Dead Pixel

I think the VX9000 has a dead pixel in the upper right hand corner which is only visible in dark conditions. How do I get this fix and how much does this cost? The VX9K uses the same CCD as VX1000. Better yet, how would I mask it out?

No one has gotten a dead pixel repaired? Ball park do you guys have an idea, I'm debating whether or not it is worth fixing or replacing with either a VX1000 or maybe a VX2K.

It is a very expensive replacement. The optical block on a 3-chip camera will be over $1,000, I'd guess. I've never had one replaced.

I have a DSR-300 that has the same problem in max gain. But in real life it never causes a problem. I ignore it.

The dead pixel only seem to appear in dark or low light shooting, I guess it can be ignored, because many times I have to look very hard to find it. I guess I'll ignore it until I find some business to replace the cam or whichever. :)
