Dead Pixel Policy

2010-07-31, 12:27 PM

**bleep**, looks like I have my first dead pixel.  Never had a single one on my 5 year old 1920x1080 Dell D810, yet this not even 6 month old W510 has one already.  :(

 

Looks like the Lenovo magic number is 3:

Anyone else have any dead pixels?  Anyone know of any good software to check for them?  (i.e., test various color transitions).

 

I notice if I tap the back of the screen gently, it'll sometimes coax the pixel to behave -- maybe there's a general fix?

Don, I feel bad that you're having these issues with your 510, but you're doing a good deed to the community by posting them so the rest of us know what to do when/if we encounter these.

 

Crossing my fingers my 510 doesn't start acting up.

Thanks - that is a truly great piece of free software -- hasn't fixed my dead pixel, but great for diagnosing, etc.

I have on my T61 almost 3 years old dead pixels too. I will have to call to my support center to ask what can I do or what can do they do.

FWIW, I still have just the 1 dead pixel. It comes and goes -- it'll be fine for a couple weeks, then go black for a couple weeks, then go red for a couple weeks....

I can't belive it but Lenovo Service has replaced my broken LCD on new. My warranty ended on 25th of Nov and I had gone to Service on Monday 22nd od Nov. I didn't have any warranty because I had bought my Notebook from third-hand. I thought they will not replace LCD but they did it. Lenovo service is great. I love them!

 

My pixels were definitly broken, look on those pics: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=KNSQUA4F

 

Thank U Lenovo!
