Stuck pixel(s) in your VR headset?  Hopefully this simple little tool will help.

WARNING: This app flashes colors into your headset at 45 fps-- DO NOT look into the headset while running the tool, it could potentially be bad for your eyes.  Especially if you are epileptic or sensitive to flashing lights, I repeat DO NOT WEAR the headset during use of this tool.

DISCLAIMER:  There are no guarantees that this will fix anything.  Not all stuck pixels are fixable (at least by this method).  You are responsible for your headset and anything you do with it. 

How does it work:  Currently it flashes between Red, Green, and Blue at 45fps.  If there's science that points towards better methods, lmk!

If you have any feedback, tips, etc, feel free to comment below.  I'd definitely like to improve the tool, to get the best success rate possible.  This tool is free of charge, but if it actually fixes a stuck pixel for you, please consider donating a few dollars!  I am a solo independent game developer who could sure use the money in pursuit of my dreams! :)

this tool should be compatible with all major VR headsets but will likely ONLY help on hedseats with LCD displays (So most of the Windows Mixed Reality headsets)


Simply run the .exe, the tool starts working automatically. SPACEBAR will toggle a black screen which you can use to check for stuck pixels (they are easier to see on a black background).
I suggest running the app for a few hours.  I hope it works for you!
