Has anybody had SANYO SERVICE fix a dead pixel?

If so, how much did it cost you?

My SANYO VPC-CG6 -- purchased in February 2008 -- now exhibits two dead pixels, sadly.

sometimes pressing....very lightly on those pixles fixes the issue but i dont recommend this. also, turn on the camera and move it around wildly..not crazy like. but the light kinda forces the pixles to activate. the software used to activate the crystals takes up to 12 hours from what i been reading long ago but I don't expect you to do this for 12 hours.. There are softwares out there that do this kind of things for computer monitors. I figure you can just take it out in sunlight and have the light shoot the crystals forcing them to light up.

here is an example. of such things

so take it outside.

another example. I bought a 1200 lcd high definition monitor. It had 4 dead pixles. Of course I dont recommend this but I was about to return the thing because it costed 1200 dollars. Before I took it back, i lightly pressed on the pixles and it came alive.

SANYO SERVICE advises me it "would cost as much as a new camera" if I were to send my VPC-CG6 in for repair.

This is the last SANYO product I'll ever buy.

It's been six months since you bought it. I never checked, but how long is the warranty valid for?
