    I've got a real strange problem.

    When I play games or use the menu screen I have no dead pixels at all and the picture is perfect.

    But on movie playback (e.g. the demo disk) I get small areas of dead pixels.

    I really can't understand this and I can only think of a few reasons:

    1. Dead pixels only show in movies? (surely that can't be true?)
    2. There are scracthes on the movie disc? (I also have T2 as a UMD movie and have the same problems in exactly the same area - so I also don't reckon it's that)
    3. I have a software problem with movie feedback

    Can anyone help me in terms of what's up and what I can do about it?

    Well I notice a similar thing last night, was watching the Bourne Identify (ripped from DVD and in AVC format) and there was a dead pixel on the R/H side of the screen. Most noticable when the background was dark. Not really noticed the dead pixle when playing Lumines/RR etc. I put this down to the fact that the movie was darker than the games?

    However have also watched Spiderman 2, Hellboy and HOFD on UMD and none of them seemed to show dead pixels.

    That makes me think it's a software issue. Perhaps when (or if) I upgrade the firmware I'll be OK.

    Now I think about it mine may be a stuck pixel, as its bright rather than dark. May be that software would work to remove the stuck pixel.

    Cheers

    I'll try that.

    PS that site seems to have absolutely everything you'd need for PSP. Cheers
