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

Thanks in advance!

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.

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.

    Start a new thread in the 3DS board, the chat box is not the best place to ask for such advice.

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).

  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.

    For some reason, some Amazon reviews said it was a scam 'cause it launch there before they made an official launch on their webpage...anyway, according to people, it's good...it was gonna be my first option to buy when I wanted something to farm in games automatically, but then I backed down since tax fees and shipping would have costed me a fortune to Mexico...
