It can be regarded as normal, yes. All LCD screens will have a percentage of dead pixels, and no manufacturer will guarantee you get a dead-pixel screen on their products.

As you say it does not affect your photos and you can be assured it is not something that is going to get worse - it is a tiny manufacturing defect that is all, but within what they call acceptable limits.

If the camera is brand new you could always take it back and ask for another one, but they are within their rights (I believe) to say no for a single dead pixel.

Flexe on the microswitch under battery cover has come up and not making solid enough contact to power lcd screen, how do you fix this???


This is why I do have spare cameras. I don't think you can repair this yourself, but you can try ifixit dot com. There they have manuals, with pictures, instruction videos and lots of other things to show how to repair a camera (and other stuff) On the site you have to look yourself for the Canon camera or one that looks like the XTi
The switch not only powers your display, but inhibits the camera to work normal, to avoid memory failure caused when the battery is removed.

When i look through the view finder i see a black dot. What is that from?


This camera has an electronic viewfinder. It allows the image captured by the lens projected electronically onto a miniature display. It also allows you to see real time what ever adjustment you make on the camera(same w/ the lcd screen). That black dot that you're seeing could be dirt or a dead pixel. If it's a dead pixel it can't be removed.

It seems to be a dead pixel, best thing would be to have it replaced from the Seller, else you can get it replaced with a new working lcd panel. This may be an expensive solution.Check whether you have a worldwide warranty from Canon, that will help you on saving costs.

Help! Cracked LCD display on Canon Rebel xti


Had the same problem myself, I purchased a new lcd from ebay (user name: ProphotoSD). He has tons of factory LCD's, cost around 90$. Please note that if you cracked the clear cover above the lcd that is a separate piece however it wont effect the lcd working (this piece is also replaceable). Then I found a simple tutorial for disassembling the camera body on google. Took me like 25 min, very simple job, just need a very small phillips head screw driver. Hope this helps!

You could try taking it back to the store if the (what seems like) the dead pixels are "distracting" you or "annoying" and if you are lucky you might get it exchanged.

It partially depends on the amount of the dead pixels present as for an LCD screen to be classed as being defective 0.01% of all of the pixels on the screen must be "dead".

God luck if you will try to exchange it.

Canon 350D photos have a small red dot on them


if the red spot is always on the same place in each picture.... seems like a problem with the sensor ...

The sensor uses three channels to create colour... RED / GREEN / BLUE... one of the pixels for one of the sensors is gone

Dead Pixels???


It's a hot/stuck pixel. It's not dust. If it's always the same shade of white and on every shot it's stuck. If it's some shade from grey to white and only shows up on longer exposures, it's hot. Can't be fixed. Canon should be able to map it out, but I'm not sure of their warranty policy. Sometimes warranties on sensors specify a maximum number of defects. Very few, if any, warranty a sensor to be perfect, with zero dead, stuck or hot pixels. If you don't specifically look for it in a print, it's unlikely that you (or anyone else) will notice it.
