Can dead pixels grow on a moniter? I just got my 19 inch moniter and it has one little dead pixel, its not that great of concern to me... yet. Its just annoying. So can they grow? If they can I definitely going to exchange the moniter for another one. Also, if they can't grow, would you still return it? I am still debating if I should...

Most LCD manufacturers will only replacea monitor when it has 5 or more dead pixels. If it has not been very long( a couple of weeks maybe)You might be able to return it where you bought it. Even if you might lose a good deal on a on-sale monitor. I had a 17" monitor that had 2 dead pixels(near the middle) that drove me crazy. When i took the monitor back to the store as soon as i said the monitor had bad pixels they would not replace it. I ended up taking it to another store and told them i did'nt like the monitor and they refunded my money. I then went back to the store i bought the monitor from originally and bought a better monitor.

Yes...return it asap. If the monitor has 1 dead pixel that usually means more will die fairly soon, but like was said above, most companies won't replace it until 5 or more are dead. Why keep a monitor that's defective when you still have the option to return it?
