    i seem to have either a stuck or dead pixel in my macbook. how can i tell if it is stuck or dead. and also what are some methods to revive a stuck pixel. (i have tried a damp cloth, massaging, and the flashy video thing)

    Well then, it would appear as though you're (oh boy oh boy oh boy) stuck with it!

    If it's always one color (red, green, blue, or occasionally some combination of two of those), then it's stuck. If it's always black, it's dead. That simple.

    As for how to fix it, you've already tried everything that might work. You're down to options E and F: Try to get it replaced from wherever you bought it, or live with it.

    well it seems to be red and blue, because it blends with those colors in the flashy video, but not green. so does that give me any hope

    The flashy video thing is your best bet since its a "lazy" pixel, maybe you are using the wrong video, try other flashy video things, Sony had a pretty good one for lazy pixels in the PSP.

    If you didn't get a seizure it's not good enough.

    Try that one. I made it a really long time ago based on the one for the PSP, but people have told me it has worked where the PSP one hasn't.

    ... if it ever works.

    The chances of these things actually working are very slim imo. Good luck with it.

    Yeah, if you aren't willing to convulse on the floor you obviously aren't worthy of an unstuck pixel. :mad:
