I cant actually see mine from my viewing distance unless the screen goes completely grey, ie when no av signal is being received. I noticed after turning off my DVD player last night, the screen went grey and i noticed this tiny dot in the bottom left corner.
I'm not sure is its dead or stuck. At first i thought it was always black, which i assume means its died. However this morning i noticed that when the red sofa on GMTV was on screen in that area, i could not see the dot anymore. Could this mean its actually stuck red?? And if so, do they ever unstick themselves?
Thanks for all the help and advice.
Just curious as to how many LCD owners have any stuck/dead pixels?
I have today taken delivery of a 37" WLT58 and just noticed that there is one black pixel in the bottom left corner. Aaarrrrh!
How many other owners have any dead 'uns?

Sometimes dont you just feel its not meant to be.
I've already got through a Panny PV500 plasma!
I must be pressing the wrong buttons
njp said:I'm sorry but that is an absurd statement. You are saying that the probability of manufacturing an error-free LCD panel is zero, which is simply untrue.
They would be a lot less full now than they would have been a few years ago. Yields have improved dramatically, even though panel sizes have been increasing. My objection was to your categoric statement that "all LCD panels have faults". It isn't true. It was never true.karlak said:You are correct, it would be possible to make LCD's without a single dead pixel - But at what cost? If every panel made that had a single dead pixel was binned, then their would be a lot of full bins.
njp said:I see. So your final position on this is that no error-free LCD panel has ever been made?
I'm glad we've cleared that up.

I haven't misquoted you. I summarised your position (accurately) as stating that no defect-free panel had ever been made. I am perfectly well aware of how many pixels and sub-pixels make up a HD LCD panel. Your 'argument from personal incredulity' that it is impossible to manufacture such a device without defects carries no weight with me. It's just plain wrong, as any supplier of class 1 LCD displays (as defined by ISO 13406-2) will be happy to confirm.Jakus said:Njp
this is what I said "All LCD panels will have Pixel errors, most of which the untrained eye will never see"
and Yes I stand by it, You are taking it to mean You will never see a Panel without a Black.Green.red or Blue spot, that does not encompass all errors !
the average Panel has millions of pixels and each has 3 subpixels R,G,B
Go work it out How many Little subpixels will have to be working 100%.
