When pixels on your computer screen will get stuck, you may see a black spot. You could try to get rid of a black spot on a computer display screen by lightly rubbing on it. Or, use a software application that's designed to remove spots from a display screen. Software such as Jscreen Fix, Pixel Fixer and Dead Pixel Buddy are designed to locate and fix broken pixels on a  computer screen.     

Instructions

Step 1:

Use a soft lint-free cloth to clean your LCD computer screen. Then, use a stylus pen with a rounded end on it. Place a small cloth directly over the stuck pixel. Gently rub the pixel with the stylus pen until it disappears. Be careful not to apply too pressure, because you may puncture the LCD screen.     

Step 2:

Download a pixel fixer software application on your computer from the Internet. Launch the application and let the program run. If you prefer to use an online web-based service like “JScreen Fix,” go to the website and click the “Launch” button.

Step 3:

Make sure your computer is using the latest version of Java. To get the latest version, go to “Java.com.”  The service will turn all of the pixels on your computer screen on and off. And, nd rapidly cycle the color of the screen approximately 60 times per second.     

Step 4:

Click on the “Locate” button after the “JScreen Fix” dialog box appears. The display screen on your computer will turn black. You will need to move the window around to find the stuck pixel on the screen.    

Step 5:

Click on the “Fix” button and let the web-based service run and perform a diagnostic test. The service will try to find and revive any broken pixels on your LCD computer screen.  

Tips:

If you're unable to remove a broken pixel from your LCD computer screen, the pixel may be faulty or dead. Run the pixel fixer software again and this time, let it run for several hours. You can also contact the LCD manufacturer, if your computer screen has 4 or more broken pixels that cannot be revived. In some cases, the LCD manufacturer may replace your computer screen if it is still under warranty and meets the requirements for a replacement.
