    Default [Dead pixels] How can i remove them ?

    Ok guys, here is my problem.
    I unlocked my phone, everything runed fine. Then i started using it, but realized that i got 3 dead (or stuck) pixels. Its easy to see in a black screen. They are white.
    So id like to know if someone knows how to remove it. I tried this site, but it didnt helped me.

    i think you need to live with it, unfortunately. I don't know of a way to remove dead pixels.

    is it a dead pixel (no color information) or a stuck pixel? If it's stuck, you need to run that web app for a long time to unstick them.

    You could try and run ilight, its an app that opens up a fully white screen. It can be found on installer.app.

    "dead" pixels is not something you can remove or fix.
    if you live in the U.S. then my best solution is completely reverting your iphone into it's original state (not just the software restore...) and walk into an apple store and tell then you just got it and out-of-the-box you realized a dead pixel.
    they will probably have to replace it...

    Are dead pixels a common problem with iPhones?

    After handling dozens of iPhones I've come to the conclusion that a large majority of phones do come with a small amount of stuck pixels. In most cases you need to have perfect vision looking very carefully at certain angles when the screen is black on a high brightness, and unless you're looking for them you will never notice them. However there are some cases in where there are several and/or large stuck pixel blocks in which case it's worth pushing for a replacement.

    However if you try sending it back with 1 or 2 stuck pixels (the ones which you can barely see) it's likely you will be disappointed again with your replacement as this is the case with LCD that has 160 ppi cramed in.

    Had the same problem, but there's an easy solution. Just shake your phone for about 10 minutes and then move it quickly in circular motion (COUNTERclockwise! this is important).

    This should clear all stuck pixels ;-)

    Apple doesn't have a policy regarding dead pixels like some PC manufacturers have regarding LCD screens and that you can't get a replacement unless you have 8 or more pixels (sucks if you have 7!). Take advantage of this and get your unit replaced before Apple implements a policy. I seriously don't know why you guys are living with dead pixels!

    This guy has created an iPhone Dead Pixel removing app. Run this webpage through your iphone browser. The principle seems right in that it heats the temperature of the liquid based on particular colours to jog the pixel into becoming unstuck.

    Hope this helps some of you!
