    I've been playing a new pool game on my ps2 and the lovely pink baize of the table highlighted a stuck pixel just left of centre (very noticeable) and one down to the bottom right (not so bad). After running avia test patterns i find i have 2 stuck and 1 flickering pixel. These can be seen from my normal ps2 playing distance of 8-9ft.

    I have had the plasma for 7 months so the warranty is still ok.

    So... What whould you do? would you say this is unacceptable? is 3 quite normal? would you take it up with the supplier or the manufacturer?

    any views are appreciated. :lease:

    Have a chat with your dealer, but they are likely to be unsympathetic after 7 months...normally only > 5 pixels would count as worthy of investiagation...

    Worth a try though...

    if you have taken 7 months to notice. i would have a word with your dealer and see what he says.

    easy for me to say but try not to get hung up on it, its not the end of the world , my mate has 3 stuck red pixels, i never noticed till he pointed them out.

    I suspect you will get short thrift from your dealer and manufacturer.
    The fact that there are only 3 duff pixels and it has taken 7 months for you to notice will not be in your favour.
    I believe there is an acceptable amount of duff pixels for any plasma/LCD display, below which it can be considered as merchantable quality.
    Not sure what it is for each specific manufacturer though.
