hi guys, i've got a SONY 19inch G420 flatscreen monitor which i bought about a bit more than a year.
until yestarday i noticed a black dot which appears on the screen no matter what i am running (and its not a bit of dirt or anything)

Not a dead pixel per se.

It is dirt or debris but inside where you can't get at it.

Bitch at Sony for an RMA. Good luck.

I believe the only way for a crt to get a dead pixel would be for something to block the electron beam from passing through the shadow mask or aperture grille. Maybe knocking it around will unblock it if there's dust or something in the way.
