1. Turn off your computer's monitor.
2. Get yourself a damp cloth, so that you don't scratch your screen.
3. Apply pressure to the area where the stuck pixel is. Do not put pressure
anywhere else, as this may make more stuck pixels.
4. While applying pressure, turn on your computer and screen.
5. Remove pressure and the stuck pixel should be gone. This works as the liquid in the liquid crystal has not spread into each little pixel. This liquid is used with the backlight on your monitor, allowing different amounts of light through, which creates the different colours.
* Many people report success with this technique but these instructions won't work in every case.
* These instructions will fix "stuck" pixels, not "dead" ones. Dead pixels appear black while stuck pixels can be one constant color like red, blue or green.
* An alternative, but similar technique involves gently massaging the stuck pixel on your screen. Another method involves playing a video (available for download in external links below) which changes colors 30 times per second.
* If these instructions don't work, you can hopefully get the monitor fixed through your manufacturer. Follow the link at the bottom of the page to the Tom's Hardware article on how many pixels it takes for your specific manufacturer to replace the whole monitor. If your monitor falls under the specifications of replacement, get in contact with the manufacturer to set up replacement plans.
* Gently tapping the area can also work in some cases.
* Do not attempt to open the monitor as it will void the warranty and the manufacturer will not replace it.
* Make sure you don't get any electrical equipment wet or it may break.
* Some people claim that this can cause more pixels to become stuck, although this has not been proven. This claim is more prevalent with the color-changing video than with the pushing method.
