Default Strange marks on screen - removable?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,

I recently notced strange marks on the screen of my Curve. They are tiny dots, and they really look like dust, just as if I got dust on my screen.

When I rub my finger over them, I feel absolutely nothing.. no indents or physical scratches - SO, I have a "hunch" that this IS actually dust - but, is it possible that dust has somehow collected UNDER the screen? Because when I move the curve around in the light, it almost looks as if the tiny dots are casting a shadow?

Is there any way that I can clean this? If anyone thinks that this is a possibility that somehow dust has collected on the inside of the screen, how can I fix it?

Thanks!

Sounds like dust under the screen. Discussed here a lot. Search and you will find what people are doing.

Could be a pixel failure. Is it small enough to be one. Same thing happens on a PC LCD screen. They usually go white or black but can be all color
