System Utilities - Pixel Fix

Description: With proven technology that works, Pixel Fix is the first widget of its kind. Its sole purpose is to cure stuck pixels on LCD screens, by quickly scrolling through colors at incredible speeds. After several uses, Pixel Fix might unlock those stuck pixels! Try it, then post your results!


The Pixel Fix widget does not guarentee that your pixels will be fixed, but is definitely worth a try.

New in v3.0: Several updates, including:

-New Quicktime movie, that works better and faster, and now flickers not only green, blue, and red, but also black to work harder at those pixels.

This wdget is really awesome. When I awoke my PB G4 two weeks ago, i had a vertical line of black and green pixels across my screen. It was really distracting, and extremely annoying. Several of them repaired naturally, within a day or so, but the majority of them remained.

When i saw this widget, i got it, and cured almost all of the stuck pixels.

Thanks, hockey2891!

Someome has to make a widget of of something new tha hasnt been done. Lighten up Ian the Mac Fan, dont be such a jerk. Your widgets arent to good, compared to this member's widgets. If some one finds a widget useful, then it should have been made.

I haven't tried this yet, since I haven't had any stuck pixels yet *knocks on wood.* I'm going to download it though, because should I ever get stuck pixels, this sounds like it would be amazing! IanTheMacFan—I agree with shadelandstudios, you should lighten up. Most of the widgets that I find are the best and most useful are concepts that we've all seen before. One of the greatest things about the Dashboard, for me, is that it allows me to perform small, repetitive, and common tasks quickly and efficiently. In fact, this widget is more unique than every single one I usually use! Kudos to you, if this works!

Worked! I cant even believe it... Ive had this dead pixel for a few months, nothing seemed to fix it, UNTIL NOW!

I wonder if this widget should be resizable - seems a bit large for a single pixel fix.

Very nice— if I ever have a stuck pixel or would like to induce a seizure, I'll know where to look.

Dear Hockey - never mind what Ian the Mac Fan or whatever says, I don't have the knowledge or aptitude to make an app or widget or whatever so I am grateful for you doing this - he's just small minded. Why didn't you do it yourseld Ian??

This widget fixed my one stuck pixel - THANKS
