I just bought the 1916 LCD flat screen and I have a question.
When the screen is on, but the pixels are set to black (when you turn on the computer or even if you put a black wallpaper), I can see a brighter spot in the center of the screen.
Like a blurred area which is a bit whiter.
I wanted to know if this is normal or if there is a slight problem with the screen.
Thanks a lot,

HI, Are you sure that there is balck dot on the sreen. Check one more time is it any dust on the screen. Black spot Means pixel of the Lcd sreen is fault. There are thousands of pixels in an lcd screen. when any of the pixel or a group of pixels become faulty the black spot will appear. Its not possile to rectify the problem other than replacing the LCD panle if its avilable. The avilability of lcd screen is very rare. Ajin
Dead and Stuck Pixels
Pixel defects for an LCD monitor are defined as one of two types: dead or stuck. Technically, both types of pixel defects are stuck pixels but it really deals with the electrical currents and the state of each pixel or sub-pixel.
A dead pixel is defined as a pixel or set of sub-pixels that has failed and is permanently in the off position. This condition means that the pixel will not let any light through. This can be observed as a dark or black spot on a brightly colored or white background.
A stuck pixel is defined as a pixel or sub-pixel that has failed and is permanently in the on position. This can be either with a single or multiple sub-pixels for a given pixel and is best observed on a dark or black background. A white pixel means all three sub-pixels have failed while a green, red or blue pixel means one of the sub-pixels has failed.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution
The bright spots which you are seeing my be the failed pixels on the screen.
Once connect the external monitor to the notebook and check the display on the external display.
If you don't have external monitor, then restart the notebook and Press F10 or F2 key to Enter into BIOS. If the screen is same with bright pixels in the BIOS screen, then the it is confirmed the issues is with bad pixels.
If your notebook is under warranty, then HP will arrange for mail-in.
Note: There is Pixel policy from HP, go through thebelow URL:
These kind of patches or spots are called as Dead Pixels.
If you find any thing that doesnot change colour along with the other part of the Display according to the image, those spots are referred as Dead Pixels where the LCD needs to be replaced.
Contact your nearest HP Authorized Service Center and find the cost to get the LCD replaced.
really? here's the thing..try to check the display settings manually.press the menu button of your monitor then try adjust the contrast, brightness and colors as well to your desired level..if your'e using LCD monitors, these are very sensitive and can be easily damaged if don't handle it very well..don't press the auto button always because it will automatically adjust the settings every now and then..
