So i've not experienced this before until the other day. I've not seen any hot pixels (red) in any of my images. however, when i have the LENS cap on and set to A MODE, camera usually sets shutter to bulb to compensate. weird thing is anything over 1/8th of a second shows one hot (red) pixel on the rear lcd display, doesn't show on any of my pictures. and doesn't remain when i go above 1/6th of a second with lens cap on in manual mode. anyone else experienced anything similar? Should i be worried about the display developing more of these? would you send it in for service? i'm only really frustrated b/c I bought this used so do not have a genuine warranty with sony. and i'm thinking if I send it in they will want to replace the entire LCD.
