You can also give a try to the "Unstuck pixels" programs, the ones that flash all the colours on your screen and leave it overnight or whatever the program says.
Agree with what he said. The seller is what makes the policy for dead/stuck pixels which usually correlates with the manufacturers pixel policy. Honestly if the amount you stated are correct regardless of viewing distance, I would take the replacement. You seem to have gotten a bad one and the nxt one sent would be in your odds to recieve a better or no dead pixel. As he also stated try some various stuck pixel stricks. I know I posted some a few posts/pages ago with links. Try that if not contact the seller. Make sure to take pictures of the dead/stuck pixels and show them to the seller.

Anyway, my Crossover 27Q is starting to have flickering issues after 3-4 months, most likely tied to the crappy blue LED driver board. Now, I'm trying to line up a replacement board with my seller - greensum. He sent me photos of a possible replacement board, VLD0100
, I hadn't seen anything on this model anywhere except for some Russian / Korean sites on Google and it isn't exactly the zyglobal-brand green board that AW seems to be sending nor the fif22ld-04a that is some other replacement used. Anybody have any experience with this board? Or know if a swap like this won't cause a catastrophe? I suppose the most basic question would then be: does anyone have any method of getting a compatible replacement board?
Here's what the seller sent me pics of:
And.. I think this the sameish board (taken from a google search)
Sorry for all of the image spam.
The first green PCB boared with only 1 mosfet is problematic just like the blue and teals. Since all 3 have the issue with heat dissipation and then eventually burn out. Now saying anything new won'thave the ability to burn out to. All hardware eventually just goes one 1 or the other. But..... That has 2 mosfets. You want that or the 3rd revision which is what your talking about. The one that Aw also replaces. You can request from greensum to have that revision "if" he can get it, if not just take that.Edited by Cloudz00x - 11/15/12 at 5:52am
