 NINTENDO SWITCH NEWS

Nintendo implies that the dead pixels in Switch users' screens isn't their problem

It's meant to have some dead patches

Product: Nintendo Switch | Manufacturer: Nintendo
 
Less than a week after the Nintendo Switch went live there's been some good news and now there's a little bit of bad news. It looks like some unlucky Switch owners are experiencing dead pixels in the screen, and apparently it's 'their problem'.



On the Nintendo Switch support page, a user commented: "There are black or bright dots on the Nintendo Switch screen that do not go away, or there are dark or light patches on the screen."

Surprisingly, Nintendo's support team responded with: "Small numbers of stuck or dead pixels are a characteristic of LCD screens. These are normal and should not be considered a defect." After forking out £280 for the device, I don't think that's what you want to hear. 

Obviously, the eager folks of Reddit began a discussion which grew to 2,368 comments, and counting. There's some speculation that some of these deadened pixels count be from drop damage - caused during shipping or at the warehouses - and that returning them to their place of sale was the best course of action. 

Are any of you guys experiencing something similar? Let us know in the comments below.
