    ok so i got my N1 a few days ago, and everything is dope, very happy with it. But i noticed a pixel that is stuck.. very little but the fact that i just got it and now it already has stuck pixels is really lame.:rolleyes: Great phone though.:D

    anyone else have this on theirs?

    Nope, not got this, all is fine with my phone.

    Try a battery pull, factory reset, etc & if the issue is still there, I would report it and get an exchange.

    Dead pixel apps just display different colors on your screen to make it easier to identify them, there is no software fix for dead pixels.

    That's... neat and surprisingly convenient. Will bookmark this youtube clip if I ever do get a dead pixel.

    Haha, perhaps a warning to those with a predisposition to seizures: Do not watch.

    The cycling of different colors is in fact the fix...not just to help identify a stuck pixel. Though there is a difference between a stuck pixel and a dead pixel, the latter of which there is no fix for. Color cycling can in fact help stuck pixels in a high percentage of cases.
