    According to Barco of Belgium, finding a faulty pixel in your new plasma or LCD television/monitor need not mean having to put up with an annoying picture. The company has discovered a way to make defective pixels "nearly invisible" by tweaking the surrounding heathly ones.

    Plasma, LCD and OLED screens use thousands, or even millions of active picture cells, typically made from three sub-pixels that emit red, green and blue light. If a sub-pixel is faulty (either too light or too dark) the entire cell emits the wrong color.
