Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.

Identifying a pixel malfunction

I just bought a brand spankin' new LCD display, and I've got a weird pixel. It isn't dead (there's color) and it isn't stuck (it can change color, more visible on a light background than dark). It is more like a bright pixel. On white it's super white, on black its a little less black. Can't notice a change on red or blue, but yellow, lime, green, etc. gives it a brighter shade of that color. What do you think it is and can anything be done for it?

e: looking at it some more, it's more green than anything, but it still isn't behaving like I've hear stuck pixels acting like. You can barely see it on black, and it's super visible on white. So confused.

    Stuck pixels seem odd sometimes because there are actually three sub-pixels (red, green and blue) that can become stuck independent of each other.

    Try running a stuck pixel fixer program and see if it helps. You could try lightly poking that spot on the screen (using a stylus works well if you have one) when it's malfunctioning, as well. I've had success with both of these methods in the past.
