Almost 3 month old MBP...just annoyed with it, but thought it was cool that I was able to take a picture of it with my iPhone 3G using the DVD player lens mod.

Is there a point to your post?

Are you looking for advice or something or just wanted to blog about your MBP with a dead pixel.

My desktop LCD had 2 stuck pixels, I went on youtube and used a stuck pixel video that flashes colors used my finger to massage the screen. To my suprise it worked.

I tried the instructions in the wiki link (except for the heat one) and the youtube videos... no such luck. Thanks for your suggestions!

I think you boast in most of your posts about how good your 'badboy' is. So be quiet.
haha....agreed

only thing badboy about his laptop is its a mac...otherwise its the same as everybody else's.

15" just means he got suckered into paying more....haha

so apple india refused me a rma as it doesnt meet their pixel count.. apparently a single dead pixel isnt much of a issue to them... any1 have ideas? or should i just live with the dead pixel and wait for more to show up..i just got this in july!! and its so pissing off that they wont replace the screen.. payed more for a premium product just to find out they are the same as any other .

should i even bother to get applecare 2 yr extension? or wil it help and they should rma it if i have it??

Smash it with a hammer. Keep smashing the screen until you can't see the dead pixel any more. I guarantee that after doing that you won't be able to see the dead pixel any more.
