I've never had this happen before...

anyway, the first thing I did when I powered up my MBP was check for dead pixels. I was happy to get nearly a perfect display. no dead pixels, backlight bleeding, or yellow screen (except in extreme horizontal views)

Over a month later, a random red stuck pixel just appears on near the center of my screen. I am 100% sure it was not there ORIGINALLY and just appeared today. It is extremely noticeable on a black background. I am very picky about display quality and dead pixels.. (I have exchanged several Dell 2405/2407s until I got a "perfect" display.)

i do graphic design, & 3d modeling, i do use the laptop display at work with external monitors, i could live with the headphone buzzing problem but display problems make me angry :mad:

I had a stuck pixel appear outta no where, I gave it a little push, gently with your finger on the pixel, and it went away. You can also try one of those pixel fixer apps.

I used the tip of my stylus from my pocket pc to gently tap it out. The stuck pixels are easier to deal with than the Dead ones. Tapping it should knock her back into submission.
