Line of dead pixel on screen?

Recommended Posts

Hi I am new to the forums, and the hudl 2

 

Anyway, I have recently bought a hudl 2 for about 10 days, played with it and it seems fine

 

But then after i keep it charged and do some "intense" gaming on it, a thin black line appears on the screen

At first, i thought a line of pixel is dead... so i did a factory reset on it, still a line of dead pixel

 

Call up support, they are happy to replace, took a few hours, but no worries

 

Next thing I know, picked up the tab, turn it on and the line is gone as if by magic, after not using the tab for a good few hours and fully charged.

 

The only reason I can think of is when it overheats, that particular line of pixel doesn't seem to like to do its things

Why i say it overheats is because I do play games for quite a few hours non stop, and my hudl does not have a case or anything to stand it up. And I laid it flat either on my bed or sofa, which is probably the worst thing for heat to escape

 

 

I am just wondering has anyone seen this overheating issue which cause the screen to malfunction, or it shouldn't really happen no matter how hot it gets

 

Also is it worth using something like setCPU to limit it a bit, or maybe just dont plug it in and play / stand it up with a case to let heat escape better?

 

 

thanks in advance

my hudl2 is kept almost permanently plugged in, as I play games for sometimes 12hrs at a time, I've never experienced overheating or screen corruption, but I do keep the hudl2 in a case and tend to have it positioned upright on my lap.

I would suggest that rather than using setCPU (which I think is pointless), you should maybe invest in a case.

Thanks, i am thinking will a case help, since they are not expensive to get in somewhere like amazon or even tesco's website

I bought the Tesco one as it fits nicely, also those I looked at on Amazon seemed a tad cheap n nasty.

£3.95 including postage with a free stylus/pen and screen protector. Though it was missing the magnets to keep it closed. 10 minutes with some velcro, 18mm elastic ribbon, needle and thread and it is now a custom made cover.

Sorry if my suggestion offended anyone's sensibilities, but I was only trying to help and did so based on the purchase I had made. I also read the reviews on the Amazon cases that I looked at at the time and the opinions of many were that they were cheap and nasty.

Thought I would update everyone but since nobody seemed to have an issue

 

 

I sent my tablet back for a replacement which did come the next day, so that was handy. Been using it for a couple days now, rooted and gaming like before. And no dead pixel, so i can only be certain my last one was a little faulty

 

The technical guy seems to think it has something to do with a loose connection

 

Anyway I guess the trouble of sending it back is worth it since i am suprised they did do a next day, and rooting the new device is actually a lot easier once you have everything setup first time round.
