Screen Fix

Recently, marks of stuck pixels have been showing up at the edge of the screen. It's so noticeable its not even funny. I asked a friend whether I am entitled to send it for warranty, but he answered;

..."No, the warranty does not cover stuck pixels".

I felt doomed, as the stuck pixels can be annoying when I have a light wallpaper. He then replied that there is a software which claims to be about 50% success rate.

Enter http://www.jscreenfix.com/ .

JScreenFix is a Java Applet that changes pixel colors rapidly(about 60Hz). I left it overnight, and my, it did work. There are still stuck pixels there, but its alot lighter now.(Click image to enlarge)

BEFORE(10pm):
As you can see, there are noticeable streaks of stuck pixels.


AFTER(6am):
JScreenFix did help alot. There are still streaks of unstuck pixels, but they are not noticeable unless you stare at the screen closely.

I am going to leave the applet on for another few hours, and see if it is possible to remove all the stuck pixels

UPDATE(8.35am):
Seems like there is minimal stuck pixels now. I cant provide a better close up(camera not able to focus).

Safe to say, this program actually works. For those of you having stuck pixels, you can try out JScreenFix.

Good to see that this software works on your monitor screen. :)
Let me know again if the shadow entirely gone.
