I have a dot on my monitor that I am trying to get diagnosed. You cannot see it when the monitor is bright and colored, but black screen it looks to me like a bubble, almost clear looking. It may be a bad pixel, and the dot doesnt bother me a ton but my curiosity is getting to me. I do have pictures of it, although they are not very good but maybe someone here can recognize what it is for sure.

I tried that flashing software that may fix stuck pixels, i did that for almost 3 hours but it is still there. I also posted on another forum but they just said if it bothers me than return it. Assuming I don't want to return it, please look at the bad pictures and let me know what you think.

Hi, and welcome to TSG.

I had a similar spot show up on my LCD monitor a while ago. It turned out to be a deep scratch in the top layer of the LCD panel. I suspect one of my cats at the time may have done it.

If it is a scratch it should be visible with the monitor turned off. Don't know of any method to fix it other than replacing the LCD panel.
