    Default How to Find & Fix a Stuck Pixel on an LCD / LED Monitor

    Hi guys, I think this post will be very helpful if you want to find dead pixels on your monitor and want to fix it instead of dealing with hassles to return it to the seller again Here is a very useful software that helps you find dead pixels:

    Dead Pixel Buddy 1.1 (Freeware) : http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...el-Buddy.shtml



    If your LCD / LED screen has a point on the screen that is "stuck" (either it's always bright or always dark), it is potentially possible to fix it on your own. Here's how to do it:

    Pressure Method


    • Turn on the computer and LCD screen.





    • Display a black image, which will show the stuck pixel very clearly against the background. It is very important that you are showing a black image and not just a blank signal, as you need the backlighting of the LCD / LED to be illuminating the back of the panel.





    • Find a narrow object with a blunt, narrow end. A Sharpie marker with the cap on, an extremely dull pencil, a plastic stylus, or the end of a makeup brush would all work for this.






    • Use the rounded end of the object to gently tap the stuck pixel. Don't tap hard to start with, just enough to see a quick white glow under the point of contact. If you didn't see a white glow, then you didn't tap hard enough, so use just slightly more pressure this time.





    • Tap harder. Increase the pressure on the taps gradually for 5-10 taps until the pixel rights itself.






    • Apply pressure instead. If your tapping hasn't yielded any results, grab a damp (not wet) washcloth or paper towel. Fold the fabric so that you don't accidentally tear it, and hold it over the stuck pixel, and apply gentle but consistent pressure with the same object you used for tapping.



      • Try to apply pressure only to the stuck pixel and not the surrounding area.

    • Check your results. Display a white image (such as an empty text document, or sending your browser to about:blank and going to full screen with F11) to verify that you haven't accidentally caused more damage than you fixed. If you fixed the stuck pixel, your whole screen should be white. Or use Dead Pixel Buddy 1.1 (Link given above).








    Heat Method


    • Turn on the computer and the LCD / LED screen.





    • Dampen a washcloth with water that's as hot as possible. If you can, heat water on the stove or microwave until it's just beginning to show air bubbles at the bottom of the container. Put the washcloth in a colander, and dump the hot water over the washcloth.





    • Put on gloves, or cover your hands with oven mitts. You don't want to burn your fingers in the next steps.





    • Put the hot washcloth in a plastic sandwich bag. Make sure the seal is completely closed.





    • Hold the plastic bag with the hot washcloth up against the stuck pixel. Hold the plastic bag up to the screen such that the area you're using doesn't have a seam on it. As much as you can, try to only focus the heat on the stuck pixel.






    • "Massage" the pixel in slow circles. Move the bag around the pixel a bit in a massage-like motion. The heat generated will cause the liquid crystal to flow more easily into the areas that were not formerly filled.








    Software Method


    • Try running pixel-fixing software. Stuck pixels can often be re-energized by rapidly turning them on and off. There are screensavers available for download that will do this to your LCD / LED screen.



    Hardware Method


    • Try a solid state solution like PixelTuneup (http://www.pixeltuneup.com/). These devices produce specially tuned video signals that eliminate stuck pixels while enhancing picture quality, color, and contrast. Also works on televisions, including LCD, LED, plasma, or CRT.
    • Turn off the monitor.
    • Plug in and turn on PixelTuneup, then turn on the monitor.
    • Wait 20 minutes.
    • Turn off and unplug PixelTuneup.
    • Stuck pixels and other IR will be gone, and color/contrast will be improved.
