Stuck pixel-fixing software v. 1.0 (23/3/2015) Readme/What's new
UnStuck.EXE - One way to fix a stuck pixel on a LCD monitor Usage: UNSTUCK.EXE [[<x> <y>] [z]] x : optional, column number, range 1 - width of the screen in characters y : optional, row number, range 1 - height of the screen in characters z : optional, number of seconds before it stops, range 1 - 3600 Examples: UNSTUCK.EXE Use the mouse to select the stuck pixel(s). The number of seconds is the default of 20 seconds. UNSTUCK.EXE 300 Use the mouse to select the stuck pixel(s). The number of seconds is 300 or 5 minutes. UNSTUCK.EXE 1 1 20 The position is column 1, row 1 (top left corner of the screen), and the number of seconds is 20. How this should work: According to it's a method to fix stuck pixels on a LCD monitor. A pixel can be dead or stuck. A stuck pixel usually shows a color. Dead pixels are often black or white. First check if the warranty is expired. The hardware methods include a specific device, applying pressure or heat. This is a pixel-fixing software method. Stuck pixels can often be re-energized by rapidly turning them on and off. Pixels will be turned on and off rapidly, so the CPU load may be 100%. You can press <Ctrl-C> to stop it. I cannot mention a number of seconds. But 5 minutes is perhaps quite long. On the other hand flashing videos may last an hour. The method is untested, because I don't have stuck pixels. Installation: Stuck pixels should be quite rare, but an INSTALL.CMD is included. Full screen is recommended, because that may torture less pixels. It will try to switch to 80x43 to reduce the number of pixels per character.  local copy
