This is my P2. I turned the light off for a reason because you can see there's a line of pixels missing! It's already put together as tightly as possible and the batteries aren't faulty. This could either be a pixel glitch or maybe it got ruined at the circuit board.

Open the shell again. Check the green on the board. Check for gunk on the lighter green paths. Then check the silver blobs/soulder spots that they look silver. You can also look at the rubbery part on the part of display. Don't remove it just eyeball it if something is there. This typically works for me to fix screen displays. Remove the gunk with a qtip or gently with a flathead screwdriver.

If you want you can take a good (clear) picture of your circut board and I can try to see if something looks off. Usually, just a clean like I specified will work.

I have the same problem except my P1's missing pixels are in a vertical line~

I haven't taken apart mine because I'm afraid of damaging it :c

I don't mind helping you too EMF. Just take the back and the 4 screws off. That should be plenty.
