Dead Pixel Syndrome…

Oh dear, it appears one of the cameras in CNN’s new HD set has a dead pixel in it. I haven’t seen it myself yet (haven’t had time to check) and the above screengrab isn’t true HD and therefore can’t show it (it’s supposedly in the area of that red chair behind Ali Velshi), but according to emailers, it’s there. These cameras are expensive so don’t be expecting it to go away any time soon unless they stop using the camera. I’ve been seeing a dead pixel on one of my local newscasts for well over a year now.

Update: An emailer sent in an updated image highlighting the area of the screen where the dead pixel lies, though you still can’t see it really.

    Wow. We had a dead raccoon in the backyard one time, and the city came out and picked it up.

    Dead pixels are the least of CNN’s worries. Dead programming should be a much bigger concern.

    Dead pixels aren’t much fun. (Obscure Dr. Demento reference).

  5. The words “obscure” and “Dr. Demento” are redundant…

    The whole subject seems rather obscure. As does the network.

  7. Move the dead pixel cam around from set to set and make a game of it. Or move it to Larry King’s show and centre the dead spot on his show sign. It’ll liven up the place.

    — make a game of it. —

    Pin the tail on the pixel. Could be better than JK USA.

  9. Pretty sad for CNN when the talk about it on a cable news blog is about a dead pixel.

    Pretty sad for a cable news blog when that’s all we have to talk about. Ainsley’s growing competence is ruining things for everybody.

    I sense a drinking game. CNN’s dead pixel shows up, take a drink…

    But then we’d have to watch CNN..

  13. But then we’d have to watch CNN

    And if you had to watch CNN, you’d prolly want to start drinking again.

    All this pixel-talk is making me thirsty.
