    It seems my ipod has backlight bleed, and i want to bring it to bestbuy for repairs but i'm scared they're going to mess it up more, or scratch it. Ill post some images, these are fairly accurate, do you think its worth bringing in? Now the most important question, will this get worst? Thumbnail sucks,

    Take it to an apple store near you. They won't mess it up.

    Does it make it hard to use your iPod?

    what does it mean when it's bleeding?
  6. I don't think you should take it to an Apple store 'till you un-jailbreak it because it voids the warranty.

    well, it means that the backlight for the LCD can show through some areas more than others, like the corners. http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/8467/k005j.jpg you can tell that the corners and the middle is kinda blotchy. All LCD suffer from this but i'm not sure if mine would be considered bad. Also if i bring it in to apple you have to set up dates with the genuis bar ppl and its a hassel. Will best buy replace or repair?

    Best buy no. They sell the device, they don't make it. You would have to go through apple if you want it free repair or replace.

    Otherwise, if its after 30 days and you go to best buy, your only option is to get it replaced at $200, $270, or at $358, depending on the model (if you can't tell, I means to say they will sell you a new one).
