possible dead pixel, please look

Q: possible dead pixel, please look

I have a dot on my monitor that I am trying to get diagnosed. You cannot see it when the monitor is bright and colored, but black screen it looks to me like a bubble, almost clear looking. It may be a bad pixel, and the dot doesnt bother me a ton but my curiosity is getting to me. I do have pictures of it, although they are not very good but maybe someone here can recognize what it is for sure.

I tried that flashing software that may fix stuck pixels, i did that for almost 3 hours but it is still there. I also posted on another forum but they just said if it bothers me than return it. Assuming I don't want to return it, please look at the bad pictures and let me know what you think.

Is your monitor LCD or LED?
I think you have run-of-the-mill dead or stuck pixels. Usually is a monitor problem, I heard some Government thing called the "Dead Pixel Policy" but it only applies to brand new monitors or monitors that are still under warranty with dead pixels. There are some sites that host software/programs to diagnose dead pixels by putting different colored slides on the screen, like this program here:
InjuredPixels 2.1 Download - Freeware Files.com - Utilities Category

There are also programs to attempt the fix of stuck pixels. If it's new monitor or still under warranty with dead pixels than you will get a new replacement thanks to the Dead Pixel Policy.

Hello Peeps,    I just received T520 package today and my excitement suddenly turned to grief when I saw a bright glowing red dot on my screen. OMG... a dead pixel right out of the box! Did I just drop my hard earned grand that I have been saving for months on something that would bug me for the rest of the products life?    I quickly searched Lenovo's dead pixel policy and almost fainted when I found out the unit has to have at least 3 dead pixels to be considered for replacement noooooooo...wahhhh....boohohoho..sob       Why did they ship out a unit with dead pixel??? I'm pretty sure it was NOT missed by QA because it glows like a laser beam in the dark and a dead pixel would not develop while in transit!           I'm going to contact Lenovo post sales tomorrow and really hoping something can be done. I know some of you will consider this as another guy who got a dead pixel rant, but man, when someone spend this amount of cash, and I'm not rich, I would at least expect to receive a non-defective product. Oh Lordy, I should have trusted my instinct and buy something of this value in a brick and mortar store. Hoping for the best but this night would not be a pleasant one. Sigh,Jason

Presume dead pixels.The machine is still in warranty and I logged a ticket with support for screen replacement.For over 1 month I'm trying to get a clear answer from Lenovo engineers why the warranty has been refused based on "Customer Induced Damage" of a (explanation received in writing from Lenovo) " Screen damaged by touching". If I'm correct, a touch screen is designed to be operated by touching, otherwise what is the purpose. Can anybody can help me on this issue? Why Lenovo is refusing to honour the warranty on touch screens? All the assessment has been made on photos and ignore the fact has been mentioned that white lines are only when screen is power on and no scratches, dents or other damages. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello. I'm just trying to get a definitive answer to my problem. I have a black spot on my taskbar and from my search here on SF and Googling, the difference between a stuck pixel and a dead one is that a stuck pixel will be white or a colour while a dead pixel will be black. This leads me to my conclusion that what I have is a dead pixel (my warranty ran out about 2 weeks ago so the timing seems right).

The majority of opinions is that there is no fix for a dead pixel. When I Google, however, there are 2 or 3 hits that claim there is a fix. Frankly, I am doubtful about these claims, but I would like to get the opinion of some of the people here at SF as I trust the knowledge of the people here the most.

So, to sum up, am I correct about the dead pixel and is there a fix?

Thank You, David

A:How Can You Mend A Dead Pixel's Heart?

On an LCD/LED/TFT screen, each pixel (or, rather, group of 3 sub-pixels since each pixel is actually comprised of a red, green, and blue element) is controlled by a transistor array. If we think of these transistors as switches, when they are open the appropriate sub-pixel is turned off and no light is admitted through. Conversely, when they are closed, the appropriate sub-pixel is turned on and light is allowed through, the colour of which is determined by the sub-pixel.

We use the terms dead pixel to refer to a pixel that is completely dead and shows no colour whatsoever, whereas a stuck pixel means that at least 1 of the 3 sub-pixels in that pixel group is permanently turned on (the others may, or may not, operate as normal). In both cases, the root cause is the same, this being a dead transistor or transistors (they can fail either open or short circuit).

