I've discovered a single black dead pixel on my 37" PV500 (had it a week) in the upper middle region towards the edge. The fault can be seen from 2.5m when viewing bright images such as still photographs or bright movie scenes. It bugs me!

What would you do? Get an exchange or live with it? Could it be classed as a fault under the Sale of Goods Act? Personally as it REALLY bugs me I'm requesting an exchange but I expect the retailer to be reluctant and try to fob me off.

strange, the day before the set was due to be exchanged the dead pixel disappeared! It's perfectly normal now... anyone know what causes this?

It wasnt dead it was 'stuck'.

It may happen again.

no, it cant have been stuck as this would be red, green or blue? it was a green pixel that seemed dead (showing black).
