    increasing dead pixels on a laptop

    Does anyone know of a way to INCREASE the amount of dead pixels on a laptop lcd screen. We have 1 dead pixel (black dot) as opposed to a stuck pixel. We need another 3 i beleive before it will be repaired.

    ha ha, no sorry. I'm not sure deliberately breaking your screen is the way to go here!

    You could try dropping it a few times

    I think they already have lol

    (sorry couldn't resist it)

    The reason they will not repair it with 1 dead pixel is it is not broken!

    The amount of dead pixels allowed is set out in the snappingly titled ISO 13406-2
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_13406-2

    These are only guidelines, to see how each Manufacturer has set the limit
