    Showing off the Z2 last night and it had suddenly developed 10 dead pixels. No-one else mentioned it so I kept quiet whilst feeling very sorry for myself and planning todays phone calls on the matter.

    Not wanting to announce my new toy was faulty, yes i am that shallow:blush: I waited until everyone had gone home to check it out. There they were, a handfull of bright pixels but they seemed to be in different places than before.

    Standing near the screen I couldnt see them. Just then my wife came in to see what I was doing, she turned the lights on and thats when I saw the small pieces of tinsel on the screen that were catching the light depeding on where you were sitting.:suicide: We'd put the Xmas decorations up in the morning:rolleyes:

    A quick brush down and problem sorted :smashin:

    Pride comes before a fall :) Glad to hear, though, that dead pixel disease isn't spreading through the Z2 world - just a brief bout of tinselitis I guess :D
