    Well.

    I have a cluster of many blue, Red, Green dots in the very middle of my Ipod's screen.

    They started coming along about a week after I got my ipod sometime in december.

    I didnt want to turn it in because they would just give me a new one, And I dont think you can jailbreak the new OTB 1.1.3 models?

    They have only gotten worse since then.
    It used to not be a big deal because they would go away after about a few min of use.

    But now there is about.. Well.

    I lost count =/

    And they dont ever go completely away.

    There is always two green dots, if not the several others.

    I was wondering if there is a way to fix these.

    I hear there is some app you have to run to possibly fix these?

    Im quite confused.

    Any suggestions?

    (I am afraid this is a dumb question, Please answer with out sarcasm or insults, I just need help)

    sounds like a hardware problem bro. you should restore it, add your songs and stuff as if it were a normal ipod touch that you were still using, and take it into the apple store

    first sorry if i sound mean but do a search on stuck pixels first before you post there are a couple of topics if i remember off the top of my head

    2nd i think there is a way to fix it but the only two i can think of are flashing RGB rapidly and pushing down on the stuck pixel that or i'm thinking of dead pixels

    Restore. Maybe someone makes a screen test app.. IDK.. Try Restoring it. Then if that doesnt work go to Apple.

    I think it's just your ipod
    I had that on my old DS, just two pixels, one blue and one red
    they never went away, but on my new DS (lite), there are't any
    Try getting an Ipod on ebay or something
    Thats where I got mine, and it's worked perfectly!

    Thank you both for your responses.

    I tried running the website.

    But no luck =/

    I ran it for about a minute.
    How long should I run it for?

    Im afraid of freezing the pixel

    makeafist - have you tried rebooting your iPod? Restoring?
    The new OTB iPods can be jailbroken. In fact more easily because they now supposedly have 1 HD (besides 32 GB) and ZiPhone is a real jailbreak...
