    I have a 43" Sony Bravia and I seem to have a really dark couple of pixels which are together on the screen.

    Any tips on getting rid of them?

    Thanks

    I have the same problem, 95% of the time I can't see them (approx 2 side by side). I first noticed this issue in the summer and thought they were dead thunder flies but now I am not so sure. My Sony TV is fab in all other respects ...

    You can try giving the screen a little tap, but realistically the only fix is a new panel, so essentially a new TV. It's normally the driver transistor that has failed, so the pixel won't clear. Very occasionally it is the joint, so the tap can clear it, but I've only had very limited success with this over the years.
