Stuck pixels after new LCD/Digitzer

I recently shattered my phone screen and ordered the iPhone 5 LCD Screen and Digitizer Full Assembly kit and installed it no problem, however after a power cycle I seem to have a stuck pixel blob(?) that is blue in color. It's not gigantic, but it is noticeable with white or other light color backgrounds. I didn't notice it when I powered it up after installation, only after another reboot of the phone.

I've tried JScreenFix and some youtube video that cycles through all the colors for roughly 30 minutes each, and ran a couple of extra passes but it doesn't seem to solve the issue.

In the first photo, you can kinda see it in the top left. As for the second photo, the blue doesn't seem to exist at all with the colors in the background.

I'm having this issue too only my blue discoloration is more of a blob in the upper half of the screen only visible when on white backgrounds. Any idea of a fix?
