Thanks for taking the time to do that. I went to Futureshop just to be sure and sure enough, no bars. The salesman told me that its definitely defective, and they have some in stock, so Ill swing by tomorrow and do a switcheroo.
I was thinking that maybe
this was caused by running nothing but breakin slides for the first 40 hours and the IR caused by the photo selection would have burnt in but I doubt thats the case.
Gah, I'm going to have to rerun this stuff all over again
. Sucks cause mine wasn't a buzzer and no dead pixels.
