Default Stuck or dead pixel?

Please Login to Remove!

On my third Storm, I noticed two white specks on the screen. It's only visible in very dark colors like black or dark purple, and it's more noticeable on movies. I don't want to return it a third time.

Question:

Since the speck doesn't show on red, blue, or white, can it be that it's just "stuck?" If so, then what? Anything?

It doesn't bother me enough to return it.

Yea its stuck, dead pixels are black. Find a flashing color site to try and fix it.

The more I think about it, the more I think it's dust. I don't know if this is good or bad since, if it is dust: how the heck do you take it out? At least there's hope with stuck pixels. Here are the pictures. Notice it only shows up on the black background. They're the white specs.
