Bring it back!

You just can't stop looking at it. Right? It is like a pulsion that comes from deep down inside, something that you cannot control, even though it is actually quite small (really, it is just a dot). Most people, however, don't even notice it on their computers and they go ahead with their lives with no further issues. But you are different, now that you know it is in there, eventually, it is everything that you will be able to see within that big screen of yours: that tragically-dead pixel.

But you shouldn't go crazy about it just yet. There are some great minds out there, and some of those geniuses are kinda into a philanthropic's mood. That way, just like within the game you always play they can revive your fallen hero or like in your favorite show the protagonist was magically brought back to life, in this case, your dead, stuck or hot pixels will be defibrillated with flashing colors until they shine once more with this magic friend called just PixelHealer. The idea behind this is to use the already accepted concept that flashing RGB colors over a dead or stuck pixel might, in certain occasions, revive it.

Moreover, you don't even need to have any kind of prior knowledge for allowing this mojo to do it's charms, you will not even have to install it for that matter unless you want to do it. In a few words, managing the tool could not be simpler nor more direct and efficient, and to wrap the presentation up, it's compatible with many versions of Windows, from Windows 10 back to Windows 7.

Within the emergency room

Once you download PixelHealer's, it will open a tiny colored window with the command to “Start Flashing.” The only thing that you should do is to cover the dead, stuck or hot pixel area with the window just opened, and then run the command. Easy enough for you?

That way the surgery will immediately began and the electric colors will start doing some ancient magic over the injured screen (Beware epileptics, for real). The intervention will be on for about half an hour to an hour, that is when you should get back to your screen to check the pixel again.

You might want to try this procedure a few times if it does not work on the first try, as you are actually trying to resuscitate it, essentially trying to shock the pixel back to life with all of the power of the tool. And we won't be lying to you, it's sort of a desperate move that may or may not work, and usually it tends to be of more use to treat stuck pixel dead-unresponsive one.

Surgery's steps: in a few words

  • First step: You should detect the broken pixel using some free tools like InjuredPixels (portable app) or just checking it up for yourself.  to check your screen or tablet for dead, stuck or hot pixels.
  • Second step: You start the surgery by running the PixelHealer, covering the dead pixel with the colored window and Start Flashing it with no shame.
  • Final Step: You let the program work for you for a while and then you check to see if the dead pixel has been revived. If not, you might want to try it once again.

Post-op

So, you might be wondering what is the verdict after seeing the whole process? From the start it looked like a pretty effective and money-saving solution, and, in the end, it complies with those expectations. I mean, it is a very user-friendly app that can be operated by user with no knowledge at all about this kind of things. And, even though the success rate is not 100%, you if you are in a dire situation, what do you have to lose anyway?

In conclusion, don't have to be afraid of trying new things, at least not in this case. Let's be honest, your other choices would be living until the end with that dead pixel around eating your brain from the inside, to expend some big bucks in repairs or just changing the whole display. What else is there to say?
