    Anyone else have this? It's been slowly growing from my upper right hand corner of the lcd and it's getting annoying. Looks like freckles :squint: I'm going to replace the lcd, just not anxious to drop the cash. Anyone else seen this issue?

    Nah, it's not a dead pixel. It's hard to describe and I don't know if taking a picture would even show it very well.

    I tried to take a pic but it came out really bad. After searching the web a bit last night it seems like it's the sign of the lcd dying. Oh well.
