    I noticed that i have a single pixel near the middle of my screen which has difficulty becoming FULL black when the screen is black.

    Lets say during a loading screen, it stands out considerably. However, during any kind of gameplay or during XMB,you don't see it.

    Anyone have these weird single pixels?

    I have two in the top left corner of my screen. My XMB is black most of the time (I switch backgrounds a lot) and becomes noticeable then. I think these are what's called "stuck" pixels. There was an app called Unstuck that was created back in the days when user mode was enabled for fw 2.80. It was supposed to fix these pixels. Use Google to find it.

    I have four or five in the bottom corners of the screen. You can only see them when its fully black, anything else and they're just fine. Since its such a minor thing I didnt even bother using that unstuck pixle video thing. I've heard reports that it can make things worse sometimes.
