Monitor generates a red pixel after some time

Q: Monitor generates a red pixel after some time

Hey! I have a strange issue, I couldn't find anything like this. So I bought a Samsung S24D300 a few weeks ago. It works well, didn't have any pixel problems etc. But yesterday I noticed that after some time (let's say around 1 hour after turning it on), it generates a single red stuck pixel, which is only visible on black background. But, after I turn it off for 10 minutes, it disappears. And as I see, it becomes brighter and brighter, still not that big deal (at least I will turn it off more often), but it annoys me, as my previous B300 also had a blue stuck pixel, and I cannot return it now. What can cause this? I will try running JScreenFix and other softwares after it appears, however it does not disappear if I massage it gently. Has anybody had any problems like this? Thank you.

EDIT: now I didn't have the problem for hours, then I started Skyrim, and the red pixel appeared immediately.

Preferred Solution: Monitor generates a red pixel after some time

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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?

Is there any possible way images viewed on an LCD monitor can be 'stored' in the pixels and then recovered?

I returned a monitor that I had been using for a few days because it had stuck pixels. This is more of a security concern but I thought it would fit in the hardware section.

Thanks for the help!

A:Monitor pixel 'memory'?

You are fine..nothing to worry about..A pixel doesn't store anything.
pixel memory refers to a color or image being viewed a long time..and then the pixels may not perform 100 percent true for a short time after the prolonged image or color is not longer being viewed..
An example is a web page with a bright dark color...when you go to another page after ...the page is a bit funny for a short spell

Hi. I own a 17" LCD Monitor and I have been noting during the past few months that it appears that one pixel in the center of the screen is either missing, broken, or malfunctioning part of the time. I believe it isn't there because when the screen is black, this one tiny pixel stays white which is in the middle of the screen. Its like it does not work. Are there any ways of repairing this without having to pay tons of money? Any other advice about this topic will be greatly appreciated.

I am using 2 27' LED displays on my PC. One has RGB sub pixel, the other has BGR sub pixel.

I have problem to tune the font using Cleartype. I have tried to tune all displays a few times and always get the following result.
If I use the RGB one as the primary display, the font on the RGB display looks ok but the font on the BGR display looks weird after tuning using cleartype.

If I use the BGR display as the primary, the font on the BGR display looks ok but the font on the RGB display looks weird after tuning using cleartype.
Basicly, the after tuning with Cleartype, the font on the Primary display looks good but on the other looks weird.

I have also tested with single display setup. i.e. connect only the RGB sub pixel display or the

BGR sub pixel display.
ClearType tuning works well for single display setup no matter which display I have connected.
But once I connect the 2nd display and tune using Cleartype, the font on the Primary display looks good but on the other looks weird. (The same as above)

To be more specific, the RGB display is Philips 278C4 (connect using HDMI), the BGR display is Dell P2714H (connect using DisplayPort. I have also tried DVI. DisplayPort or DVI give same result).
My system is Win 8.1 Pro x64 JA-JP with all latest patches installed, and my graphic card is nVidia GTX 760, with the latest driver installed.

I have owned multiple devices with stuck and dead pixels before, and the defect on the screen didn't look like one so i was thinking that it might be a scratch or something.

Hello guys, I'm having a strange problem, I have a P1 Pro Express Dual LG laptop, and there is a colored pixel dots on my monitor, sometimes they are flashing and changing location every second, and sometimes they are standing still, It's just odd.

My computer also crushes a lot and it seems like the colored dots is the source to all of my problems.
Of course I can take my computer to a technician and fix it, but maybe there is a possible solution I can try before wasting money.
Or perhaps, if there is no solution, what might be the problem (heat, video card, etc.)?
If you need any additional information in order to help me find a solution, just say.

Yours sincerely, Mike.

I got a new LG Flatron W2242S LCD monitor yeasterday and last night I saw that it had a stuck pixel o this morning I called the company who sold it to me - www.ebuyer.com - to return it, but they told me that anything up to 3 white stuck pixels, 7 stuck coloured pixels or 3 dead pixels was allowed before they or LG would accept that the monitor is faulty!

I've tried the tapping and rubbing methods but neither had any effect, and I have a program running on it now flashing waves of colours on the screen, but it also hasn't had any effect.

Ca anyone help me out? I don't know what else I can do, beyond actually trying to break some of the pixels so that ebuyer will have to take it back.

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.

Back in October I started noticing flickering green pixels on dark backgrounds on my screen, the flickering green pixels, when they are present are always in the same place.

The first thing I did was buy a new DVI cable and then I ran it from the monitor to a different DVI port in back of the GPU. The issue seemed fixed but then a day later the intermittent green pixels came back, at that point I totally uninstalled the newer Nvidia drivers I had recently installed using DDU and installed the drivers I never had issues with which were from early 2014. After I did that the problem seemed gone and everything was fine until last month when I replaced my mouse. I noticed my mouse pointer had three black dots following behind it in a horizontal pattern. I then removed the Nvidia drivers from early 2014 and installed the most current Nvidia drivers, I believe they're from the 14th of December. After I did this the three black dots following behind the mouse pointer vanished but a week or two later, the intermittent green pixels came back.

1. The intermittent green pixels do not show up in screenshots, I've taken numerous screenshots of the screen when they are present but in the screenshots they are nowhere to be seen.

2. They're showing up more often lately.

3. They don't seem to show up when if I set the display to a lower resolution or when I'm in the bios screen.

4. The GPU is a Nvidia 450 GTS and it is not overclocked and is usually running at 29c, the fan is runni... Read more

A:Flickering Green Pixel Issue = Monitor Or GPU

Hello and welcome Deviancy now my first thought was the monitor may be going south but in view of the changes around you swapping cables and drivers and the fact that the card is five years old now makes me wonder if the card is going south.

Have you access to another monitor to see if the same thing happens?

Second it may as well to test that card with this FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net now this can put a fair bit of stress on the card so best run when you are nearby to check things like temps etc.

This is a difficult problem to describe so have provided a screenshot attachment. I have been using the same setup for a year now and this has only just started happening.

I am getting a strange pixel-effect on my monitor, almost like a low bit-rate ghosting effect. If this happens on the desktop I can "refresh" the screen and the effect disappears. Sometimes (in browsers is when I've noticed this) the screen starts pixelating (low bit effect) and then just goes insane and the whole screen is effected and usually sends my monitor to sleep and kinda keeps waking up and I'm forced to hard reset the PC (as I can't even use the Start->Restart function.

Its driving me quickly insane so I hope someone can give me some ideas...

Thanks in advance,

I have a light blue stuck pixel on a dell monitor. How do I saftly attempt to
repair it. The pix is not black so I think it is not dead.

An online program called JScreenFix will make the blue dot faid out after 1 hour for a period of time. After I leave the monitor off for 24 hours the blue dot comes back. So it must be a stuck pixel?? Some times it comes back on it own when the monitor is on. Maybe I should try JScreenFix for a longer period of time. How long is good.

Applying pressure does not work but I don't know how much pressure I should
apply. I have been using a pencil erase head cut into a dull point.

PDpixel does not work. Only JScreenFix does the job on a temporary basis.
With PDpixel I don't know what interval settings should be used.

Any suggestions, I really don't want to give up??

A:Repairing a stuck pixel on a dell monitor? Don't want to give up.

Are you the same one who said it didn't bother you? I've heard of the "massage" (rolling pressure in the area at and just around the dead pixel) method but it's rate of success is apparently very low. How much pressure is too much? Well if you kill more pixels, that will be too much.

I put up with a dead pixel on a monitor for about a month and then my solution was to replace the monitor.

A:Monitor flashed Black from time to time

Under display adapters in device manager, is your 6800 M listed as the adapter? I ask because I'm sure it has to be a moblle graphic card and requires a specific moble driver inf file. Which you should beable to get from Dell with your service tag. If it is listed as a VGA then you definetly need the proper driver.

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...

My Windows 8 pro x64 is installed yesterday, behaves exactly like the old one from one week ago, exactly like the previous installation. If I run "sfc /scannow" my CBS.log is around 90-100 MB in size, it was 160 MB at some point. I am booting from a 60GB SSD if it matters. The system runs fine, I have no errors so the amount of errors reported by sfc is just... weird.

Dism reports every time that everything is OK, no errors found. Chkdsk also says nothing is wrong.
I did everything that was written in the sfc tutorials from within Windows, I ran sfc several times, I exported the log to sfcdetails.log and it has over 60 MB...

I looked into the file and all reported errors are the same type, like the one below with "file is missing" :

2013-07-25 09:54:06, Info CSI 00000012 [SR] Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"1394ohci.sys" of 1394.inf, Version = 6.2.9200.16384, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type = [l:24{12}]"driverUpdate", TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, file is missing

Now it's impossible to have the amount of errors reported, something else must be happening here.
Any ideas ?


A:sfc generates 90-160 MB logs

Hello jdaniel,

I totally agree with your logic, your findings, and your conclusion (implied) that sfc /scannow might not be all that it should. Specifically, I have seen many individuals report that "everything is fine" but they are compelled to do a "super-clean" check via running sfc /scannow only to be disappointed that it found many errors. This is why I recommend that users, not having a specific problem, should not run sfc /scannow. With that said, I am running it right now on my perfectly clean test rig. BTW, I looked at your log (briefly) and saw many missing files associated with the AMD architecture. Now, my test rig is an AMD based laptop so let's see what happens. I'll update my thread with my findings and we'll compare notes at that time so hang in ther and I'll be back shortly.

Hi folks,
I am not sure exactly when this started to occur, as I mostly use Linux on this box, and it's a while since I tried to install from an exe on the XP part.

When I try to run most installers for applications I get this error.
When I try to run SOME already installed applications (most are okay) I also get this error.

I have no idea what is causing it.
I have tested the ram and it came up okay. I tried to run a checkdsk on C: (which set itself to run on next reboot) but windows failed to boot when it came time.

"Access violation at address 004096DA. Write of address 00400000"

Any tool I've tried to install to try and fix it simply creates the same error and thus can't be installed. So my computer is a bit stuck!!

Does anyone have any bright ideas? I would really rather not reinstall Windows, which is about the only fix I can think of.

With thanks,

This error actually prevents quite a few programs from running. Not sure just how many.

In Safe Mode I have run various tools to clean up / fix the registry. I also ran a tool from http://wiki.djlizard.net/Repair_Permissions to repair registry permissions (in case that was the issue). All of these tools made a large number of changes. I also ran lastest Adaware and that cleaned a couple of minor things up.

Once back in normal boot mode, the problem persists.

I would really like to fix this.

Change your email account(s) password(s) to strong ones (don't use same password for each of them!). Monitor situation for a few days to see if issue still occurs.

Hi, I found a strange process running 'Autorunmex.exe' on a laptop. I realized that it generates a hidden annoying folder Reclyler on USB store devices, I tried to delete it but it regenerates, Antivirus or Antispyware software I used didn't detected it, what else can I do?

Lately I've been having some unusual network traffic. I've checked with Network Monitor 3.4 and the process name is either svchost or system or unknown.
How can I find out what generates the traffic ? There were mainly TCP packets, but others too.

I don't expect to solve the problem for me, just want some guides that you might know of, or tools to analyze network traffic, or some info on how to interpret Network Monitor frame details.

edit: antivirus/firewall/.. is hopeless

A:How to determine what generates network traffic?

You could try a packet sniffer/analyzer such as WinPcap... but they arent easy to figure out initially!

http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/Cisco-Average-Connection-Generates-149-GB-Monthly-111109Cisco's most recent Systems Visual Networking Index (VNI) Study notes that the average broadband connection is now generates 14.9 GB of Internet traffic per month, up 31% from 11.4 GB just last year. Unsurprisingly, Cisco notes that the majority of this is video driven, while P2P's share of the overall traffic pie continues to decrease. P2P traffic now accounts for 25% of global broadband traffic, down 34% from 38% of traffic last year -- while video now accounts for 26% of all traffic. Some other notables from the study:Click for full size• Over one-third of the top 50 sites by volume are video sites, and "contrary to popular belief," notes Cisco, none of them are pornography websites.• Ten of the top 50 sites are software update or security related, while in North America, nearly 60% of the top 100 sites for the last year were video and gaming sites.• Voice and video communications traffic (2% of all traffic) is now six times higher than data communications traffic such as email, instant messaging, instant messaging file transfer.• The top 1% of broadband connections are responsible for more than 20% of total Internet traffic, and the top 10% of connections are responsible for more than 60% of total Internet traffic.• During Internet "prime time," which ranges from 9PM to 1AM around the world, peak traffic is 72% higher than Internet t...

I have a data logging program that runs 24/7 and which displays a continuous record of the data on the CRT. It is really an MSDOS program, but it runs fine on Win98. When it is running, it takes over the entire display. The problem is that it will not tolerate ANY sort of screen output from another program. It immediately locks up, although it doesn't take Windows down with it.

I would like to use the task scheduler to run a little .bat script that uploads a day's worth of data to web page. I can redirect the output generated by various commands in the .bat to the NUL device, and prevent the script from generating any output, but Windows insists on opening a MSDOS window when the .bat runs, even though nothing gets displayed in it. Just opening the window is enough to derail the data collection program. I had hoped that I could do something like "upload.bat > NUL" but it doesn't work.

I could always write the script to run from another machine to control the process remotely, but I'm not thrilled with the idea of keeping a separate machine on line just to run a 10 second task once a day.

Anybody know a way around this?

A:Is it possible to write a .BAT file that generates NO screen output?

If you were running this on Windows 2000 or XP I would suggest using this.

There is a way to do this with a vbscript as well. Basically runs a command shell invisibly in the background without seeing it. I will have to digg up that link.