Unfortunately, it is not generally possible to reactivate these transistors, once dead they stay dead. Some people say that by gently rubbing in the area of the dead/stuck pixel, it is possible to bring it back to life, whereas others maintain that by rapidly cycling the pixels surrounding the problematic one it is also possible to revive it. This may or may not work, and there is no guarantee either way.

But they just called me and told me the repair is not covered by the warranty because they determined that the damage was made by the customer (CID). The cost of repair is more than $300. My x1 has a 3-year limited warranty. Here, I wanna ask for the community or anyone that may meet a similar situation before. How did they believe that the damage is made by me but not a problem of their own product? I am a Thinkpad lover of more than 10 years and it is the first time they refuse to fix a screen and said it is my problem.  Thanks all. I attached the pic of the dead pixel here for your reference.

A:A dead pixel is not included in the warranty?

Often, a dead pixel is considered "normal", but the decision is subjective, based on how noticeable it is.  You can get a 2nd opinion.  For subjective screen issues (dead or  hot pixels, too dim, etc.), I always carry the machine into a repair facility, preferably a Premier Dealer, who does warranty work.  I say that I only want to do the repair if it is covered.  I ask them to look at it with me, so we are looking at the same thing.  If the dealer decides it isn't covered, he doesn't get paid.  At the depot, if the guy decides it is covered, it simply means more work for him.

Hello all, A few days ago I received a brand new HP Envy that I purchased directly from HP. I have discovered that it has what appears to be one dead pixel in the monitor. I say "what appears to be" because upon very close inspection it looks like maybe an adjacent pixel is not as bright as it should be. Or perhaps this is just a trick of the light, the "deadness" of the one dead pixel creeping over and influencing how the adjacent pixel is perceived? If I had to bet my life on it I'd say it is just a single dead pixel... but the point is that it may be two. Apparently this is important because if two pixels next to each other are defective, then my warranty would allow me to exchange the computer for a new one (correct?), whereas if it's just a single dead pixel then the warranty wouldn't cover it. BUT is it also possible that I could return it anyway, since it's a brand new computer that arrived with the defect? I have looked online and in some places the internet pundits make it seem as if HP will allow returns for whatever reason as long as they are initiated within 21 days. All of that being said, if anyone can tell me what my options are, I would very much appreciate it. I enjoy the computer very much so far, but this dead pixel(s) thing does bug me slightly.

On my 3 year old laptop (HP dvEnvy7), a very thin line of black pixels has showed up. The first time it showed up was on the red background login screen, and I think tapping the monitor made it go away, but that might've been coincidence. I just noticed it again in the same place where the color of the screen is green. I was running an MBAM scan while that showed up and the line went away, again I don't know whether that was coincidence. I've read that this problem could be caused "by the traces going bad in the video cable going from the LCD the the main board" due to the laptop lid opening and closing. The lid is getting a bit loose. Is this the answer or could there be something more malicious, as my paranoia comes back to haunt me?

A:Thin black/dead vertical pixel line

If it's a single pixel width from edge to edge, it will almost certainly be a fault inside the LCD panel itself. Individual pixel drive signals are not carried on the LVDS cable connecting the panel to the mainboard, as that would require thousands of individual conductors. So a "hard fault" such as a complete black column or line is usually due to a bad connection in a heat bonded loom inside the panel, or an intermittent line or column driver IC which are also integrated into the bonded loom matrix inside the panel. Pressing or tapping the screen/frame can commonly make the symptom come and go in its early phases.
 
With that said, odd line-like faults can be a result of poor contact on the LVDS cable connector(s), and dismantling enough to gain access to this and cleaning the contacts with alcohol can solve it.

Hello, So I started using my new Yoga 920, and so far I'm very happy with it, it's a blast quality-wise. But starting to do graphic work on it, I noticed a weird black spot which does look like a dead pixel, but moving my head around makes it move "above" the screen. For example if I put the cursor tip on it, if I move my head to the right the black spot appears more on the left of the cursor. It looks like something is inside the screen, or the glass has a small defect on that particular spot. Do you know how to adress thsis issue, or if I can send it for repairs ? Doing mostly graphic work on my laptop it could become bothersome quite fast. Also, I am located in France, if that changes anything.

You cannot fix it?
In such case the display need to be replaced.
But I assume the warranty is not valid anymore, therefore you would need to pay for the replacement.

