    Hi,

    I just got a new LG C8 65in.

    I ran a pixel test and noticed a single white pixel on the red screen. I also noticed one more on a blue screen (different sub pixel). Is this normal or is it worth it to exchange the TV? I ran the pixel refresh which didn't do anything. Now I'm running one of those repair videos on youtube to see what it does.

    If this is a rare issue then I will definitely go exchange it but if the probably of this issue is pretty high, then I may get one that is the same or worse when I exchange.

    Thoughts?

    Can you see the issue from your normal viewing position when watching content ?.

    I think it’s normal to have 1-3 separate stuck or dead pixels.
    When I’ve looked closely I’ve seen at least one in every OLED I’ve had
    Thankfully you won’t be able to see from viewing distance

    That is correct, I can't see it from a normal viewing distance or angle. Anything else I should check with this particular TV? A pixel test is all I've run so far.

    If you can't see it from your normal viewing position it's a complete non issue then.

    Absolutely nothing to worry about ... end of.
