PiTFT Plus 2.8" TFT Resistive Dead Pixels?

by KnightTerror on Thu Jan 11, 2018 10:55 pm

Hello,

I just received my very first Raspberry Pi and I decided to order the PiTFT Plus 2.8" to go along with it as well. I received it all today and it was all fairly simple to assemble. The harder part was learning how to get the correct kernel installed to get the screen actually working (brand new to Linux as well, lol.)

Anyway, my problem is that there are 2 parallel lines running down my PiTFT. I'm not sure if they are dead pixels, or if the screen was damaged in transit. Am I right for posting this here or do I need to send a ticket in? I didn't see an option relating to damaged products. Thanks for the help.
