    Ok so dad bought a cheapish LCD for downstairs, so i was watching a dvd and it changed seen then rite at the bottom of the screen i noticed a bright red dot, so I skipped a seen. Still there, changed back to the TV tuner still there. I've never had an LCD before i but I've herd about dead pixels and i suspect that could be it, please shed some light on the subject.

    What you have is an open red pixel.
    Unfortunately it is unlikely that a retailer will swap it out for another as manufacturers have tolerance levels based on numbers and positions of pixels.
    If the retailer has a refund policy, JL, argos etc then you may be in luck, then again 1 open pixel may not be too bad anyway.

    This is one of the problems with LCD. The answer to your question is probably not, there are programs you can run on a pc that can sometimes unstick stuck pixels, I don't know where to download them from though, maybe someone else knows.
