"White" dot pixel

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have had my monitor for little over a year now and have never had a dead pixel or any other problems. When I first bought it I looked for pixel related issues diligently and have pretty much kept up that practice. Today while watching a movie I noticed a white dot, thinking it was just a piece of fuzz I used my fiber cloth and tried to wipe it away but to no avail. So I used a little deionized water but still it didn't go away, I then knew it was what I had been fearing; The thing is I thought once you bought the monitor and a few months without incidence passes, you where good to go. Apparently pixels let go at anytime. I looked at Samsung's policy and see that I am basically screwed.

So now obviously I either have to live with it (not going to happen) or I have to get a new monitor. So I am wondering if any company out there has a zero dead pixel policy? Or if there is someway I can actually get the thing repaired? I am pretty PO'ed and sad right now, this monitor has been a champ and now all of a sudden a random pixel just lets go for no apparent reason.

Thanks.

Its one pixel, why is one pixel such a big deal? I could understand if you had a bunch of dead pixels. Maybe I just dont care as much, but one pixel doesnt effect me that much.

To answer your question, unless you get a warranty for the monitor that specifically states they have a zero dead pixel policy for the entire warranty you will need to live with pixels dying every now and then. Most companies dont insure dead pixels after a certain time period because eventually monitors get them.

I'm not gonna offer suggestions for what you should do, but if you do decide to get a second monitor, keep the old one with the white pixel as a secondary. Dual screens or bust.

sometimes you can be very lucky and use a dead pixel flashing image to fix it , its only ever worked for me once, some say apply pressure to the dead pixel to try and restart it, if they dont fit it, best thing to do is to forget about it.
