A Program That Can Fix Dead Pixels On Your LCD Screen.

I found this two programs that helps to locate and fix LCD screens dead pixels. You can move flash zone with cursor and select color by right clicking on the flash area.

The first is called UDPixel, created by Samuel Larché and it’s free.

It works on windows Vista, XP and 2000. There is a Pocket PC version too.

You need also the .NET Framework Version 2.0

JScreenFix is a free software solution that can fix stuck pixels, reduce screen burn-in and improve the quality of images displayed on a screen.
JScreenFix is a Java applet that randomly turns on and off every colour component on the screen at up to 60 times a second. and because it is a Java applet it will run on almost anything.

I had 3 dead pixels, i run the program for 10 hours and two of them are fixed now, but i can't get the third one to resurrect, i think he already gone to hell or something :P

I have bright area in my laptop's lcd screen can there be anything done for this?
By coucou, Date: 6/16/2007
you cannot fix dead pixels, only stuck ones!!!
By chimpz, Date: 6/17/2007
Could someone please explain exactly what is the difference between a DEAD and a STUCK pixel?

I have a pixel that shows only green and blue, and the red part is always black (dead-green-blue)
Is there a chance?
By Limbo, Date: 6/18/2007
Dead pixel: Black dot. No light on it. Dead.
Stick pixel: White, or colored dots.

anything out there for a mac?
By lux, Date: 6/18/2007
JScreen Fix runs in your browser if you want it to:

I used it on my mac
By omgtron, Date: 6/18/2007
lol, macs
By wtf, Date: 6/18/2007
does it work on macs? i hope that was a joke
By kinaboo, Date: 6/18/2007
Run Parallels...and open your windows...
By Kim Shay, Date: 6/18/2007
I love how mac users get accused of being fanatics and yet it's always the PC users going on the offensive.
By yabadabadoo, Date: 6/18/2007
Ran this for 12 hours and it did nothing for the dozens of black pixels on my screen....wiped the screen down with a damp cloth and BAM! all better.
UDPixel - No multiple monitor support
By X-Cubed, Date: 6/18/2007
Only seems to run on the primary monitor. You're screwed if you have a dual monitor setup with dead pixels on the secondary monitor.
By ..., Date: 6/18/2007
Couldn't you just briefly set the secondary monitor the your primary one to run the program?...
no yur not scrood
By yossi, Date: 6/18/2007
alls yu gots to do is plug the 2nd screen in to the first ones plug for a bit
By Stefan, Date: 6/18/2007
Herm... I have a DS that has a stuck blue pixel on it, I wonder if there's any way I could get this to run on it...
By COLIN, Date: 6/18/2007
You rub on dead pixels and to the x and y axis of it as well. It will get rid of it if you run right.
Fix with the Force of the Hand
By Daniel, Date: 6/18/2007
A dead pixel appeared on my Samsung 940N a few days ago. I was really p*ssed, thinking about how I should proceed and how frustrating the replacement will be. In this mood I angrily pressed that pixel with my finger - and it DISAPPEARED. First I was shocked, then surprised, then happy :)
It worked
By Karlo, Date: 6/18/2007
It worked on my IBM/Lenovo T60 with one dead pixel.
By Ivan, Date: 6/18/2007
Hope this one works with my old HP laptop which need to be fixed.

By Bong, Date: 6/18/2007
What about for linux? Why don't they just make a java applet for it so that it could just be platform independent?
WTF? Just press..
By hp, Date: 6/18/2007
..your finger on the dead pixel at your display, and voila.. doesnt work? just press a nit harder .. and no shitty DotNet2 needed..
RE: Fix with the Force of the Hand
By Yiorgos, Date: 6/18/2007
Daniel, this is a well-known trick! Re-invented by many happy users, you & me included!
Switch Monitors
By Taz Devil, Date: 6/18/2007
Switch over to your main monitor or if you are running windows alter the setting so that it is the primary monitor. ??????
By Jim, Date: 6/18/2007
No need to spam is there.. I've used this program a while ago, it works great, although as mentioned only with pixels that are STUCK and not DEAD.
Not bad..
By Stan, Date: 6/18/2007
Tried it on my new IBM laptop.. with a white dead pixel.. hmm it kinda work.. but still a funny shade. Had some luck with this It managed to fix another earlier dead pixel but not the white one.
By Jay Wollmann, Date: 6/18/2007
This is fascinating, how does it work exactly?
Applet for Linux, Mac, Second Monitor
By lux, Date: 6/18/2007

