Would like to ask the pros here, i recently noticed 2 red pixels appeared at 2 seperate points on my output pictures, is that a problem with the sensor? Anyone here has had a similar problem/situation before? Is there anyways to try to resolve it besides sending for service centre?

It's not a serious problem just that the dots appear on dark backgrounds, and there's no showing of this on my LCD on my D80, but it's irritating. I tried swopping lens and the dots are still there, but i dun think they are dust.

Anyone care to enlighten me? TIA.

Happy new year!
