    Hello Guys,

    I just purchased my iPod Touch 2G (16GB) yesterday. And after playing around with it a little I noticed a light leak at the top end of the screen so heres the picture:

    The parts circled in the red are where the light shows. If you look at the iPod from the top you cant see it, but if you lokk from an angle you can see that light. Now im just wanting to ask you experts here if this is normall, or if I should get a replacement for it? Since I live in Germany I would have to send the iPod to Apple. I would be happy for and advices. Thanks guys.

    Alot of the 2g's have light leak problems.

    Send it to Apple if it bothers you, if not do what I did.

    I just bought a case that covered it up and kept it protected from dust.

    Thanks but if you look at the picture then you will see thats its not at the edge to the chrome bezel. Its right at the top end of the aktual touch screen.

    Well now I also noticed the bottom of the screen sometimes starts to woblle around. So now I contacted Aplle and now Im getting a new iPod sent to me and they will lokk at my iPod and see if something is wrong with it.

    The wobbling of the bottom screen was probably just an optical illusion but now im waiting for a confirmation mail from Apple. But im not quite sure if Apple will replace a iPod just because of light leaking. But I will keep you guys updated.

    They replaced mine no questions asked for light leaking around the edge at the chrome bezel. I am not quite sure I understand where yours is leaking from.

    the LCD in my 2G can jump around. If I shake it, it moves like 1-2mm.
    Doesn't really bother me though so I left it.
    Send it back to Apple only if it bothers you.

    Yeah.
    If you got a receipt, take it to an apple store.
