    try using a pixel fixer (or make one, its just an animation of flashing colors that flashed really fast) to unstick the pixel - maybe its not dead just stuck on black or something.

    do you need the case and the original headphones, when you return with dead pixel problem??

    because for the touch i have right now i only have the cable and the manuals

    i have my old 16GB box and iphone headphones

    my 8GB has a dead white pixel
