    I've discovered two or three spots on the IPS lcd of my X220, that are brighter than the rest of the screen.

    They don't show up at all against a black background, and are most apparent on a white background, but also noticeable on a non-white non-black solid background. They're irregular in shape, but brighter toward the center, and about a few millimeters in diameter.

    Running a "fix bad pixel" by rotating through all colors app for eight hours didn't fix them.

    How'd this happen, and is there anything I can do to fix it? Did I damage some coating on the display?

    I have the same white spot, thankfully just one though. It doesn't really bother me, I don't feel it's worth the hassle of getting it fixed :/

    You're more relaxed than me. The white spots on my LCD are bringing out my latent OCD.

    Nothing much you yourself can do to fix the problem. No, you did not damage the coating or anything. The situation reflects the low (uneven) quality of the X220 IPS display. There have been all sorts of quirks since the X220 was released.

    I use one, and it has not been a totally satisfactory experience. To keep myself calm, I follow my spouse's advice: ignoring is bliss. :p
