It's possible if you give it some time you may forget to keep looking for it. My last tv, a plasma, had a tiny physical mark (I don't know how it happened) in the middle of the screen, but once I forgot about it, I didn't see it anymore because I wasn't trying to see it. Hope it all works out.Well, ladies and gentlemen, I hate to break up this whole firmware talk... Exciting times with 5.10.03 and all, but I have to unfortunately report that my 65" C8 with under 650 hours has a green stuck pixel... The only time I can really notice it is if the screen is black, or if I get up close and look right at it. Ran the full pixel refresher a few times, still there. Not sure if it's worth having LG come swap it out because the uniformity of the panel is pretty damn good. I guess maybe I'll wait it out a little longer, I've only had the TV since March.
