    Hey,
    I purchased my ipod about 5 hours ago. After viewing a black page, I relized that I had a dead pixel! (a white one). It doesn't really bother me because it's only noticable when the screen is black, and its hidden by the mail icon on the home screen. I was wondering if anyone else has dead pixels. If so how many? Did you get your ipod with them, or did they show up after time?

    my ipod has never had a dead pixel. im sure apple will replace it, but sometimes it needs to be a minimum of 2 or 3 pixels to be replaced

    I don't think I'm going to replace it, unless more appear.
    I looked up dead ipod touch pixels on google and I came accross a web app that is supposed to fix stuck pixels, I'm going to try it out.

    Theres a website that you go to on your iPod that fixes dead pixels. It flashes the screen a bunch of differnet colors really fast, and it unsticks the pixel.
