    Just perfect, I just started playing around with the thing, and I open up photo I loaded on it that is mostly dark, and lo and behold! A stuck green pixel! Just perfect, now I know I'll see it every time I look at the screen.

    Is there a policy for dead pixels on iPods? It's only one stuck pixel. Chance of a swap?

    This is so annoying. My first dead pixel on any apple product I've ever owned.

    Okay, first, is it a stuck pixel or a dead pixel? You used both words inter-changably. By the sound of it (green pixel) its just stuck. Try googling "stuck pixel" to get a video or help on that.

    Also, AppleCare won't fix/replace the iPod if there is just one stuck pixel, sorry!

    Just fixed mine, with a quick google search:

    Get to the diagnostic wizard by resetting your ipod then as soon as you see the apple logo press the centre button and the back button at the same time. Press menu, IO, Display, Color and keep pressing the centre button to go through the colours. No need to upload images, easier this way.
