Here, you will get a quick guide for easy fixing of the Dead Pixels on Android devices. But, before that, here is something for you to get to know what is pixel and a dead pixel. Also, we will cover that how the dead pixel takes place on the display.

What is Pixel?

In a digital language, the Pixel is a smallest addressable and controllable element of a picture you see on display. By adding many of the pixels, a picture will generate on the display. If you see a picture, that means, ultimately you are looking at the number of pixels. Also, a pixel contains mainly three colors which are known as RGB(Red, Green, Red.)

In short, a pixel is a very vital element for the picture.

What is Dead Pixel and How it takes place?

We have discussed that a pixel contains RGB color contents. If the RGB contents get off completely, then you can see the black spot on the picture. That black spot is nothing but the Dead Pixel. In short, if in the picture, the sub-pixels of (RGB) of the pixels turn off, it becomes dead.

Like dead pixel, there is also one similar word, Stuck pixel. Often, many users confuse with this both. However, both this is different than each other. We already know that what is a dead pixel. But, in the stuck pixel, not all the sub-pixels get off, unlike dead pixel. One or Two sub-pixels stop to work, rests are not, which is termed as a stuck pixel. So, we can say that the Stuck pixel is a part of the Dead pixel. Generally, the dead pixels are mostly stuck pixels. In a rare case, you can find the dead pixel in which all three sub-pixels get off.

Generally, the pixel becomes dead due to the transistor which is carrying the current for the pixels. You can also say that it is manufacturer fault. The manufacturer is not able to check every pixel as there are many screens are made at a time. So, if you suffer from the same and want to fix without any risk, then go to the service center.
