    So, I've posted this problem on some other forums but haven't gotten a response. Probably should have came here first anyways.

    As you can see by the title it would seem I have a small light leak coming from the right side of my iPod Touch 3G 32GB.

    I bought it in December of '09 and just noticed it a few days ago while watching a movie in the dark.

    Is there anything I can do? Or should I just get a case that covers up the edges and leave it be?

    If you're still under warranty you can send it to Apple and they will most likely exchange it.

    I'm still under warranty. How exactly do I ship it to them. (Do I need to contact them? If so, how?)

    Thanks for your help.

    If you can, go to the shop you brought it from. Even if it wasnt an apple store, if its under warranty they will most likely send it away to test it, then give you a replacement.

    I got it from a BestBuy. And since I got it in December of '09 I don't have the receipt. You think they'll still take it?

    Hmm that sucks that you dont have a receipt. Did you leave your details when you bought it?

    Go on the Apple website, and go to warranty and do it from there. Very easy. You just have to post it to them.

    I've tried doing that but I can't find the problem I'm having.(Going into the service and repair section) Any suggestions?

    Thanks to all of you who have helped me so far, you guys are great.
