Identify dead or stuck pixels in LCD displays.

Overview

Pixinator is utility software for Mac OS X to help easily identify pixel defects on LCD displays. Pixinator presents black, white, and RGB backgrounds to make pixel defects stand out, has an intuitive interface for instantaneously switching or smoothly fading between backgrounds, allows simultaneous testing on all attached LCD screens, and doesn't take up much space (only 48k!).

Please visit the website for more information on LCD displays and pixel defects. It also includes a list of LCD manufacturer customer relations numbers so that people can let these companies know that pixel defects are a serious problem and can encourage them to improve their, or their supplier's, fabrication processes.

What's new in Pixinator

Version 1.2 adds the following:
  • automatic cycling and fading between background colors to further aid in identifying bad pixels, wherein pixel defects will show up as small dots that appear and disappear.
  • better support for multiple monitor environments.
  • improved help screen.

Um, just a question to those who posted before me: Did you guys check out the URL included in the package? There, you'll find how to actually use it (basically, you use the arrow keys to navigate through the different colors).

Great, and does exactly what it says it does! (Make sure you take a look at the website read me before jumping in) However, there IS one drawback... I never had any problems with my iBook's screen, and now that I realize that I have a dead pixel, it's hard to stop looking at it! Heh heh...
