Flickering green dot on monitor

Update: It seems that the green dot was just a stuck pixel after not opening my pc for day it seems that the stuck pixel was fixed. 

 

PS: I also used JscreenFix and UDPixel not sure though if it had any part on getting it fixed since I ran the app overnight to try and fix the stuck pixel but after I woke up the stuck pixel was still there.

My monitor is an Asus ROG PG248Q I just noticed that there was a flickering green dot on the monitor just today. Is there a possible fix to this? The green dot disappears when I move my mouse onto my 2nd screen but when I move it again onto the PG248Q display it comes back then disappears when I don't move the mouse.

That looks like a dead pixel in my opinion. Unfortunately nothing you can do as manufacturers will say it's just the nature of the technology. The only option is to buy a new monitor.

If it's truly a dead pixel then damn. This monitor is already an RMA replacement and it hasn't been 2months yet. I also noticed it doesn't show up for all the time like when I put my chrome tab on the PG248Q and the background is solid black it doesn't show up but it does show up in my games.

Might be a "hot" pixel then. Stuck to one colour, so not noticed unless content is the opposite colour.

(IIRC I have one on this monitor and one on my last :P )

 

PS, manufacturer might be more forgiving if it is flickering, as that is annoying. So send them a tweet/email/etc.

Any possible fix for this? Or should i just suck it up and just live with it?
