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.

I need to see a picture. Hope you can post one. This is just too wild.

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 (https://getfirebug.com/)

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).

That looks just like it (size and length)

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

I assume they squelch and stick. ;)

inside your eyeball (that had to hurt) or on your eye?

It was outside my eye, but somehow managed to get under the conjunctiva. I went to two different eye hospitals, but they couldn't get it out. The doctors told me I had to just wait and let it die, which it did, eventually.
