Small white spot on monitor, more visible with white screen.

There is a white spot on my monitor that is very bright and visible when there's a white background but only slightly visible with grey/black backgrounds.

Any idea what it could be?

  1. Post a pic?
  2. It could be a stuck or dead pixel. Is it a new monitor? Also post a picture if possible.
  3. If it was black - dead pixel.
    Are the surrounding pixels slightly discolored? Check up close. If you see a couple of random colours (no matter how tiny) when the screen is completely white, you've earned yourself a half-dead pixel. Same on my phone.
  4. It's not a dead pixel it's a bright little spot. The colors still work normally but on a white background the spot appears especially bright and on a black background it's a little subtle bright dot. (On a black background it appears like a greyish color.) It's not a single pixel, it looks like about 3 pixels and it sort of fades, it's not a sharp 3 pixel block that immediately stops it fades out over the course of about 3 pixels.

    It kind of looks like the backlight is super bright in that area for some reason.

    Well I take good care of my monitor and I don't go bumping it let alone pushing my finger into it, but after some googling I found that it could be a small contaminent such as a dust particle stuck between the screen and the LCD, thoughts?
  7. Sorry to revive a dead post but looks like I've got a similar issue:

    Noticed a large one a little while back and then just more recently saw a couple others (could have been there all along just not really noticed till now) They only appear on lighter backgrounds usually, but mostly seen on white and light blues.

    Close up of the biggest one, looks like the pixels are working fine:


    Since nobody answered I'm guessing there is no solution to this, but I am curious if timil notice it getting worse or anything since you last posted.

    Thanks!
  8. I just realized that I have the same problem too. I got the same bright spot on my screen. It's annoying :( are you sure it from dust particle? Can I remove the screen and clean it :((

    Amin

    Do you find any solution to fix that spot because and i have same problem on my screen ?? :/
  10. Same here.
  11. I have had this on multiple brand new laptops. In my case it's a manufacturing defect with the light diffuser material in the LCD backlight. I RMA'd until I got a LCD without the issue.
  12. I am having the same problem. Have you found any solution yet? My LCD was working fine for 1 month and after a month yesterday i started to notice that same thing suddenly and never noticed it before it just became more brighter since yesterday and becomes more bright with use. Any ideas? How to fix it?
  13. It's the pressure marks, something is pressing on the back panel of the LCD screen causing this kind of bright areas. It's not dead pixels.
    I have some small areas like this on my brand new Razer Blade 14, this is a very common flaw in LCD manufacturing process and it is not something you can fix by yourself. You've got 2 choices: return the product until you get a perfect one, or, live with it.
  14. i have a laptop with a plastic like lid i just tap on the back lightly and they went away

    There is a few solutions online that I've seen on YouTube. He removes the lcd, then cleans the back light panel with a q tip, and toothpaste. The 3 spots that he cleaned were gone afterwards
  16. I too have this issue with my new Dell S2216H monitor. The colors are working fine but the white spot is visible on white background. Any possible fixes?

    I am also using Dell S2216H 1080p monitor.It has 3-4 white patches on the screen :? Thinking to go to the service centre as my monitor is less than 2 months.
  18. It appeared on my hp laptop also, i found the reason for me was i placed something on my laptop when the lid was close but laptop running. I think that caused the problem. When i press back of my laptop screen i can see that same type of dot temporarily. I have asked hp support to replace it as its in accidental protection.
  19. No solution but I just wanna say that I bought a sony 4k TV just yesterday (XBR43X830C) which was working fine. However about an hour ago I turned off the tv for like 20 minutes to go do other stuff. I came back, turned it on and had the bright spots. 5 of them across the screen. Obviously not from pressure or whatever because no one was in my room, and I find the dust thing unlikely in this short amount of time...
  20. instead of massage, I pulled the screen with a Vacuum Suction Cup, SOLVED!!!

    Hi! How did you pull it off exactly? Did you use the suction cup right on the front of the LCD or did you open it up and pulled from behind?

    In the front of the lcd, without open. Keeped the pressure with the screen off and then turned on. Pressure to move my MacBook in my bed
  23. i have the same issue with my lappy display....
    what i found is that issue is caused due to the pressure(on particular area where spot is) on the back side of the display...
    this issue is more common with laptops as its back of display can be pressurised even with a finger.
    one can notice appearance of the same spot by pressurising laptop display lid with finger.
    And for solution open case solution could be fine but i personally think that its a damage to the display still looking for the possible solution.

    I got the same prob today and i found this thread. My PC is Lenovo C340 All-In-One.

    None touched the screen so I suppose it is the dust. But I don't have a clue how to clean it inside as I never opened the PC. I bought it in 2013.

    almost as if the screen is corroded....right???
  30. I just noticed if I press on the bottom of the screen the spot moves. I think it is pressure from the screen on the back. There might be a way to remove the screen and place something to gap the back from the LCD
