    Hello guys,
    March-16-09 21:30 PM PST -5

    Here I'll describe you my problem, I bought myself a new iPod Touch 2Gen 16 2days ago. I looked up at my screen and it seemed wierd... it was yellowish, I tried to restore, jailbreak, etc. and then finally, I went back where I bought it and they gave me a new one. and you know what? When I came back home There was still yellowish screen but even MORE and also some dead pixel.

    I just called apple and they told me, to go back where I bought it and get a new one. That's like the second time... Did the store only receive a ''BAD'' batch or what...

    What Should I do? Head directly to an apple store? Will they help me?
    Any other solution.

    Thanks,
    Jencryzthers

    You can fix the dead pixel, if it's really yellow, just take it back. Or get your money back and go elsewhere.

    Some screens have a yellow tint, some have blue, some have cyan, some have magenta. It seems to be the thing with the ipods and iphones. The dead pixel sucks though.

    I would suggest using the search button next time, as there are about 2.6 million threads already on this topic. Read what they have to say...

    As for the dead pixels, there is even a sticky in this thread about what to do if you have them... something to try at least. The tinting i dont think you will ever be happy with that.

    Apple is kind of stingy, is that were you bought it?

    I've noticed that all the 2G Touches have yellowish screens.... I jailbreak for friends, and compared side by side to a 1G, the 2G looks yellow every time. I have noticed this with 6 different iPods.

    That's odd, my 2g isn't even slightly yellow.
