Can stuck pixels go away after time?

My Dad has the I-Inc 28 inch. It had a Red stuck pixel almost in the middle of screen since I got it about 6 months ago. Well today I was using his computer and I noticed its not their anymore, its gone. Do stuck pixels ever become unstuck after time? I've never heard of a pixel stuck or otherwise going away after time, but it looks like it did. Is this possible?

middle of screen means you can RMA it.
If its in the corners, your usually out of luck, unless you have like 5+ dots.

Usually not, sometimes they only show under certain situations,... like a certain colour... say black... when your screen does "white" in that space theres no problem, soon as you need black, you ll see a red dot instead, as a exsample.

Dead pixles means you can RMA it though, esp if its in the middle of the screen.

That's why I didn't see it. On any background other than black its not visible..

Not often. Have a green stuck pixel on the lower right of my screen and tried for some time to get it out. Nothing worked. In the end I just gave up and it doesn't bother me now anyway. It only shows up on black.

I think there are actually programs out there that are supposed to help unstick pixels.

There was a red pixel in the upper left corner of my monitor (2233rz) when it was completely new about 2 months ago, but it started playing nice again.
