Get all the information on the stuck pixel. What is a stuck pixel? How are they formed? and.. frequently asked questions.
Stuck vs. Dead Pixels
Have you ever noticed that a pixel - a little dot on your computerís LCD monitor - is staying a single color all of the time? You have a stuck pixel. Luckily, stuck pixels arenít always permanent.
Stuck and dead pixels are hardware problems. Theyíre often caused by manufacturing flaws - pixels arenít supposed to get stuck or die over time.

Stuck pixels are different from dead pixels. A stuck pixel is a single color - red, green, or blue - all of the time. A dead pixel is black instead.
While itís often possible to ďunstickĒ a stuck pixel, itís much less likely that a dead pixel will be fixed. While a dead pixel may simply be stuck at black, itís possible that the pixel isnít receiving power at all.
A faulty pixel displaying the color white all of the time is known as a ďhot pixel.Ē
Do you have any dead pixels? It can be hard to tell. The easiest way to notice is by making the screen a single color. To easily do so, use the Dead Pixels Test which we included in new Bad Crystal
Of course, a speck on your screen may in fact be a piece of dirt or dust - run your finger over it (gently!) to make sure. if it doesnít move, thatís a stuck (or dead) pixel.

So youíve got a stuck pixel - what now?

Yes, this is a hardware problem - so how will software fix it?
There are software programs that rapidly change colors, cycling through a variety of colors on your screen. If a color-cycling window is placed in the area of the stuck pixel, the program is constantly asking the stuck pixel to change colors.

It did not work, what do now?
Most likely you will either hit the 10% or pixel, that you're trying to fix is ??dead =(
Some people report that pressing and rubbing on the pixel can help reset it. If youíre pressing and rubbing, try using something that wonít damage your screen, like a microfiber cloth - and donít press too hard! Some people also report that tapping on the screen with a blunt, narrow object like an eraser nub or the cap of a sharpie (it may be a good idea to wrap it in something like a microfiber cloth, too) can help. Again, be careful - donít apply too much pressure or use anything sharp; you could easily damage your monitor and end up wishing your only problem was a stuck pixel.

Warranty Considerations
Unfortunately, a single faulty pixel may not be enough to get service under warranty - even if youíve just recently purchased your computer. Different manufacturers have different policies for dealing with stuck or dead pixels. Some manufacturers will replace a monitor that has even a single faulty pixel, while most manufacturers will require a minimum number of faulty pixels before offering warranty service.
You may need to have at least five stuck pixels on your screen before your manufacturer will replace it under warranty. For more details, consult the warranty information that came with your laptop or computer monitor or contact the manufacturer.
