Hey all, I've had my Pioneer 500m for a little under a year now, and I love it!
But over the past year I've begun to notice more and more dead/stuck pixels.
Normally they don't bother me, as I can usually keep them out of my mind while watching TV, and they are somewhat hard to spot when I sit close. And they are impossible to spot when I sit at my normal seating distance.
I've heard pioneer won't do anything unless you have more than 15 or so dead pixels?
I think I probably have anywhere around the ball park of 5-11 dead/stuck pixels. I'm not sure how many are bad because I don't want to keep finding bad pixels, and some of them aren't completely dead because they work on some colors. So it's made it tough to get a firm number.
My question is, should I contact pioneer or the dealer that I purchased it from? Is there anything they could do....or better yet, is it even worth it?
I just figured if there was something that could be done in my case, I should do it soon before the warranty runs out.
It is kinda funny though, when I bought the TV, I bought a "Pixel Perfect" package so they would check to make sure there were no dead pixels on arrival, but in less then a year then my pixels have started failing. Kinda ironic.
Anyway, Thanks in Advance!
