Avoid Hot, Dead or Stuck Pixels: Injuredpixels For Windows Helps Detect Defective Pixel on LCD Monitors

Written By Sam on 16 October 2010

If you have a defective pixel on your LCD monitor, how would you detect one to report it to the manufacturer? Injuredpixels is one application for Windows that allows you to detect dead or defective pixels on your LCD. There are three ways in which a pixel can be defective. It can be hot, dead or stuck. This means that such a pixel does not display the correct color or output correctly or it does not illuminate. It causes an annoying black, white or colored spot on the screen.

How the InjuredPixels application works

  • It fills the entire screen with a primary or custom color so that you can inspect the areas where the color is not consistent. That is, you find a black, white or colored spot that does not match the primary color.
  • A very easy to use program which does not even require you to install it to your system, you can test your screen using the application online. However, if you do wish to download it, you can do so by directly visiting the developer’s website: http://www.hellogramming.com/injuredpixels/

Injuredpixels runs on:

  • Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP with Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0 or above.
  • The main executable program file for the application runs on both 32 – bit and 62 – bit versions of Windows.

It’s a highly advantageous application as you can test the monitor of a system before purchasing it and save yourself the trouble of getting a defective piece.
