The Vita is great, the games are superb, but I have a dead pixel (bright blue and obvious) and I keep having to do a hard resey becouse it keeps crashing, I bought it from Game Online, does anyone know if I can take it into the shop to get it replaced?

Yes I suggest you not only deactivate your account but also reset the Vita to get rid of all your personal information.

You should be able to exchange it in one of their stores. I know anything you buy on their online retail site can be taken to one of their stores for a refund or exchange. At least anything I've bought on their site and wanted to return I've been able to do so in a store.

Thanks, I'll do that on my day off, do you have to de-activate the account like a PS3, or will taking out the memory card be enough.

I had that on my vita, was actually a stuck pixel and was easily massaged out by pressing light on the screen where the pixel is. I would recommend making sure the screen is off first tho

Freaky, why would that even work on OLED?

 

It makes sense on LCD as you actually force the liquid to move, but OLED - I suppose it must be a loose connection?

I had a bright red pixel show up in the center of my screen today. I tried a few "pixel fix" videos from youtube and the massage technique, but neither worked until I combined the two. I really didn't have to press very hard on the screen, and it worked surprisingly quick.

Well, nevermind. When it went away I turned it off feeling relieved, but just now I played it for about 15 minutes and it came back. Tried the same method I did before and it's not going away this time. Even if I can fix it again I'm certainly not looking forward to this being a constant problem
