Agreed. This is a known issue with Stern displays. If it is still under warranty, Stern will send you a new one I believe.
The dreaded line . I have a game right now with that issue and I've seen it several times on others . Not really sure why this happens but it seems to be common .
I think I heard it was fairly long on the DMD. 9 months perhaps. Either way, I bet they will honor the warranty as it is a common problem and a lot of people have had to return theirs.
I was told by my distributor once it was 2 years, but have heard from others a year. Also I have read that the fix it to simply replace one block of the LED's I think the block right above the missing LED is the bad one. They are inexpensive, but your game will be covered by warranty. However stern will send you back to your distributor.
