Is There Any Way To Fix A Defective Pixel?
This is a re-print from Samsung located at:
If your LCD screen has a stuck or dead pixel, it's usually because the liquid in the liquid crystal display (TFT LCD) has not covered that pixel fully. Try the following steps to spread the liquid and unstick the pixel:
1. Turn your computer on, but leave your monitor off.
2. Using a soft cloth, gently apply pressure to the area where the stuck pixel is. Confine the pressure to the area where the stuck pixel is located, as applying pressure outside this area may cause additional stuck pixels.
3. While applying pressure to the stuck pixel, turn on your monitor.
4. Remove the pressure. In most cases, the stuck pixel will now work correctly.
