Is This Pixel a Lost Cause?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I know there's ways to try to revive a stuck/dead pixel, and I've tried some, but before I invest a lot of time into it, I want to see if I am right that it's a lost cause.

Here's a picture of it.



This pixel is...

1. Black (off) on a Red Background
2. Green on a Green background
3. Blue on a Blue background
4. Green on a Yellow background
5. Cyan on a White background
6. Black (off) on a Black background

...and from my understanding of how the colors are formed from the three triads (Red, Green, and Blue), this indicates the Red sub pixel is clearly always off and not working, yes?

If so, is this the same as a stuck pixel, or a dead pixel? Most of what I found on dead pixels has references to the whole pixel always being off, but if one of the sub pixels is always off, is it possible to revive, or should I not waste any more time?

Luckily, it's just the one, and it's relatively to the upper left, so it's not the biggest bother I suppose.

I've used this guide before. It didn't work for me but it's worth a shot.

Well, that's the thing. I was hoping someone with deeper knowledge of LCDs would inform me if those symptoms do point to a dead sub-pixel, and if it was a lost cause, before I spent much time trying to fix it.

I've already poked it, applied pressure, and used software, etc., just not extensively.
