View Full Version : dead/stuck pixel

Jan 11, 2006, 05:44 PM
When I turned on my 5G iPod 30GB today, I noticed a stuck blue pixel on the black loading screen. This is most noticeable under darker colors. It goes away sometimes, but it always comes back. I have tried turning it off and on but nothing has helped. Is this something my warranty/Apple will cover?

I just remembered that I had bought the iPod from BestBuy with the 3-year extended service plan. I was told that this covers anything wrong with the iPod and they just give you a new one if anything is wrong. I will probably be going to BestBuy tomorrow, so I will post back to let you guys know how it turns out.

Tried rubbing the pixel?

I thought about that, but the whole front of the iPod is plastic and it protects the LDC underneath, so when you touch the iPod's screen, you are just touching the plastic over it.

I thought I had the same problem for a while, but I think it was just some water or something under my invisibleshield. I rubbed it with my finger, and it went away.
