Is there any way to fix dead/frozen pixels on an old Phat DS?
Any comments are appreciated! Thanks!
I remember there was a program, that let you check all the functions on the ds, like the buttons and so on. There was also a deadpixelchecker in there, and I used it once to cure a dead pixel.
I just can't remember the name....
DiagnoSe is the homebrew you are looking for
ah ok thanks guys!
is it safe at all to use though?
As far as I know, DiagnoSe doesn't have any danger, unless of course, you're sensitive to very small flashing squares, as opposed to the huge flashing screens in other places.
ah alright thanks, ill try it out now.
Am I supposed to keep it flashing in the dead pixel area for a certain amount of time and hope that it fixes it?
I don' think its working
...the pixels are probably too damaged to fix...
Well, there is always the option of getting a replacement screen.... Just google "DS replacement screens" or just search for them on ebay!
EBAY NEVER FAILS!!! EBAY TO THE RESCUE!!!
Nope, you should leave it on for a couple of hours. Success not guaranteed though.
Well I dont really want to buy a new replacement screen...
And really? a couple of hours? Isnt that a bit much? (Maybe not cause I know nothing about this...lol)
And the surrounding pixels wont get damaged if I leave it there for a couple of hours?
As far as I am aware the flashy is to prove which pixels are dead.
No amount of time will magically repair the damage, it's chemical.
well thanks for the info
you speak some truth...if the pixel is truly "dead" it will be dark when you turn on the ds screen, and yes, it is impossible to fix this....if, however, the pixel shows as green or red or blue, for example, then it is only "stuck" and not dead as such...it is these "stuck" pixels that the flasher in DiagnoSe is designed to fix, not the "dead" ones..
