    Faulty Pixels in LCD
    Bought my first Mac a few months back a Mac Book Pro which I love but nothing compares to my new 24" imac, its great!

    The screen is just fantastic but I have noticed just one issue, I have one pixel that remains red all the time.

    This is a problem with all LCD's, but do you think Apple would change my imac for one pixel?

    Or should I just try to forget about it?

    Am I being too picky or should I expect 100% perfection on a brand new product?

    Do any of you guys have this issue?

    Thanks

    Specs:
    iMac - MacBook Pro - iPhone - Nano - Touch
    If it's red, then it's just stuck. I used to have some links to sites that would run programs when I had a stuck pixel, but I can't find them now. Surely someone here has a link to one.

    I also have a dead pixel when I first turned on my MBP. Took it back to the Apple Store and they said 4 or more pixels have to be broken in order to get the screen replaced. They also said if they made their screens 100% perfect, their comps would cost even more. So they pretty much told that I payed them 3G for a broken pixel.
    Computer & TV: MacBook Pro 15-inch, Intel 2.2. iMac 20-inch, Intel 2.4. AppleTV 40G
    iPod: Nano black 4G, Touch 8G
    Phone: iPhone 4G

    Rapid colour changes can unstick pixels. Do you have the Apple Hardware Test CD that came with the computer? It runs a program rapidly changing colour of the pixels etc. and that may fix it?

    Thanks, thats good to know that its just a stuck pixel and not a broken one.

    Can you remember what that application is called that changes colours?

    Thanks

    It runs automatically when you launch Apple Hardware Test. Follows on after RAM, logic board etc testing.
