Hi, i have a question: can stuck pixels be fixed if they are all in a straight line that comes down across the screen? I m trying all these methods on my IMAC but its not working. Can you help me out?
As others have mentioned this is either a video card issue or bad/dying LCD column driver. The latter are not fixable (to the best of my knowledge.) while according to the poster above the former are a silent recall issue for the iMac.
I heard someone say to try moving a magnet piece near the stuck pixel..
T.T it didn't work I tried all the methods. That is one stubborn stuck pixel.

Ok, so i read this whole thing, and tried with no luck--- So my question is: Does this work on LCD HDTVs? I have a PS3 and got online with it, but couldn't get the applet to run. Oh and thanks for taking the time to do this!

Just out of curiosity, would this also work on my DS phat? I've got at least three stuck pixels on my top screen and one on the touch screen...should I bother trying, or could I just hurt it?

"PS: If you don't already know, this will obviously only work on LCD monitors." Should be the first sentence in the Instructable; not the last.
