I have a Lenovo Legion 5 laptop and yesterday I noticed a singular stuck pixel on the screen. I've had the laptop just over two weeks. I ran a test on https://lcdtech.info/en/tests/dead.pixel.htm and the pixel defect is only visible on the white and green screens. On the white screen, it appears as a pink pixel and on the green screen, it appears black (link to both photos below). I have also tried using https://www.jscreenfix.com/fix.html for about 30 minutes to correct it but so far this hasn't worked (perhaps I could run it for even longer, or overnight). I'm not in a rush to go the warranty route for a single pixel so I'm wondering if there's anything more I can try or whether or not this is actually fixable without needing a replacement.

Also, because the photo doesn't show it, the location of the stuck pixel is not in the middle of the whole screen. I would say that it's located roughly in the middle of the bottom left quadrant of the screen.

Contact Lenovo for repair/replacement. If it is new and you have had it two weeks, that is the manufacturer's responsibility.
