rats   :/

Have you tried any of the remedies to remove the pixel ?

( supposedly, there is a technique to massage it out somehow... )

14" got three dead black pixel. One of them is on middle and noticeable on word processor which it's annoying than others.  two of them are like half dead pixel, not centered.

edit: 
I found out it was laptop power adapter caused noise random green pixel when I plugged it. i think it was power management chip on board. I tried diff many image OS. same results. now my pinebook got another 4th dead green pixel last hour. I stopped using it and opened ticket support.

Hello,

I have a few dead Pixels but nothing serious. what bothers me more is a white "dot" on the lower half on my screen about 2mm big and  its not pure white, more like an anomaly in Production maybe.

I don't want to ship my Pinebook back because of this. Screen works fine and dandy, as does the whole Pinebook except for a few quirks but totally usable.

^ are you sure it's the screen itself, or maybe something on the screen that can be removed?

@dahni,

I am sure. i can't get a good Photo (it looks worse IRL) but you can see it underneath the "X Close" Button.
As i said, its no solid color, more milky-kinda-way.

yes, i can see it.
wow, you took a really good picture of it.
around 10x10px? that's of course a lot more than one dead pixel (i myself have 3, but onlly for certain colors. i don't notice them at all. i just hope you can live with yours).

it still could be a mechanical flaw (maybe the clear plastic covering the actual LEDs), instead of electronic, but of course it's moot to discuss it since one cannot fix that anyhow.

yes around 10px diameter, i can live with it.
I believe if you bent or poke a screen slightly you would get a similar spot.

I also have around 4 dead pixels on my screen, no biggie Tongue

14in No screen issues.  My experience with the Pinebook has been overall good.  All of  the minor Issues have been resolved  from forum posts and members offering advice.
