A Dead Pixel is a Pixel that is permanently unable to emit light as it should. Typically, it will appear as permanent black dot.
A Stuck Pixel is a pixel that is stuck constantly emitting one, two or all of the three Sub-Pixel colors ( red, green and blue.) that form a Pixel. If all the colors are stuck on, the Stuck Pixel appears white and is often called a "Hot Pixel". Usually, just one of the three colors will be stuck on resulting in a tiny red, green or blue dot.
Many LCD computer monitors have dead pixels. They is a not uncommon problem in LCD Monitors as LCD manufacturers are permitted to ship monitors that contain some defects. Stuck Pixels can effect LCD Computer Monitors, TFT TVs, and game consoles such as the Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) or the Nintendo GameBoy Advance (GBA) and Nintendo DS.
If you have bought, or are planning to buy a new or second hand notebook or LCD monitor, you may well want to check that you are in fact getting all the Pixels you pay for. It is unlikely that the current owner of the notebook or LCD Monitor you are about to purchase will allow you to install any extra software on their machine.

You might want to bookmark it on del.icio.us so you can find it again when you out looking at equipment.

Stuck Pixels are known to start working again over time. This has encouraged the "Flashing Video" technique of continuously flashing a random color at each pixel to simulate long tern usage. This technique has also been reported to work, and is the technique used by The Quick 'n' Easy Stuck Pixel Exerciser.
