    At least you have plenty spare pixels that aren't stuck. Just use them instead.





    ...Or lightly rub the stuck pixels to coax them back to life. Use a lint-free cloth or your underpants.

    that "pixel killer" video actually worked for me with my old powerbook. I did it for a while then turned off the laptop and when I powered it back up, boom, stuck red pixel was gone! it came back once and a while but a power down was all it need to get 'unstuck'

    Yeah, try playing ITASOR's movie behind them. Rapid colour changing can sometimes unstick them. :)
