Any idea of what this spot is how to get rid of it?


I just got a new 27 inch monitor. Of course the first thing I do is look at an all white/black screen to see if can spot any dead pixels. I don't see any at first glance, but 5 minutes later - i see a dark spot on the screen. Sure enough, it isn't going away so I figure it must be a dead pixel.

I took a close up photo of it and its odd because the dark spot area seems to span several pixels, yet no individual pixel is completely dark/dead. For comparison, I created a 1 pixel black dot in paint (to the right of the mystery spot). It clearly spans each of the RGB cells for the pixel (as it should).

I've already tried running JScreenFix, turning the monitor off and on, and even unplugging it overnight. Unfortunately, it remains. Could this spot be somehow related to a shipping error?

Thanks 16.7 million.

I have had "bad pixels" on my monitors (3 Samsungs and a Sceptre). I fixed them by gently pressing the screen directly on the spots.

I tried giving it a "pixel massage" but with no luck. Besides, as I mentioned earlier... I don't think it's a dead pixel (note that the right spot is a black pixel in MSPaint. the left spot is the unknown dark spot).
