Never had this happen before. Monitor is 2 years old I think. Any way to fix this, or is it time for a new display?

Can't fix a dead pixel. I have a dead one in the bottom right of my s2716 and can't even notice it when I'm looking for it. Unless it's in the middle, don't worry about it.

Unless it's in the middle


That exact thing happened to my old XB270HU before it broke. I had to deal with it for like half a year having a dead pixel in the direct center of my screen. It was super noticeable any time I was looking at web pages and things. In games it wasn't too bad but when I wasn't gaming it was really annoying.

There's a few things you can try, but if it's actually dead there's really not much you can do but replace it.

If it's just stuck, you may be able to rub it out (heh). I've actually had this work before. Just used my finger though.

You can try one of those "dead pixel fixers", they cycle through colors really fast so don't use it if you're seizure prone. Never seen one of those do anything.

Generally not much you can do if the pixel is dead and black. Either sell the display used, or keep it and forget that pixel exists in a few weeks anyway.

Unless you are for sure it's a stuck pixel, there's nothing you can do. Just gotta deal with it, it's honestly no biggie once you stop worrying about it.

In the future if you accumulate more dead pixels in the same area, and you're still under warranty, most manufacturers have a 2-3 dead pixel in an area policy so you can RMA it.
