This Rizone Pixel Repair freeware detects and fixes stuck pixels on flat LCD screens. It won’t bring completely dead (i.e. black) pixels back to life, but it should work if they’re just stuck on a particular colour.
It’s very easy to use. Just fire it up, and click on a colour to have it cover the whole screen. You can then search for and locate dead pixels, and marke them to be fixed. Then press the Go button and the program will flash the screen at a user customisable speed to ‘unstick’ the pixel.
The developers warn that it doesn’t always work, but it’s definitely a great way to try and sort out any annoying spots, and it sure beats throwing the monitor away or getting your laptop fixed by an expensive professional. One for the toolbox. Oh and you can also use the program to help clean off stubborn dust/grime spots that are hard to see normally. Nice.
You can use the ‘Dead pixel locator’ section on ‘Rizone Pixel Repair’ to look for dead or stuck pixels. You can also use this section to help you find dirty little spots and dust when you clean your screen (Because dust doesn’t show on all colours). Now, after you’ve located stuck pixels, try to repair them with this tool. Set the colour mode, press go and place the flashy window thingy under the stuck pixel. Sometimes this unsticks that pixel, but as stated before, not always.
