Default fixing dead pixels with a .gif file....

Does anybody know if this site really works, at fixing dead pixels? My brother has a light blue dead pixel on his LCD. And it's kinda in the middle.

Hello,

Success is not guaranteed. You could give it a try though.

It works for stuck pixels. Dead pixels can't be fixed.

yeah, technically dead pixels are black. Stuck pixel is the correct term.

i call them "lazy pixels", yeah it can fix "lazy" or "stuck" pixels. the key word being can. it is probably only a temporary fix anyway and the pixel will eventually revert.

in my experiance, massaging the pixel isnt a permanent fix, it comes back after a while
If the monitor is still under warrenty, see if you can get it replaced

Most have a policy where they will only take back monitors with at least # dead pixels.
