Display technology has evolved significantly over the years, but even in the age of high-end LCD and OLED screens it is still possible for issues to develop over time. And some customers will be disappointed to find that even brand new mobile phones can come with stuck pixels which stick out like a sore thumb and can be very distracting.
The good news is that you do not always need to send your device back if it is under warranty or invest in a replacement display and crack it open with iSesamo tools to carry out repairs. In this post we’ll show you how to fix dead or stuck pixels on phone screens. The following apps are designed to fix pixel issues and work with a range of device types, so here is a quick look at the most reputable solutions on the market at the moment.
What makes this service so impressive is that it runs in a web browser rather than requiring you to install a standalone app, so it can be accessed from most mobile devices, including those running Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android. All you need to do is run the HTML5-powered service for a maximum of 30 minutes and it should unstick any compromised pixels. Its makers claim that this works in about 60 per cent of instances, while users who are not successful on their first attempt are recommended to repeat the process.
Dead Pixel Detect and Fix
This app’s clunky title is its only downside, as it is otherwise a fully featured dead and stuck pixel fixing service for Android devices. It can be downloaded from the Google Play store and lets users pinpoint problem pixels, even if they are hard to see when the screen is displaying normal content. Like JScreenFix, it will then run a 30-minute program to try to jump-start pixels back into normal operation.
If all else fails, you can attempt to repair stuck pixels using a more direct approach, but be aware that this involves putting pressure on to the screen of your device and could result in more damage being caused, so do so at your own risk. Essentially, you need to turn off the screen, wrap a narrow, blunt object in a material which will not cause scratches on its surface and then use it to push against the area in which the problem pixel is located for up to ten seconds at a time. This could help to nudge the pixel back into its correct position and provide on-the-fly, albeit fairly brute-force, repair.
If none of these things works, then the best course of action is to invest in an iSesamo tool to dismantle your handset and remove the display, replacing it with a new unit which does not suffer from the same stuck or dead pixel issues. This is cheaper than having to pay out for a brand new phone, and the work can be carried out by professionals at a surprisingly affordable cost, making repairs far more appealing to most people.
