    I have a question for everyone out there, do I have a dead Pixel? Let me explain: I have a iMac 21" bought it back in November. When i have my desktop wallpaper showing there is one pixel that will only show white, no matter what background pic I put up.

    It's dead center in the screen so i was immediately irritated, then i noticed when I open Safari (or anything else like finder, apps, docs...whatever) the white dot goes away. I tried messing around with it and putting up black background and a white back ground and I don't understand how this is happening. No matter the color of the wallpaper I can still see it, even a white background.

    Well, I thought dead pixels showed up in black, at least thats what a Mac technician told me.

    Yes, you're right: dead pixels are, not surprisingly, black. Would appear to be a stuck pixel rather than dead. Try this
