Default Dead Pixels

Question- Just got my first S50 yesterday, so far no problems (knock on wood). But one thing I noticed, is that on the shut down screen there are 2 dead white pixels, does anybody know how to fix this? It is more of an eyesore then anything. thanks

Also, how do you change the wallpaper and is it safe?

Dead pixels on the SHUT DOWN SCREEN? That screen that flashes for about 1 second when you turn it off?

I wouldn't loose too much sleep over it.

As for the wallpaper, one of the savants on here has a program that works MINT. Even has all the replacement wallpaper.

I saw the replacement wallpaper, when I click on the link to download it is a bad link.

My background at shutdown has two white pixels that show up towards the bottom as well. As a more veteran S50 user, I would advise that you just let it be man.....just let it be. You could try changing the background but you will soon realize there are several little quarks that drive you batty!
