How to Fix a Dead Pixel on Laptop Screen Using LCD Repair Programs

It started out as a single dot, but as the day goes by, it started to spread, creating a noticeable blot on your computer screen. It is distracting, not to mention annoying. What’s causing it? And how do you get rid of it?

Well, for starters, the individual pixel on your LCD screen is made up of three diodes. Each of which has different colors: one red, one green, and one blue. If all three of these diodes fail, a permanent block dot will appear. But don’t lose hope just yet because if you are lucky, the problem may be reversed. You can bring the dead pixel back to life using recovery applications. Here’s how:

Access the software.

Open the LCD repair website. You may use Flexcode <> or JScreenFix <>. These websites have been proven to repair defective pixels.


Locate the defective pixel.

If you’re using Flexcode, click the button on the top left corner of the browser-based utility to change the hue of your screen (ex. green, blue, red, white and black). Dead pixels will stand out against any of these background colors. Once you located it, make a mental note of its location

Run the program.

If you’re using Flexcode, click the “Fix My Sccreen” button to begin the running the program. This will display a pattern of rapidly flashing primary colors on your screen. Leave this running for 10 to 15 minutes. The program will just automatically return to its main browser page once done.


If you’re using JScreenFix, click the “Launch JScreenFix” located at the bottom of the page. The action will display a square window with a static and rapidly changing pattern inside. Click and drag the window over the dead pixels and leave the program running for at least 10 minutes. After which, click the “back” arrow and check the dead pixels to see of the problem is gone.

Alternatively, if none of the software was able to fix the problem, massage the dead pixels with a soft object. You can use a pencil eraser for this purpose. Simply, mark the location of the dead pixels, turn off your computer, and then push the pencil eraser against the pixels for at least 10 seconds. Repeat for 15 or more times.
