stuck red pixel

Posted by joy

My nearly three year old PowerBook has a newly developed stuck red pixel smack in the middle of the LCD. While this same PowerBook suffers from the known LCD white spot issue, this red pixel is much more distracting - especially when trying to view anything on a dark background.

I don’t know why the pixel became stuck now, the only cause I can think of is that it was moved around a bit more than usual this past week.

Of course, I searched for a fix for my stuck red pixel and this blog entry has some suggestions such as massaging the area [insert your favorite innuendo here] around the red pixel and running a video flash program to hopefully unstick the pixel.
