    Lol why?? You can just buy New GBA SP LCDs, no need to buy an entire GBA SP...

    And that doesn't look like a stuck pixel to be honest, just looks like it's dirt. Then again the photo is quite blurry.

    if you got an AGS 101 to mod your original game boy. YOU DESERVE THAT! >:C

    btw, if its a really dead pixel, nothing you can do... maybe its dirt or the cable damaged?

    Check out this page for a GBA-era "stuck pixel fixer" software that tries to "massage" the stuck pixel into fixing itself by flashing lots of colors to the screen rapidly. http://pineight.com/gba/#stuck

    I know there is at least one other "stuck pixel fixer" program for the DS that works on the full 256x192 screen, but I don't remember the name of it.
