Default How do I KILL some pixels on an LCD?

My friend got one on NewEgg, it has 6 dead pixels and we need to return it, but NewEgg says 8 or more dead pixels.

Any ideas?

a pen and a cloth (so you don't nick the screen) push the pen into the cloth, into the screen and press hard. circle it around if needed... if a two year old can do it with a blue crayon, you can do it the right way! LOL

Should be. It's kind of a hit or miss thing. Some pixels can go through a really hard beating, while others don't take much at all to go dead. No way of telling when they'll go.

ummm yes... sometimes it's that easy... I have several ded ones, due to a rambuxious (sp) 2 year old... love her to death, but wanted to throttle her... LMAO but like it was said... sometimes it hit or miss... you can also do the same to a dead one and sometimes "revive" it...

A much easier way to make dead pixels is to make the screen flash different colors very fast for a long time (8 or more hours). There are some videos of this, just search google.

BTW when I say fast I mean like every 25ms.

Cool, thanks for the info guys. We're gunna try to "revive" the dead pixels, if that doesn't work then we're gunna do the flashy color thing . And if that doesn't work we'll start poking it.
