Will stuck pixels "resolve" themselves overtime?

I bought a used M32Q used,but in great condition, BUT it has three stuck pixels.

 

What is your experience? Some claim with use they may disappear, some say you need to work them. 

 

I am contemplating whether or not I should keep the display, as it was very cheap, or sell it again with the mention of those pixels...

From what I have heard it depends. Sometimes they fix themselves sometimes they don't. Also usually a few dead or stuck pixels isn't actually super uncommon and some warranties won't cover if it's only a few pixels. That being said I would make sure you are OK with having those stuck pixels or not and make a decision based off of that. If you can't stand the stuck pixels then don't but if they don't bother you then keep the monitor.

I had a few stuck pixels on an AOC monitor a few years back. This site actually worked and brought them back: JScreenFix - Pixel Repair

How long did you run the program? 

I tried this already for like 20 minutes or so...

I let it run overnight. The next morning the pixels were fixed. There is no guarantee that it works though.

yeah. There are two that are for some reason less noticable...I could live with those. But one is a bit brighter and therfore more annoying...I am hoping to fix it with one of these flicker programs

Sure. Well I will try overnight then. 
Thanks for the info. There is some weird stuff online when it comes to stuck pixels...some people take hair dryers etc. which I really do not feel comfortable with.

I wouldn't recommend that. If you take a hairdryer to your monitor it's just as likely you're gonna destroy more of it. But this pixel saver is possibly an easy fix without any risks.

It has gotten....smaller? If that makes sense. 

I will keep it running, but seems like there is something happening...

So the overnight thing didn't help. I mean it has gotten smaller in the beginning after I ran the program and rubbed it with a microfiber cloth, but there has been no additional improvement.

 

I will try to make it a bit better.

 

 

The most annoying thing is that the seller (private) claimed there were no faulty pixels when he sent it out, which I highly doubt but legally I have very little chance of getting anything out of this.

Sadly that's the risk when buying 2nd hand and not in person. I hope you can at least get a decent return if you decide to sell it.
