Dead pixel or?..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a led tv im using as monitor (lm6700) today i was reading something and was really close to the tv and noticed something like a dead pixel or small dirt in the tv after making sure it wasnt dirt and cleaning the area figured the tv had a dead pixel, is not noticeable from a distance but if you are close to the tv you can see this grey/dark small spot, took a pic with a nokia 808 in macro mode zoomed in from like 15cm away of the tv using a white background, could anyone that know about led tvs take a look and tell me what is it?

Looks to me like a giant white yeti mooning you during a snowstorm.

if it is a dead pixel you can try pixel healing software, which basically runs through the colors really fast to try to jolt the pixel back to life. It occasionally even works.

Looks more like a piece of dust between the backlight and LCD layer in the panel. A dead pixel will be exactly one pixel across, not an amoeba shaped blob that's approximately the size of a pixel. =)

Generally speaking, panel manufacturers take more care in making "monitors" than "TVs" because they know you're going to be sitting 18" away from a monitor, and 6 feet or more from a TV. You wouldn't see that microscopic dust bunny if you were using that TV as it was intended to be used ... as a TV.
