Sony A7 red pixel screen and viewfinder, not in resulting images

Hi Guys,

Got an A7 2 weeks ago. Love it except today when pottering around snapping away with it, it seems to have developed a stuck/hot/dead (?) pixel.

I am relatively new to this so excuse me if I describe something in a daft way.

Picture attached. So, in auto focus mode, with the lens cap on, towards the right hand side of the autofocus center square in the screen display AND viewfinder, there is a red pixel. When I zoom in on manual focus magnified assist it turns white. Indeed, toggling to MF turns it white. It is not focus peaking. It is there all the time.

When I take a picture, there is no dead/stuck/hot pixel in the image. Further, there is no bad pixel when displaying the menus or reviewing images.

Anyone got any ideas? should I take it back for a replacement?

Thanks in advance and apologies for the rubbish shot of the problem.



pixel in the image.

It is doing my head in seeing this red dot there.
