Block of 2-3 Black Pixels on PMW 320

I was shooting a job two days ago and this is the first time I have seen what looks to be 2 or 3 pixels together that are black fortunately rather than white, in the upper right portion of my 16x9 frame.

Has anyone ever had this and/or knows if it can be fixed without getting into expensive repair? Have to find my manual and see if anything internal addresses stuck pixels.

Thanks

Perform 6 black balances one after the other to initialise the APR function. This should clear any pixel errors. However this function has a limited memory capability, so if you have a lot of dead pixels it will get to the point where they can no longer be mapped out.
