I wonder if Dell will really RMA one for "less than three" dead pixels.

I dug around the Dell site, couldnt fine a place to buy "parts". Do you have a linky?

Thanks

So, "did" anyone else besides the one person end up with dead pixels on their Bliss screen?

I bit late for a reply, but it's worth answering

And that answer is "maybe".

I always thought that 1012's without the Broadcom decoder were probably missing the slot. I've seen pics of a 1012 without the slots, and it'd match the missing WWAN slot on most Mini 9's. But when I went to upgrade my base 1012's WiFi, I noticed the WWAN and Broadcom slots appeared to be present.

In the end, there's no way to know, other than direct inspection. Pop the palmrest off and look (see the service manual for info and/or search Google for "1012 upgrade").

Just installed the new screen, it was easier than expected. Got it from Bliss, two dead pixels.

I am not happy about dead pixels...but their site says less than three means no return, and I doubt I will hassle with it.

For what it's worth, the screen is beautiful...wish I had done it sooner. It's just like others said, a whole new machine. Well worth the price, even with the dead pixels. I try every day to fight OCD just a little more, guess this is just one more way!

Unhappy old lcd - 03-03-2011, 08:13 AM

anyone have there old lcd screens lying around? accidentally cracked my brothers lcd on his mini 1012 while being reckless. I would be forever grateful. im a college student, and cant afford an upgrade or new lcd for my brothers netbook. I live in California, in the San Diego area, it would be wonderful if i could buy it off you for a reasonable price, or I could pay for you to ship it to me.

Hey cchea,
I have my original one still, that you can have. I used it for about 2 weeks while I waited for my bigger screen to arrive.
PM me, and we can talk offline.

Hey ShrewLWD, I cant pm yet until I get 5 post, so I'll post here. Where are you located at? If you aren't local, can you ship it? If so, how can I repay you. Thank you so much.
