    heya, im new to this forum so be nice to me!! lol

    Right, ive just bought a nikon d40 and when the screen is on but black, for example DURING start up, there are 2 bright red specks.

    Is this something i should worry about?

    Thanks.

    I just recieved a d40x and noticed something similar, i get one small green dot. I believe these are just burn out pixels, so you should have anything to worry about. I dont even really notice anymore, just when there a black screen.

    So i hope this doesnt indicate a weakness and more is gonna happen to the screen?

    Its not gonna affect performance or lead to any future problems, its just a minor annoyance.

    So dont go blaming your crap pictures on your messed up pixels, haha
