Red spot on LCD

\015 When the background on my laptop is dark, one can notice a tiny red spot on the screen. All I need to know is as follows: \015\012\015\0121) Technically what's a red spot?\015\0122) How does a red spot occure? \015\0123) Is a red spot a manufacturing defect? \015\0124) When there is a red spot on the LCD. Do we require the LCD to be replaced immidiately?\015\012I bought a brand new "Advent 9215" 2 weeks ago and i already have a small red spot visible only on dark. Does anyone know what these spots are and why they appear?\015

Answers :

\015\0121) That red spot means that a pixel is stuck, actually it's very common on LCDs.\015\012
\015\0122 and 3) It usually occurs for a manufacturing issue.\015\012
\015\0124) The most of the time it doesn't mean that the whole screen is going to fail, but in my case I would take advantage of the warranty if the laptop is brand new and the warranty is still there.\015\012
\015\012Good Luck!!!\015\012
