If you're saying that you have a non-working or stuck on one color pixel, return the device to your retail seller for an exchange. I know of one other person (I've heard of) with a bad pixel.

Good luck.

Re: stuck pixel

i was hoping an app could fix it. My pb is great the only issue is the stuck pixel that stays green in black or blue screen.

Re: stuck pixel

No, there's no app to fix hardware problems.

Sorry, good luck.

Re: stuck pixel

No fix found yet, I even had the screen helper app running for 4 hours and nothing. You have the exact problem I have. And rim is very silent on this issue and that troubles me. Other than that I love my playbook I'm just waiting for some good apps cause the ones on appworld suck big time.

Re: stuck pixel

The "great apps" thing is your opinion as appworlds current app selection being weak is mine. I am aware that rim has a one year warranty on the playbook but does it cover stuck or dead pixels? And by the way don't misunderstand me I am a hard core blackberry user and a loyal customer who really believes in rims products. But I am a realist. I have followed the playbook daily every day on the internet since the day they announced it in September, however its clear my people up at rim had some drama to get this pb out there. I say that cause its clear in the "lack of" stuff its missing. But as of today I wouldn't trade my pb for any other product. I just wish rim would get fired up about some things that are very important to us. I have written to so many developers asking for the playbook app and they all respond the same thing. We are waiting for rim to come up with the update that allows us to configure android apps. Its amazing  4 out of 5 developers said the same thing. Also I can't download a single file from the internet at all to install on my pb. So that's my sorrow at this time. But if this was a marriage I would be the super faithful spouse. :smileyhappy:

Re: stuck pixel

The "technical" term is "dead pixel" by the way.
