There is a "stuck" pixel (red) in the LCD screen of my camera. I have checked and it does not affect images at all. Just a bit annoying.Sad

I have read on the web various methods of sorting stuck pixels, including applying pressure with a damp cloth and something like a point of a pencil to the area of the screen affected. All sounds a bit dodgy to me!

Has anyone tried this, or another, method? Or is it better just to ignore the little blighter? Smile

I have a tablet with a number of blue stuck pixels. I have not tried to remedy it yet but i wouldn't try incase i make it worse. I would just leave it if i were you.

Unlike dead pixels, they often disappear in time by themselves, and as they are not causing any damage, I'd just accept it.

Thanks for the advice Umberto and Malc.

Taking no action............ worked - stuck pixel appears to have unstuck! cool-light.jpg

I was covering a corporate event a couple of days ago and was turning the camera on and off quite a bit (in between the tedious monologues!) to save battery. I think that might have helped.
