    So I've been using it for about a month now, just after the guarantee coverage of every dead pixel on the screen is over. This morning one tiny black pixel shows up on the right side of my screen... [​IMG], however, it was always black until reddish colors appear and it disappears. It's a Samsung 226bw, anyone know a way to fix it...?

    Are you sure its black? If its black or white, then its not fixable. If its a solid color, then you could try to fix it, but there aren't any guarantees.

    It's 100% black, I've confirmed with several other people who looked at the screen. However, it goes away whenever there is a color behind it with a shade of red.

    You could try a LCD pixel tester, that will attempt to resurrect it. You can grab one here.

    Or, I'm pretty sure, having owned a few Samsung TFTs, that they have a Zero Dead Pixel policy. As long as you would have the receipt or registered it for warranty, you should be able to grab a replacement easy.
