Is it possible to have a dead subpixel?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So what I originally thought was a stuck pixel is actually a dead subpixel.

I grabbed my telephoto lens and took a picture. After zooming in 10x I noticed that the purple pixel is actually a result of only the red and blue pixel lighting up. The green subpixel is completely unlit.

Is this even possible? Or do I still have a stuck pixel? (which I have not had any success repairing)

dead pixels are common. is it green?
EDIT: just re-read your post, i see you say it has green in it. Then thats definitely a dead pixxy :/

Are green subpixels the most likely to go out..?

I wasnt aware that green was more common,I also doubt it is tongue.gif but anyway yeah that's a stuck pixel mate frown.gif the difference between a dead pixel and a stuck pixel is that the transistor is broken in a stuck pixel making it stuck on an "on" position making its digital value "1" 100% of the time
