Chip (or dust) in display of brand new DM42 :(

Post by rudi »

Sigh - almost immediately after turning my brand new (just arrived today) DM42 on, I noticed a large chip in the display.
This is very annoying and once you've seen it, it's hard to ignore.
Have just written Swicc Micros. I hope they can replace the glass. I hope not I have to send it back to Switcherland, then I will not see it again for a very long time...

PS: the other white specs are dust, that I easily could blow away.
PPS: but there's several more smaller ones. I tried to carefully wipe with lens cloth, but all the small white specs and the larger one does not vanish. Could it be dust on the inside of the screen?

Not sure that I will try to lift the glass :shock:
