can "massaging" a stuck pixel make it worse?

    i found a stuck pixel near the middle of my screen today (probably after cleaning the screen last night with a soft cloth...too much pressure??) anyway, it's really tiny and i can live with it if i have too; it really only shows up when i watch movies and there are dark parts of the screen.

    but i read that you can "massage" a pixel back to life and was wondering if that could make it worse and create more stuck pixels?

    thanks!

    Yes! I've massaged several pixels back to life - just massage away without being violent with the screen.You will need to apply some pressure though and be persistent.

    Good luck!

    I have done this to much success on several LCDs - Give it ago.

    It's unlikely that you'll make it worse, unless the surrounding pixels are also defective or weak as well, which is rare. Give it a try, I find that lcds hold under a good amount of abuse.
