    I got my new iPod 2G today... but it has a red dead pixel and it's quite frankly pissing me off.

    What can I do?

    That's a stuck pixel - not a dead pixel.

    Either way, return it for another one. It shouldn't have a flaw like that out of the box.

    Apple is far away.
    It's not in the middle of the screen.
    It's sort of... not on the screen at all. It's on the black border part. But that just pisses me off even more coz it's visible.

    You know on your TV, you can see like... light shining through the black border when the TV is on?
    That's what it's like.

    Return it. Odds are that it will ALWAYS be there.

    I'd need to send it off.
    Nearest Apple shop to me is over 100 miles away.

    Has anyone tried that Pixelmiester thing on App Store that flashing your screen to try and get rid of deads?

    i had a stuck pixel with my first gen touch right out of the box. i tried playing a video from youtube that flashed the colors really fast and it did not fix it. i went to the apple store only 2 weeks later and they replaced it, however they gave me a refurbished one. hella pissed me off. the one they gave me had cosmetic flaws and later discovered a few other issues it had. took it back the next day and they gave me another one. this one works ok but again has cosmetic flaws. im really pissed about the whole thing. im wondering if in a couple months they will start replacing first gen with second gen under waranty. then i can just go back and have them replace this one again.
