    I had been noticing a white pixel (stuck pixel?) against some dark backgrounds in recent shots. I went back through the Library and it first seemed to appear about a month ago. Is there a way to fix this without sending the camera in for repair or individually fixing in post? Thanks for any suggestions.

    There's no "pixel refresh" setting on the LX5 unlike some of the Lumix m4/3 cameras.
    Try setting the date to "MAY" then switch on/off just in case there's a hot pixel mapping routine built into the firmware.

    (My DSLRs do an automatic mapping routine every month so I just wondered if Panasonic might have done something similar with the LX5)

    Thanks Dennis. I gave it a try, but the white pixel is still there.
