Good little app. Nothing more than what it says it is. Displays colors to make it easy to see if you have a dead or stuck pixel. It might be nice if the mouse cursor would disappear when the colors were displayed so that the cursor doesn't block anything. Other than that, very simple, easy to use, and free. You really can't go wrong.

Oops I meant 'no', that is not a joke. Dead pixels on a CRT are indeed real... rare, but real.

Yes. CRT defective pixels are real & exhibit themselves as black holes in an all white raster. This is due missing phosphor material or an obstruction in the shadow mask.

Ah, I had just the same idea a couple of years ago and wrote a tiny little Classic app that cycles through exactly the same color pattern. Anyway, I have a dead pixel right in the middle of my screen! Boo-hoo. I actually thought there were more on the left half, but if this app works correctly, I was wrong. Yes, useful app. Now I don't have to write it anymore. An improvement would be if one could locate the dead pixels (if found) with the mouse, possibly by zooming in, and then produce a list of their X Y locations. But nobody really needs that, do they. Are you serious about the "massaging the pixels" hint? Where'd you get that from?

Very good program! I used it on a couple of my machines and it worked great. No dead pixels on my monitors. Just wish it ran on my Apple II. I pressed PR#6 but nothing happened? Overall a great program though!
