Probably a stupid question, but just to clarify........... If you are displaying a BLACK screen from your LCD machine and one dot is bright RED, then that means the RED panel is the one that's at fault yes? I was wondering about creating an animated .gif file (black with a fast flashing red dot) to (as it were) exersise this pixel back to life. Ok, a long shot I know, but I also know it CAN work (sometimes) So I'm wondering, as I have a stuck RED pixel, to "TRY" and exersize this pixel I'd need to create a black image with a fast red flashing square over this glowing red dot's position. Have I got it right?
