Bad Pixel in LCD (not CCD)

Ust received my 3000z from Buy.com, and lo and behold, the LCD (not the CCD) has a dead pixel that always is red. This became imediatley evident when in any menu (either blue or black background). It's only one pixel, but that is one too many. I am sending it back for a new unit. I saw the other thread (BAD PIXEL) but that seemed to do with CCD pixels, not LCD pixels. Are others getting cameras with dead LCD pixels? I hope I only need to send bacl one camera, not several.

Re: Bad Pixel in LCD (not CCD)

My camera also has a one bad pixel in the LCD; my pixel is green. My camera was also ordered from Buy.com. They have been very helpful and my story is almost identical to yours for their return/replacement practice. It is really nice to see online companies that continue to offer 'great' prices and also provide great customer support.

Tiny black spot lcd


Erika, Do you mean you have a black spot on the LCD of your camera?
We call that a dead pixel. Can be black and can be white. Most LCD's sooner or later have a one or more dead pixel(s). As long as they are not in the centre of the screen you won't notice them. Even dead pixels on the camera sensor can happen. These you won't see at all, because the software does calculate what that pixel would look like in that specific shot. And the software will place a correct colour on that spot.
Try to live with the dead pixel(s). you won't see them on the actual pictures. Not on the computer to tablet and not on a print.

All picture taken found with 1 white dot at the location


The problem you are encountering is called a "dead pixel". Every ccd has several dead pixel, so it is quite normal. But I agree that it can be annoying.
The solution is to map the bad pixel and to substract them afterhands.
Go to http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page and download the latest firmware for you camera here http://mighty-hoernsche.de/.
It is a supplement to your camera that will open hundreds of possibilities, like making time-lapse recordings, doing your own scripts, shooting RAW,...as well as a feature for removing bad pixels.
All you have to do is to read! Yeah, I know, there are lots of things written :p
More specifically, here is the "how to use badpixel removal" explanation.

The is a very small blue dot on my Canon xti screen


It can be regarded as normal, yes. All LCD screens will have a percentage of dead pixels, and no manufacturer will guarantee you get a dead-pixel screen on their products.

As you say it does not affect your photos and you can be assured it is not something that is going to get worse - it is a tiny manufacturing defect that is all, but within what they call acceptable limits.

If the camera is brand new you could always take it back and ask for another one, but they are within their rights (I believe) to say no for a single dead pixel.

Optio S4 Pixel problem


that is a stuck pixel that never changes - always full on - and causes a clump of adjacent pixels to do the same. Exchange it if you can.
