It can also happen if the mask is damaged.  My Sony Trinitron has a
damaged mask causing one tiny "pixel" to be black, though not always.  I
think it is actually just part of one pixel that is damaged (3 column
RBG elements per pixel).

I like CRTs better, but I already have issues with room and heat, so my
next screen will probably be LCD.  My Sony 400PS is 8 years old now, and
needs to be replaced soon.
