    Dead pixel......

    Today I was rebooting my N900 noticed I have a dead pixel. Is anyone familiar with Nokia U.S.A
    warranty procedures?

    Thanks

    Are you sure its actually a dead pixel? Could you take a screenshot using the default keyboard shortcut method, and post it up on here. Dead pixels don't show up on screenshots, so this is a good method of ruling it out.

    Ok, so that pretty much confirms your findings, it is indeed a dead pixel. Your next step would be to contact your local Nokia Care Point, and arrange to either send your N900 in for a replacement, or personally take it to your local branch.

    Is it dead or stuck?

    Ie. is it black or another colour? If it's a coloured pixel, try this:

    YouTube - How To Remove A Stuck Pixel

    Whilst applying pressure to the pixel
