Line of stuck pixels - any DIY solutions?


I’ve had my Sony Bravia 42’’ TV for just over 3 years, and had no problems until this past weekend. The TV has not been moved, and there haven’t been any changes in the TV’s environment. Regardless, I now have a blue line of stuck pixels on the right side of the TV and a weird horizontal line that cycles through different colors. Has anybody had any success getting rid of these kinds of picture defects? I called Sony, and they said to call in a service tech. I was hoping to avoid this, so if anybody has had any success stories, please let me know.


You can “massage” pixels. JScreenFix - Fix stuck pixels is an example.


If it’s a whole line of pixels I don’t think there is an easy fix. That sounds like a problem with the actual panel.
