I've had this unit six months. I checked it very closely when I got it and there were no stuck-on pixels. I just noticed 6. All of them except 2 are of minimal brightness you can't see beyond 2ft. The other two can be seen beyond 2 ft.


I checked this by turning to an input with no source attached.


At first, I just thought there was a drop of moisture on the panel....aaaah.


Hope it doesn't get any worse! Anyone know Sharp's policy on this kind of thing?

Yes. From the manual:

"• The Liquid Crystal panel is a very high technology product with 3,147,264 thin film transistors, giving you fine picture details.

Occasionally, a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as a fixed point of blue, green or red. Please note that this does not affect the performance of your product."

IOW, this is not a problem.

Well, Mr. Helper, actually, it is a problem. Just not one they're will to do anything about.

It's not really a problem. My concern was that pixels had started to die after 6 months and it was going to get worse and worse, but they may have been there from the start. I checked it when I got it, but I don't recall doing it with no signal (black screen) which is why I may have missed them at that point.


There's only two you can see in daylight (if you know where to look) and, once you back up 4-5 feet, you can't seem them any more, so no big deal.

Thats not good at all. My lap top has one stuck purple pixel right in the middle of it and it DRIVES me NUTS :( I can not imagine a TV doing the same thing. Has anyone else has any issues with the pixels on the Sharp products? I'm in the market for an LCD, and do not want to run into that problem. Its frustrating since most manufactures only cover it against pixels in the middle or at least 6-8 of them to be lit, stuck, or dead. Since you have purchased past 6 months it sounds like its on the manufactures at this point. Best of luck and I hope all goes well. sorry to hear on the pixels going bad.


Regards,

Cambryn

Stuck ones are going to be much more noticeable in camera LCDs, camcorder, PDA, laptop, etc. The screen is inches from your face.


With tvs at 8 ft. or more, you will often never be able to see stuck pixels.


I have a cluster of 4 on my RP-LCD, very visible at 12 ft, I suspect the mf'r will replace the light engine but I'm not in a great rush to have it done.
