    Most annoying bug (insect) ever

    Somehow there is a bug walking inside of my led screen on top of my pixels and under the plastic cover
    is there a way to get it out of there if it dies inside there
    or get it out of there 1st
    would dead pixel warranty cover that? it covers at least 8 pixels

    That's pretty wild. How is that even possible?

    I don't have any answers, but you might either have to hope the bug crawls out or take the screen out.

    no idea how it got in there, i switched the screen to tv mode to make sure it was not a display error
    then i turned it off and used a flashlight to see it still there and i could not touch the bug
    looks like it came out on its own overnight *please, stay gone*, just hope there are no eggs in there making me end up with a hundred of them in there walking in my screen

    would be impossible without a high end camera (would get eigher a blank screen or a glare or what would look like a speck of dirt if lucky), and a screenshot will not work
    i just hope it does not come back, the only bug i want on my screen is firebug

    I've seen that before with 'thunderbugs', about the only thing you can is turn it off and wait for them to go (and hopefully not die while in there).

    Very interesting. I had one of these things in my eye. So annoying and irritating. It eventually died and disintegrated.
