    Hi All,

    It's been a long time since posting here but I was wondering if anyone has advice regarding dead pixels.

    I've just noticed two dead pixels next to eachother on my LCD. :(

    It's a Sharp LM3700 and I've only had it about 8 months. Is this the start of the screen going down the pan?

    Anyone know why this happens? Can it be fixed?

    Have these dead pixels only just appeared? If so they may not be perminant. Try "massaging" them back to life with a cloth so not to leave marks on the panel. Dont be too rough with it, just enough to get the fluid flowing (oooh errhh, sounds a bit rude).
    May sound daft but worth a go.

    Thanks guys, I'll have a go at the massage (you're not kidding right? :) ) and hope it doesn't get any worse.

    no he's not kidding, did it to my monitor screen when a pixel stuck worked a treat. Just places a cloth over your finger end and gently massage the area.
