    Yup, see previous thread. In the 10D book, it's page 10.

    Yup, see the previous thread "My new 300D". In the 10D book, it's on
    page 10.

    In the section called "Handling Precautions" in the front of the manual,
    it says:

    "LCD Panel and LCD Monitor

    (1) The LCD monitor is manufactured with very high
    precision technology. However, there may be a
    few dead pixels where a black or red pixel is
    always displayed. They number no more than 0.01
    percent of all effective pixels. They are not a
    malfuction and do not affect the images recorded."

    Scott.

    Do you honestly expect Canon to say otherwise? It's like a used car
    salesman saying, "they're all like that".

    Nothing Canon says on the warranty card or in the manual, overrides your
    statutory rights.

    Yeah, but like I said in the other thread - how is a fault defined in
    any given product? Not just for the LCD... for every part of the camera
    and it's functions.

    I don't think that they are in breach of any laws - every laptop
    manufacturer states the same thing about lcd screens. They are just... like
    that... as you said...

    Saying that, I'm sure a manufacturer won't deny you a replacement if there
    are a few dead pixels when you first open the box. Take it back a few months
    later, and that might be another story...
