    I have a few stuck pixels on my DS. Is there anyway to fix them, other than buying a new screen?

    Thanks in advance!

    Isn't there a thing that flashes different colours and fixes the dead pixels?

    If they are stuck pixels then there is still hope, you could use one of the many pixelfixer homebrews out there. If the pixels are dead however, then you're out of luck.

    Dead pixels are white or black and are impossible to fix. Stuck pixels are the brightly colored ones like blue or red, these are fixable by flashing different colors really fast on the screen for a long period of time. Some say that putting light pressure on the screen while doing it may help as well.

    I have fixed two DS consoles stuck pixels by doing this myself. The first time it only took a couple of minutes, the second time I had to have the DS on for hours until i fixed itself.

    Some of them are black and some and blue. I don't think I did anything to make the pixels die though [IMG]

    DiagnoSe has a good pixel-fixer app.

    Of course you didn't, they become like that during production. The blue pixels you have are probably fixable, but the black ones are there to stay.

    I've had it for ages. The black ones change colour when I put pressure on them.

    I think it is time to replace the screen or the unit.
