Anyway, i'm contacting Epson again about this because no way i'm paying several thousand euro's for a machine with a dead pixel...

When you say switching source, do you mean switching by your AVR?
Another non-expert opinion.... If it were me, I wouldn't be suspecting a dead pixel but possibly a screen artifact, especially if it's not present at ALL TIMES. Does it disappear if you move right up to the screen and then move your point of view a foot or two left and right? Alternatively, if it only appears when switching sources or with a PC, then I'd, also, suspect a cable issue as Laminated67.
