Check if Your LCD Monitor or Laptop Have Dead, Hot or Stuck Pixels

Dead pixels on LCD monitors isn’t uncommon. It is expect to have some degree of dead pixels (hot, dead or stuck pixels) on most monitors and that may happen either during manufacturing or while handling. However, if the amount of dead pixels is large, the screen is considered defective. Here is a simple method to check an LCD monitor or a laptop for dead pixels.


InjuredPixels is a simple application that can be used to test a new LCD monitor before purchasing, or an already purchased monitor during the warranty period (as you may get a replacement according to the manufacturer's dead pixel policy) for dead pixels.

LCD dead pixel means pixel that are not able to display the correct color. It may look like a tiny black spot or any other color that does not correspond to what the actual image should look like.

InjuredPixels fills the entire screen with a primary or custom color, allowing you to inspect the screen for pixels that do not match the selected color.


After running the application, just click or use the arrow keys to cycle through colors or right-click to get the menu with the main commands.

 InjuredPixels runs on Windows 8, 7, Vista, or XP and no installation is required. You can download the HTA Edition (can be run by Internet Explorer as a normal Windows program) or the .NET Edition ( Windows executable) from developer’s website for free.
