There are a few causes that may lead to a dead pixel. First of all, it might be the case of a stuck pixel, and not a dead one. Sometimes third-party applications cause dead pixels on the screen. The last and worst case is when physical or liquid damage is causing the dead pixel issue.

How to fix dead pixels on Samsung Galaxy devices:
