Re: New gopro's (just arrived today) screen has white on it?

@irishmanpdx do you think it will get worse? I don't want it to effect the touch screen (or me seeing the screen) in the future. Is it worth it to return and get a new one?

Re: New gopro's (just arrived today) screen has white on it?

No, it won't get worse, that's just the design of the LCD.  If you get another camera the chances are it will have a very similar issue.  If your LCD is working and responding to touch I honestly wouldn't worry about it.

Re: New gopro's (just arrived today) screen has white on it?

The new one will be better or worst...it is just lottery. I would stay with this, it is normal wont be worst and better. Check your monitor ot tvset or some lcd screen of some unit - display black screen and you will see like bleed is on each of it.