Just scroll down, its right there... an applet you can move anywhere on either of your screens under any OS.
Hopefully this will work....
By Rob, Date: 6/19/2007
I like how this one is actually free, vs the JScreenFix(the offline version)... I will run this in the background over the stuck pixel and hopefully it will get fixed!!! (and if it does i will donate a good bit :p)
Other way round
By byrongeorge, Date: 6/19/2007
Anyone know a way of killing pixels - if I get enough dead ones I can swap my monitor under the guarantee rules
i dont get it
By chuch, Date: 6/19/2007
how do i use this thing. it just makes the whole screen any color i choose and i dont know how to make it work
Sharp 32 LCD HDTV
By Suraj, Date: 6/20/2007
Does it work on a Sharp 32 in HDTV LCD TV? I use it as my computer screen too.
By zied, Date: 6/21/2007
I have had 2 red pixels for quite a while on my monitor, ran the app for about 30 mins no real change. Then saw you guys mention 'massaging' it. I gently rubbed near the stuck pixels and they were fixed. huzzah!
By z, Date: 6/21/2007
I tried these types of programs before, but it won't fix my pink-purplish pixel. I guess it's because that color means there are two colors that are screwed up simultaneously...
By zwar, Date: 7/4/2007
the wet q-tip did it for me, i massaged it for 10-20 sec then applied pressure on it for another 10 sec, turned the monitor and back on, at that point the pixel was flickering, so i just touched it with my finger and it went away...thx for the tip...q-tip that is...haha i just had to say it
No luck for me
By agutsakias, Date: 7/15/2007
I have a red dot on my screen that becames visible on black and blue wallpapers. I tried the q-tip by pushing and rubbing and it didn't work and i tried the Undeadpixel with no luck again.But i've seen it works for a friend of mine.
By Kodiak, Date: 7/19/2007
My dead pixels came to life again but now when I listen closely to the screen with my ear, I hear them say "Brains, brains..."
nothing works
By alon, Date: 7/24/2007
nothing works
tried massaging, tapping, pressing, 4 types of programs, and the little red dot is still there
This works i think..
By stanley, Date: 7/29/2007
Try this site: .. it worked i think.. or thats what my brother told me.. he fixed his lcd dead pixel back to live using that..
Try this one too
By Lurker, Date: 9/18/2007
I found another alternative to this. You can try
Other uses
By Roger, Date: 9/26/2007
I was wondering if you can use the program to refresh the overall color quality of the monitor. Since alot the graphics cards drivers are load in the initial configuration of any computers, can it reallocate memory to make look like the monitor is new.
Use pressure
By Yee, Date: 10/21/2007
Finally it worked! Really, people should just apply pressure to their dead pixel though. Mine was on the very edge of my screen so I had trouble pressing against it so I was forced to use my fingernail.
Pressure trick works !
By Vishal, Date: 11/4/2007
The program did not help.... but the pressure trick in the comments did! Using Samsung Synchmaster 931BF

Hot pixel
By Vampiro, Date: 11/27/2007
Does the program repairs hot (is it the same as stuck?) pixel?
I think it's hot pixel
By Vampiro, Date: 11/27/2007
I think it's a hot pixel because i can only see it in black,grey or dark blue backgrounds
Funny story
By Mihic, Date: 11/30/2007
I have a N95, which strted to have a few pixels dead in a group, more than 30 for sure, but it's funny cause, thery black on if the backlight is on, but when it turns of, the colors are right there, and these UNfixable dead pixels seem to vary where they are and some r gone there r soem new... I'm running a Jscreeenfix middlet on it, and... not much effect, but it seem there are a few less of them, nad masaging didn't work, makes em dissapper or make a few surrounding pixels white for a moment but thats it... any word about this?

x dot
By greendot, Date: 8/15/2008
My green dot has now got a tail as i tried to use the pressure method. Got this green dot from out of the box (eee pc).
Hope this program works.
Persistent green dot
By Piton, Date: 8/15/2008
I have tryed all the flashing programs for hours and hours ... about 14 and it didn't work so I have used the presure method described on wikihow's website

