    Hi, I have two green pixels on the bottom portion on my screen and they seem to be sprouting up quite fast and I am worried about the quality of the screen.
    1st. Are these called dead pixels? Stuck pixels? What?
    2nd. What can I do about it, can i go to apple if more pop up and trade it for a new one? :D

    Just wondering about my options,
    Thanks,
    ChrisN

    They're called stuck pixels if they show a color. There's a widget that will usually take care of them: PixelFix

    Tanj, didn't see the forum. Sorry!

    That's cool, and I noticed it takes care of any LCD screen. :cool:

    I had the green pixel problem on 2 different iPod Touches. My local Genius Bar was more than happy to swap them out for a new one both times. In fact, the 2nd time the green pixels would come and go, and when I brought it in I explained the situation and they swapped it out even though the pixels weren't showing.

    I'd bring it in. :)