I usually buy everything from Newegg, except LCD monitors. They don't accept returns unless the monitor has 8 dead pixels. I'm going to pay $200 for a new monitor w/seven dead pixels?

This is strange. I should have taken a screenshot or something but the problem is pretty easy to picture. Although I only say 'dead' pixel in the title because that is more commonly known than the name 'stuck pixel' which is more accurate to what I saw.
 
I was in the middle of typing in a forum and suddenly noticed a tiny red dot, a pixel sized dot, sitting just right of center on my computer screen. My initial reaction was as to be expected. I thought: "Well oh damn, my laptop monitor is about to start dying bit by bit. Best put some seizure-inducing colors on my screen to temporarily fix the issue."
 
Of course, I panicked a bit when it didn't work.
 
Out of frustration I hovered my mouse under the spot... except it wasn't under it. Whatever is there is under my mouse but over everything else. That simply cannot be a stuck pixel. I brought up the task manager, wondering if there would be anything I could get out of it, but I hardly have a good memory of what programs run on my system, so I was just lost there. Also the task manager layered over it as well.
 
I have run various virus/malware scans since then and come up with nothing. Googling stuff like "background program causing red pixel" gives me nothing but tutorials for lost/dead pixels. I'm pretty much lost here. Ultimately though, it went away when I restarted and I haven't seen it again.
 
However that still leaves me unsettled that I have no clue what that was. Does anyone here know what I... Read more

After playing around with different lighting / light exposure, I found out that this spot is  there even when the laptop is turned off.Laptop on, white background: super ugly black spotLaptop off, shade: not visibleLaptop on, sunlight: visible in a colour that can be best described as some shiny glass colour.I attached some pictures. They are all showing this same spot, with different light exposure.Gentle wiping/rubbing didn't help at all.It is right in the center of the screen, and super disturbing. It destroys the whole experience of this basically beautiful Yoga.Thanks for sharing ideas!

I'm using a Lenovo laptop with integrated intel graphics, I'm also using an Acer B223W attached as an external display. There is an issue with the monitor where there is a four inch black bar running down the right side. Basically the display is shifted four inches to the left, leaving me with four inches of unusable monitor real estate on the right. I've trouble shot it, to no avail and the monitor's display settings only allow me to shift the monitor's display an inch or so. I need something like catalyst control center that will allow me to shift the monitor's picture as much as I'd like. Any ideas?

TL;DR

I need a piece of software that will allow me to shift my monitor's display pixel by pixel. I have integrated intel graphics.

hi guys i just want to know what is pixel shader and can we increase pixel shader virtually

A:hat is pixel shader and can we increase pixel shader virtually

Pixel shading is what makes computer graphics seem so real. It works on a pixel by pixel basis, determining the lighting, shading, and color of each pixel - bringing infinite possibilities.

If I'm correct, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, etc will affect pixel shading. For ATI, this can be done through Catalyst. NVidia settings should do the same.

Not sure what you mean by virtually...

I have a logitech mouse that has a smooth scrolling wheel no ratcheting. I wonder if it was possible to set up scrolling to scroll pixel by pixel rather than line by line. Anyone know?
 

A:scrolling pixel by pixel rather than line by line?

I don't know if it can be done or not, but I am certainly curious as to why one would want to do this?

I'm In a dilemma with An Emachines T2792 I received the pc from a friend whom knows I work on PC's on the side when I plugged it in I found it to be stuck turned on
The green indicator light was lit like it was turned on, but no signal was stated on the monitor,, then after trying unsuccessfully to press and Depress many times did nothing
so I unplugged and replugged in the same, so I unplugged again, and messed with button some more then replugged in , nothing no green indicator light then i noticed a soft whistling and clicking sounds from power supply, so I got another brand new power supply {correct power supply} when I plugged tower in it lit the green indicator light on tower then softly went out
I tried pressing in power button nothing no response.
Now my question is I am pretty sure I need to buy another power supply now
But I need some ideas on what to replace to get the pc up and running again??
would it be the switch???
or the motherboard????
 

A:2 Dead Power Supplies need to Ressurect Dead Emachine T2792 Help

I had a similar problem with an emachines T2825. When I plugged it in, it automatically came on, and wouldn't turn off unless I unplugged it. It wouldn't POST or anything. After testing everything, I found out that the motherboard was bad. So that would be my guess, is that it could possibly have a bad motherboard.
