When watching my projector recently (Sony HS-10), I've noticed a white "dot" - for lack of a better word - on the screen in the same place each time I view a movie. You can only see it on really bright scenes, and, only when you're looking at the screen at a certain angle - i.e. if I move my a head a bit (during a bright scene), the white "dot" will disappear. Although, it doesn't disappear - I just can't see it at that particular angle.


Is this a dead pixel, or something else? It seems to be visible each time I turn on the projector.


Thanks for any feedback.

Sounds like a weird one for an LCD projector.

The thing to do would be to pause a scene where you can see it clearly.

Then walk right up to the screen.

Does this "spot" fit squarely within the grid of your pixel structure (A.K.A. screendoor)???

If it does, it is a defective pixel. I would think, however, that is is a color other than white ... I have never seen a white dead/stuck pixel.

Actually, can it even happen?

If I am visualizing it properly, all 3 LCD panels would need to have the exact same location stuck open for the white light to travel all the way through.

And of all those thousands of pixels .. to have the exact same location stuck on 3 panels would be phenomenal.


In any case, take a look and let us know.

It's a stuck pixel, I have 1 that you can only see when you put up a complete blue screen, and it looks white as you walk upto the screen but it's actually a light shade of blue.


Not bad for 1+mill pixels to have just the 1 that you can't even see from more than around 12 inchs and further.
