    maybe you all can help me. Not sure if it's fitting the description of stuck pixel but it does fit the description of burn-in. On a black screen (like when watching a video or the black setting on a flashlight app) you can see a very faint charge indicator and the word iPod, then the same thing on the right side except vertically. It looks like a very dim white bar across the top and right side, being most noticeable in the very top right corner.

    Input anyone?

    This would be the first case of anything like this that I will have ever heard of. Pictures would be nice.

    that's exactly what it is. I don't have a decent camera but let me go use my neighbors... brb

    EDIT: I contacted apple, they said they'll replace it but I'll show you anyway.

    try taking a screen shot, if it shows upit would have to be software issues wouldnt it? if it doesnt it would be screen burn in or sumthing along those lines.

    I can see no white bar. =/

    Unless you mean the lighter bit really close to the top and sides. But I don't see any iPod, or charge indicator.