Pressure Method

1. Turn off your computer's monitor.
2. Get yourself a damp washcloth, so that you don't scratch your screen.
3. Take a household pen, pencil, screwdriver, or some other sort of instrument with a focused, but relatively dull, point. A very good tool would be a PDA stylus.
4. Fold the washcloth to make sure you don't accidentally puncture it and scratch the screen.
5. Apply pressure through the folded washcloth with the instrument to exactly where the stuck pixel is. Try not to put pressure anywhere else, as this may make more stuck pixels.
6. While applying pressure, turn on your computer and screen.
7. Remove pressure and the stuck pixel should be gone. This works as the liquid in the liquid crystal has not spread into each little pixel. This liquid is used with the backlight on your monitor, allowing different amounts of light through, which creates the different colors.

It worked first time

I have located the pixel and put the pen wrapped in a cloth exactly on the pixel - switched the computer off. Turned it back on and it vanished.

Very happy I won't have to wait for another week to get a replacement that might do exactly the same

Remember not to presure it too much - you can damage the screen. If you didn't get it first time just slightly increase the presure second time.

Good luck
Didn't work!
By zak connan, Date: 10/22/2008
I used this on a red pixel on my 17" lcd, along with the pressure method and now I have another dead pixel next to it. Thanks a lot.
@ zak connan
By narudo, Date: 10/27/2008
did the same thing and I got another dead pixel lolz! annoying
Didnt work
By Johnson, Date: 11/18/2008
im not sure if it didnt work or if it was a combination of two things.

I have a stuck red pixel , so i set my backround to black (and for those saying you cant use your 2nd monitor for this program , you're crazy btw) so i can easily see the pixel.

Ran this on 5x5 for around 30 mins and did nothing...but then i started rubbing it , which i thought was ridiculous , but it actually freaking worked , i did rub it while the 5x5 was over the pixel , dunno if that helped but im one happy son of a bitch! i cant stand dead pixels!
it worked.
By Ross, Date: 12/26/2008
the pressure technique worked. but all i did was just get an ordinary q-top that isnt wet and just apply pressure to the spot with the stuck pixel, turn monitor on and off. the stuck pixel started flickering and all i did was just tap it and it should go away. after that, you might be able to just tap it with your finger, but if not, do the steps over again.

Pink pixel
By Walt, Date: 1/1/2010
I bought a screen just some few days ago, and yesterday i discoverd a pink pixel, but it only appears under certain colours, like brown or blue, you cant se it when the background is white or black. Still it is annyoing, ive tried running the program for like 15 min and it doesnt seem to work, getting frustrated. And i cant find the reset either so thats even more frustraiting. So is it a dead pixel stuck or whatever it is.
By Mike M., Date: 1/7/2010

Jscreenfix clears LCD bruising
By oojimmyflip, Date: 10/31/2010
Ive been running JScreenfix on a philips 32 inch LCD tv for a day and a half the bruising in the top left hand corner of the screen is dissapating slowley, I'm going to keep running the program on the screen to see if it goes completely.
Personally I think people are expecting quick results with this screenfix program when they really should have a a bit more patience.
it is trully working but as I said taking its time.
By test, Date: 11/12/2010
im trying it now
By Wow, Date: 11/23/2010
Thanks you very much , I had problems with the stuck pixel because it was in the middle of the screen.

After running the program for around an hour, it is gone. :)

my hp pavillion g6 has a straight red line down on the screen.can anyone pls help me out?
By Yunn, Date: 9/28/2011
Well, I've had my netbooks screen replaced. Then with the replaced screen I found 3 black dots.
Guess what. I rubbed my finger against one of the dots and... it rubbed off. It was a pixel-size dust.
The other two though, I am sure they were BLACK(=Dead Pixels) but somehow they switched to 'BLUE' and 'PINK' with this program.
Wonder if they'll turn back normal soon...
Lines of weird pixels?
By Yunn, Date: 9/28/2011
I once had rows of colorful pixels on my notebook (not netbook) computer's screen.
at first it was only a single line of dead (black) pixels, but as time went by it started to spread. Then it started 'klling' pixels nearby. It became worse when I applied pressure. After a couple of days, new rows of dead pixels started to appear, went through the same procedures and multiplied itself.
I ran this program on the notebook for several hours but it didn't help.
I ended up paying $200 to get the LCD replaced.
