    If it's there all the time, possibly a dead pixel. If it's there only some of the time, perhaps it's something else.

    Try gently cleaning your camera lens with a Q-tip.

    Wrong forum.

    How people STILL mistake the MAC PRO forums for the MacBOOK Pro forums is beyond me.

    FYI, a dead pixel would be black. This is more likely a stuck pixel (or subpixel). That said, your advice is still good, GGJ.
