    I was watching a movie today, and noticed a dot on the screen. I scrubbed it hardcore, and it didn't go away. I freaked out because it might be a stuck pixel. After close observation, there are tiny extensions (probably its feet) around the 1-2 pixel size bug. I've taken a screen capture, but the bug is not displayed on it. Is it actually a bug? Should I take the glass off and exterminate the thing?

    I've had this before where a bug was actually inside the display panel and crawling around. He then decided to die, I guess from heat right smack bang in the middle of the screen. If it's just behind the glass you could probably take it off with suction cups like iFixit did. If it's inside the screen, you've got some bigger issues.

    Ah crap, I hope its not inside the screen, but just behind the glass -_- I noticed it moved off the screen, and disappeared behind the black bezel. I'll remove the glass using that guide, thanks!

    I'll try to get a picture of the bug :)
