, i might just return it to see if i can get somthing better because im the only one with this problem out of my friends who have 0 dead pixels, i dont know if its a common thing or not.

does anyone reccomend that i return it because of 4 (found 2 new ones) dead pixels and get a new one.

Yea you can't touch the actually screen, there is a layer of hard plastic in between

If you can get it returned in the store, go for it, theres nothing to lose.

If you have to mail it and deal with Customer Service, screw it, and live with it. LOL.
