PixelHealer can help you try to fix dead pixels by yourself, before running back to the store! You can use it to fix dead, stuck or hot pixels on LCD or TFT screens, on desktop monitors, laptops or tablets.
First of all, use our own free InjuredPixels portable app to check your screen or tablet for dead, stuck or hot pixels. Then, download and run PixelHealer without installation, cover the dead pixel with the colored repair window, and click Start Flashing. PixelHealer uses the already tested concept that flashing RGB colors over a dead or stuck pixel will revive it. So let the repair window run for a while, then check to see if the dead pixel has been fixed or revived. And repeat the process if necessary.
PixelHealer has an intuitive interface and it is very easy to use. Use the mouse or your finger to move or resize the repair window. Open the intuitive Settings window to change the flashing colors, the flashing interval, or to automatically close the app after a certain period of time.
To start and use PixelHealer, no installation is required: simply click the "Download And Run" button from the PixelHealer download page, save the Windows executable program file to a location on your computer and then open or run the file.
PixelHealer will open two windows: the repair window (a small red window), and a larger Settings window, with various settings and information. Use the mouse or your finger to move the red window over the dead pixel, and click the Start Flashing button from the Settings window. PixelHealer uses the already tested concept that flashing RGB colors over a dead or stuck pixel will revive it. So let the repair window run for a while, then check to see if the dead pixel has been fixed or revived. Repeat the process if necessary.
The intuitive PixelHealer Settings window allows you to control the dead pixel repair process.
The Settings window is automatically opened when the program starts. To close it, click the Close Settings button. To reopen it, right-click the flashing repair window, press Escape while the repair window is focused, or click the PixelHealer icon from the Windows taskbar notification area.
