    I have just taken delivery of my new Sharp LCD LC26GA4E and have been told I should now look for dead pixels in case I have to return it within 7 days.

    Is there some sort of test I can run or dvd or technique that you guys reccommend for finding the pixels.

    On a cursory inspection alst night, there were no evident pixels, but
    I gather they are much easier to see against certain backgrounds.

    Any tips?

    A simple test, which will reveal the most visible dead pixels (namely, those that have failed bright - as opposed to failed dark) is to look at a plain black screen. (Pause a DVD during a dark fade or similar). If there are any bright pinpricks then these are failed bright pixels.

    In normal use failed dark pixels are all but undetectable. Finding them (and maybe the best counsel is NOT to go looking) is a touch harder as it involves looking closely at each of a plain red, plain blue, and plain green, image.
