    I have had my projector about 3 weeks and its devolped a dead pixel it wasnt their when I first had it is their anything I can do?
    Its an Epson tw-10H im guesing that with only one pixel I cant do anything about it, but its a little annoying because I know its their I keep looking for it. Im a newbie so any advice would be great.

    What colour is it?

    I had 2 red ones appear and (seeing as many films are generally on the dark side) a bright pixel really stands out.

    I took a yellow post-it note, coloured it black using a marker pen and cut out a pixel sized square and stuck in onto my screen over the stuck lit pixel.

    Now it's nowhere near as bad.

    Medium/dark scenes you'd never notice it at all.

    It's only in very bright scenes with no detail that you can see a small black dot, but it's way way better that a bright dot.

    Also as it's a post-it note sticky, it will come off the screen real easy without a mark.
