I have a stuck pixel on my screen! Help!

Yesterday I noticed three small stuck pixels on my screen, I know that they are small, but can be quite frustrating especially since it was so expensive. I know they are stuck not dead because they are white not black, I tried a few things like "massaging them" with a program, any other ideas? All comments are helpful

Thanks,

Sami

There is little one can do to fix a dead or always engaged pixel. I would bring the system into Apple if it's still under warranty. They should swap out your system (or display unit).

Even if the warranty has expired you might be able to get them to fix it. You might need to demonstrate your need for a perfect display as it's not uncommon for a few pixels to drop out over time. The more central in the display field pixel/s are, the more noticeable they are. If these are not in the center 1/3 of the display you'll have a hard time getting them to fix it.

However I believe that the pixels aren't dead but that they are stuck

In either case (on or off) the answer is the same. The LCD unit or the driver logic on the LCD unit has a problem. Sorry ;-{
