Does anyone know if there is a way to fix stuck pixels that are bright white on the EagleEye camera sensor?
This is a now six year old HDX system, and there's no support contract on the system as far as I know.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is from a very old document but since your system is older it may work.
On an HDX codec running 1.0.2 or higher with a “Dead Pixel” on the camera image, the following steps will clear that pixel from the camera image.
NOTE: This is the most critical step as there cannot be any light at all entering the camera image
You should see a JVC EXECUTED OKAY….. response indicating a valid command has been executed.
the cameras memory. Power cycling the system should show no bad pixels on the screen.
(EDIT: Deleted previous reply. I see that you mention the changes are written to the camera directly, so the fixes should follow the camera if it is moved to a different codec.)
I understand that if any light gets on the camera sensor, this procedure will consider that light to be an error and it may blot/interpolate the whole illuminated region out, resulting in unintended "blinding" of the camera.
If such a screwup occurs, will restarting the codec and repeating the procedure in total darkness recover the pixels accidentally marked dead? Or is this a one-way, one-shot procedure and mistakes are not recoverable and permanent?
(I'm trying to determine the potential risk of irreversible damage, vs needing to buy a $3000+ replacement because of "Ooops!")
If it's a one-shot, can't go back procedure, I suppose I'd do multiple blackout layers to be extra careful. Cardboard over lens, black vinyl electrical tape around the edges, plus a black cloth bag, plus a dark windowless room...
Followup to a four year old thread. I made a Youtube video of running the repair process on an HDX 7000..
