Fixing a Stuck Pixel

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have had this stuck pixel on my Asus VH238H monitor for a few months. I thought it would go away but it still hasn't. Are there any safe ways of removing these things? I believe I tried using some screen fix thing I got off the internet that flashes the screen with different colors but it didn't work.

Do you guys have any viable solutions for these types of things?

blah.
Uhm use a micro-fiber cloth and with the tip of a finger (under the cloth) try and massage around the pixel. It'll take a bit of pressure, but it will help "un-stick" it

be cautious; massaging dead/stuck pixels could cause more pixels to become dead/stuck.
