    So I've had my Droid RAZR MAXX for almost two months now and earlier today as I turned the back light on, I see this bright green dot, what I assume to be a dead or stuck pixel. Considering that the phone was a hand-me down from my mother who purchased it back in March, the device was in "just like new" condition with no drops, spills, scratches, shock damage, etc. I have kept it in that condition and find that misuse is NOT the culprit here. Attached is a picture of my screen with this annoying little problem. Hope anyone can help. :happy3:

    Note: I do apologize for the garbage quality of the picture, the only camera I have on hand is the iPod 4G one. View attachment 57723

    Why don't you do a screen shot. Wouldn't it would be clearer to see then?

    I tried, the screenshot does not capture the green dot.

    Screen shot only captures the information being sent to the screen, but isn't really a "picture" of the screen. The only way to capture what the screen is actually displaying (as in this stuck pixel), is to use another camera as the OP has done.

    You appear to have (as you suspected), one or more stuck pixel(s). There are some successes in getting those pixels un-stuck by using utilities found in the Play Store for free which "cycle" all the pixel primary colors and then the secondary (mixed) colors, so as to "excite" and "exercise" the pixel circuitry at full brightness intensity and hopefully work out the causes. You may need to run more than one utility and toggle back and forth between several. Also, you may need to run them for extended periods of time to assure yourself that if the pixel is repaired, it won't re-occur, or if the repair seems to be unsuccessful, that it is given enough time to have the desired effect.

    I have recommended several in the past and those members reported 100% success but your results may vary. Some allow you to work just one color, others do their own routine of cycling.

    Of course, if the problem is of a permanent failure nature, or if the problem is NOT a display issue but instead a Video Controller failure, you may have no success.

    Try one or more the following:

    Good luck! :biggrin:

    It worked after I let the pixel curer run off and on yesterday and was quite saddened when I woke up to find it still there, but I turned my screen off and on again, and it was gone. Thank you very much for all of your help!

    Wow, FoxKat...you the man! Second thing I learned in DF today! I had no idea dead pixels could be fixed. Great that it is successful...very cool!

    Thanks, tis. I have always given my 100% to this forum for the benefit of the members. Nothing makes me happier than making others happy. This is how I live my life, but sometimes I am misunderstood. I only hope that the real me shines through and people recognize me for what I am. The members do, evidenced by the number of likes.

    FoxKat can correct me if I'm mistaken, but it's my understanding that, while stuck pixels can often be fixed, dead pixels cannot be fixed.
