Dead pixel keeps going and coming back

So, I have the Asus VN247 and I keep getting a red dead pixel in the same place. If I touch it slightly, it goes. Then it comes back after a week; I do the same thing and put pressure on it very lightly and it goes. Is this something to worry about or not? Also, If I put pressure on a certain place, the pixel will come back. If I let go, the pixel will go.

    First of all, this is funny, if you just got the screen, and that annoys you, give it back to the shop and take another one instead.

    This doesn't help me at all, I need a solution and someone to tell me if this is bad or not?

    if one pixel died, more might too, this is a screen problem, and you should return it too the shop( you can wait and see if it gets worst or not, but maybe when it does, the shop wont accept it back anymore).

    sorry for not answering your question correctly the first time.
  4. most lower end screens have a certain tolerance policy for dead pixels and 1 or 2, they aren't going to return it or replace it anyways.

    If it's still under warranty, get it fixed/replaced. Some companies, though, do have a limit on dead pixels. Maybe 3 or so, before they consider it 'bad'.

    Other than that...there is no 'user fix' for it. Dead pixels happen.

    I had a dead pixel when I got it. But I am just curious on why it keeps coming back and then goes.

  7. You should try and return, if its a shop you buy from often, and they know you, they would most likely accept it back, and give you another one.

    and you quoted me without writing anything.

    Yeah, sorry about that. I have had this dead pixel ever since I got the monitor which was around 4 months ago. It doesn't bother me because I can't see it unless I place pressure onto the monitor itself. I was just wondering if this is a sign of my monitoring dying, after just having it for 3-4 months.

    most likely no, and since its been that long you probably wont be able to return it anyways, just dont worry about it, and probably the condition will stay the same.
  10. Even big lcd companies have a tolerance for dead pixels. Check this out
    http://www.tested.com/tech/1337-we-uncover-the-dead-pixel-policies-for-every-major-lcd-maker/

    While the place you bought it from (BestBuy, Walmart...etc) may exchange it, you're likely to not get any love from the manufacturer unless it meets their replacement criteria which is sounds like it wont since there is only 1 pixel
  11. You guys are saying you won't be able to replace it, if you read the question. I never asked that what so ever about a replacement. I asked if it's bad, and if I should be worried about it.
  12. No its not bad (aside from the fact that you have a dead pixel)

    If you read what we said about tolerances, you could have gathered that if the manufacturer expects this type of thing to happen, then its obviously not going to explode
