i just got my 60d today from JR.com and i got 2 dead pixels, so upset right now. i tried to fix it using the same method on my previous 550d. i had a dead pixel on the 550d too but fixed it by putting body cap on and doing the censor clean. this time it didn't work on the 60d. any help would be greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't cry about it either, 2 dead pixels is nothing. You might send it back and get one with a lot more in return. Your photo software should get rid of it for you anyway if you use LR 2/LR 3 or PS4/PS5.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Live with it, its perfectly normal and actually maybe better than normal. Get the camera to map them out.

1) how can you even tell?
2) it's normal
3) sending for another body may not resolve it as there are tolerances for this sort of thing and most software programs can map them out and remove them. not even mentioning that a big booger of dust or shutter oil spatter on the photosensor will look much nastier and is inevitable

If its just new you could take a chance and send it back and see if you get a better one.

With .00001% error, no, not a quality control issue.

I would be the type to send it back though you might also try doing the manual sensor clean trick

take the lens off, put the body cap on and turn on manual sensor cleaning for about 1 min. that might clear it up for you.
