    Is there any possible way images viewed on an LCD monitor can be 'stored' in the pixels and then recovered?

    I returned a monitor that I had been using for a few days because it had stuck pixels. This is more of a security concern but I thought it would fit in the hardware section.

    Thanks for the help!

    You are fine..nothing to worry about..A pixel doesn't store anything.
    pixel memory refers to a color or image being viewed a long time..and then the pixels may not perform 100 percent true for a short time after the prolonged image or color is not longer being viewed..
    An example is a web page with a bright dark color...when you go to another page after ...the page is a bit funny for a short spell
