    I've got my new Classic and it has one dead pixel in the center of the sceen. I know it's just one little black dot and I still can do all of my communications. Is there anyone who has the same issue and didn't bother to get a replace?

    Contact the seller for a replacement? Did you buy it as-is or was there a quality guarantee?

    There was almost no guarantee. After two days I think it's not a big deal to have one dead "body" on the screen among millions of alive pixels. Just were curious whether someone has the same issue and how it's to live with one dead pixel...

    I'm not sure if the classic screen is as easy to replace as the Z30. But the screens are selling for 50-70 dollars on eBay. Maybe you could buy a "parts" classic for even cheaper. There are several videos on YT for repairing the classic.

    All you have to do is determine it its worth it to repair it. Or just live with it. Your brain will learn to tune it out and not notice it after a while unless you're looking for it.

    Check for an app that scrambles the screen to remove stuck pixels.

    The playbook was notorious for this and sometimes you could use an app to remove it.

    If it's a true dead pixel though, then you should replace the screen or just accept it if that's not possible.

    Are you sure that you have a dead pixel, and not a stuck pixel? My understanding was a dead pixel was not fixable,however a stuck pixel could be fixed either by massaging the screen, or by using various software solutions.

    Yep, as I said before I have a dead (that is Black) pixel, and not stuck. So, i'll try to live with it. Hope, soon my brain will stop to notice it just as I don't notice socks on my feet... lol
