    So, I suppose I have two options.

    I could try and get rid of that "dead/fixed" green pixel on my screen away as long as I have my phone flashing a variety of colors on its screen for an hour via YouTube video warning: seizure warning!!!

    here

    or

    Take it into the Apple Store (have  care plus, if it matters) and have the screen fixed.

    Typically, this wouldn't issue me, however, I view a lot of content on my phone so its been driving me nuts.

    Has anyone ever had luck fixing a dead/fixed green pixel by viewing those sort of videos for an hour on screen?

    It rarely works and only for certain types of pixel failures, but worth a shot. Give it an hour or two and if it's not fixed, Apple will be happy to replace it anyway.

    Now I feel sick. I didn't believe the warnings. Excuse me while I go throw up.....

    This is supposed to fix the screen? Get it replaced.

    Tried it for several hours. Pixel is still stuck, it's so aggravating lol.

    Yeah, I set up an appointment with a Apple at my mall. Thanks anyways!
