Re: When to Return

Near the end of each camera's warranty period we each sent each camera in to get the hot pixels fixed.

I did test the cameras at 16.sec with the lens cap on for reference, but it wasn't necessary, since we could each see hot pixels in dark parts of ordinary photos with our cameras, so it was very obvious that they needed to be fixed.

We waited till the warranties were almost up so we would get another 6 months, in case any more hot pixels showed up, and it was a good thing, because I have had to send mine in twice so far.

If you have the Olympus 3-year (total) extended warranty, then send it in any time hot pixels are affecting your photos.

At what point did you decide to return the camera to get the hot
pixels mapped out ?. And, how did you test (lens cap on for how
long)?
