Dark Spots on screen

Hi, we have a Magnavox HD LCD, having cleaned the screen with only soap and water, we have huge black spots. These seem to be getting larger. Has the screen been damaged or is there a solution to be had?

Thank you

Black spots on LCD - if these affect the picture, then it's an impurity, although LCD TVs don't require degaussing the same way a set with a tube does. It's all electronically controlled via the inverter board and backlighting. I'd say it's an inverter/backlighting issue - which will require a service centre to replace it; it cannot be repaired at component level.

I might be missing something here, did you use white as you font color? Or, is there simply no answer here? As I understand a solution is a possible "fix" to a problem, I see nothing which resembles that here.

Growing Black Spots on Insignia LCD Flat Screen


Hi,

Black dots/spots on an LCD panel display indicates either a dead pixel or a stuck pixel. Alternately, if you press lightly on the black spots and they go bigger/darker, then in some instances, it could be that the frame holding the display has been slightly warped when too strong a pressure was applied when it was being cleaned. Should this be the case then corrective measure would be to disassemble and flatten whatever area was dented. Some have reported success with the use of a suction cup. Perhaps this, this or this might be interest you.

If the unit is still under warranty, please try discussing your concern with your dealer. Though a few small spots are an acceptable norm. Alternately and if the warranty has lapsed, there are companies online that offer LCD replacement kits or will replace/fix your LCD and it would cost you less than the cost of a new screen or TV.

Other than the above, am afraid that your options are rather limited.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My SAMSUNG DLP HLT5675SX TV seems to develop little black spots all over the screen and after a while these black spots become bright white spots. In fact if a non-used Input is selected and the screen is...


It is the chip that controls the millions of mirrors inside the tv. If they are black, they are stuck closed. If they are white, they are stuck open. I JUST had the same the same thing happen with mine. I bought it 3yr and 2 months ago and I had an extended warranty on it for 3 years. Well, needless to say, it was out of warranty and I was pissed. The store I bought it from suggested I call Samsung. Which, I did. They asked for the model number and told me that my model (hlt5675sx) was one of the ones that is covered becasue they had a problem with the chip. Within 2 weeks, my tv was fixed by a repairman who came to my house. It works perfectly, now and it didn't cost me a penny. Good luck.

Sounds like the optical engine is bad.It is a very common problem and for a while Sony covered the repair with a warranty extension.If you call customer support they may cover it.

My tv screen got wet and now there are black


try a hair dryer first back and forth on hot (don't melt it), DLP screens cost about $200-$400 to buy I work for a service center and have replaced them before. alot of screws around the cabinet, if you take it apart to clean it try using a damp rag (with water) or monitor cleaning kit.
