Just change the date 30 days and the camera will remap the sensor and voila...no more hot pixel.

Just noticed a hot pixel on my new A57 too. Changed the date of the camera ahead by 1 month, turned it off and... no hot pixel anymore! Thank you so much!

I was about to send the camera back due to this issue. How common are hot pixels, even in new cameras? Is having a dead pixel in a new camera a bad omen for that many more of these developing in the future?
