Bright white spots appear on LCD screen
Posted 06 August 2009 - 08:50 PM
I'm just wondering if this is true and has any of you guys, especially if you own a Sony Vaio laptop, experienced this problem. Is this problem serious and that it might do further damage to my laptop. Sony people told me just to deal with it since it is just a few dead pixels but it is annoying to see white spots appearing on the screen not to mention that this laptop was expensive to purchase. I don't see how I can deal with this problem especially with the amount of money I paid for it.
Can you give me some suggestions about what I can do in this situation. My warranty is almost over and I want to get this problem out of the way. Thanks.

If it doesn't fix it, (as long as you're within warranty) Sony needs to replace your screen.

Welcome to PCWorld Community !
As you might know , a DEAD PIXEL cannot be fixed .It is a hardware related issue
and as such , the offending part has to be replaced, in this case, a LCD Panel.
A STUCK PIXEL , on the other hand , could be Unstuck with a small program
that is dedicated to this task. But, there is no garanty that Any of these methods
will succed in resolving your problem. Here is a site that "Might" help.
As a rule of thumb , 8 Dead Pixels have to be present in order for a reseler to
replace the defective part. If Sony has already replaced the LCD panel once
and the problem returns then, the OEM part is obviously defective but, keep
in mind that there Has to be a minimum of 8 Dead Pixels. Unfortunately, we
have had complaints from members about the support from Sony. This is all
the help I can be on this subject.
