dim spot on screen? Or just quality of backlights?
« on: February 19, 2004, 12:06:48 pm »
Hi all.  I just got a 5600, and it looks to be like there\'s a dim spot on the screen -- upper right-hand-corner, about the width of the \"OK\" button.

It\'s there all the time, and it\'s readable, I really only notice it stand out when that whole area of the screen is white.  

Is it a bad screen/backlight?  Or is that just how those backlights always fire, in this imperfect world of ours?

Anybody know?

Thanks.

Depending on the angle I hold it at, mine sometimes has a dim spot visable in the same corner (upper-righthand).  I think it\'s because the Z uses a side-light  instead of backlight, so you will tend to get an uneven distribution of the light accross the screen -- tolerences in the manufactruing process and all.
