The solution is very simple to fix paralyzed pixels on an LCD monitor, but what is the question!
Is the pixel paralyzed or dead?
Dead pixels cannot be repaired, paralyzed ones can function correctly or partially again after some time with software or by themselves! Here are a few facts about the phenomenon!
Paralyzed versus dead!
A paralyzed, ergo stuck pixel appears in one of the colors that its three sub-pixels can form, i.e. red, green, or blue. In a dead pixel, all sub-pixels are permanently switched off, making the pixel appear black. The cause could be a defective transistor. In rare cases, however, a black pixel can also get stuck.
So if you see a colored or white pixel, you may be able to fix it. And when you see a black pixel, the odds are slim, but there is still hope.
Unfortunately, you can't fix a dead pixel!
However, you can freeze a fixed pixel. And as I explained above, it's hard to tell the two apart. Either way, there are three general methods you can try:
1. First identify dead or stuck pixels by displaying your monitor in different color palettes.
2. Use a third-party tool to flash a multi-color pixel to fix a stuck or dead pixel.
3. Finally, you can try a manual method in which you rub the stuck-on pixel with a damp cloth or rubber (as found on the back of a pencil).
