Black dots on H90 screen

Hi,

My girlfriend got an H90 a few months ago and soon after a black dot appeared on the screen. After a few weeks another one appeared and they both wandered around the screen slowly with every turning on/off.
They have stopped moving now, but remain on the screen. While they dont affect the pictures, it would be nice if they could be removed somehow. As they wandered around, it doesn't seem as if the pixels themselves are damaged.
Here are two example pictures:

Is your camera still covered by warranty? I'd get them to replace the screen.

The problem is that it's from Japan and it would be way too much of a hassle to get it back there and repaired.

Then the only recommendation I could make is to get a new camera, the RZ18 is currently $114 and if you can find any old RS1500 stock out there, it can be had for under $60.

I'm afraid another new camera is currently not in her budget.
As long as the dots don't affect the pictures it's not such a big deal, but I thought there might be an easy solution to remove them and asking never hurts.
