    Yeah, as the title says I need a way to get some stuck pixel off my 3DS screen. I have a R43DS Gold flashcart and i want to know if there is a homebrew app that I can use that might be able to get the stuck pixels fixed.

    If it is in the middle of the screen then it might be fixable.
    Pixel fixer for DS mode can be downloaded >>here

    If you can hunt down a program called DiagnoSe, that has a pixel fixer also :)

    okay, thanks; I'll give these both a try. If nothing works, Nintendo says I can send it since i still have a warranty for it.

    Good luck on it.

    Just let it run for an hour and if it doesn't work send it to Ninty.

    Sorry, but it won't work for a 3DS. The placement of where the stuck pixels is close to the left side of the screen. If i run this program, that part of the screen is black out (ya know, DS mode on a 3DS and such). I'll just have to send it to Nintendo to have it fixed, and I can't shipped it till tues. Fedex is already closed today, and they won't be open on Sunday or Monday. Hehe, man i hate my luck right now.

    While I don't know if any exist, could a website designed to do the same thing (and run on the 3DS) work? It's just flashing colors, right?

    I forgot
    This...should be possible? If you can find one that works on the 3DS I think it'd work fine.

    Does the web browser load animated images?

    You could use that to load a GIF or something that has rapidly flashing colors like the pixel fixers use.

    Or a video but it's limited to 10min, is there a loop option when you play video?

    Ah, sarcasm.

    Try downloading and converting this for the 3DS then.

    I....I....
    **seizure attack**

    It's a good thing we've got a number of converters here at the Temp. The only thing though is that going by video doesn't help if the pixel problem is on the bottom screen. :(

    If its on the bottom screen, DiagnoSe will reach it. :P

    Good point.

    So, to sum it up for those new to this thread, if you want to revive/fix a pixel that is around the area a DS game would display (either top or bottom), then try DiagnoSe. If it is on the top screen on the sides where DS games aren't displayed, try the video approach, using one of the converters found here, and play it back in the Camera app.
