    Hi,

    I have just noticed that one of my pixels is not right :eek: , how can you tell if it's stuck or dead, it seems to be spilt in half, with red one side and blue the other, it's at the bottom of the screen, so it's not a problem.

    Any info would be great

    cheers

    Lofty :thumbsup:

    I have the same, comes and goes, the green middle is missing, it is really hard to notice, near the edge and unless I am cleaning it and have a good look, I can't see it.

    Yeah, that's it, not a problem though, but I have heard of the pixel fixer which apparantly fixes stuck pixels, but I can only find it in mpeg4 format which is meant for the sony psp, but it has a 60% success rate. I have it downloaded to my pc, so when I get it connected to my plasma, I will give it a whirl.

    It works by playing red,green, and blue solid squares VERY quickly, and it supposedly kicks the stuck pixel into life.
