A Green Blotchy Area about 9 in oval in the upper part of teh screen


Plasma with Burn in within 3 years, I bet. I've seen Week old plasma's with burn in. Plasma technology is not as good as some would make it out to be. Due to the nature of the physics of the device, it is susceptible to something called "Burn-in" When an image of any form is displayed for long periods of time on a Plasma display, they start to literally burn in or wear out that part of the screen faster than a moving picture elsewhere on the screen. ie. If you have a television that is always on one channel and that channel always displays the little logo in the bottom right of the screen (abc, cbs, speed...) that kind of thing, you will eventually actually be able to read that logo even when the plasma tv is turned off. Check your manual or the manufacturer's website for your tv, and somewhere in there, it will refer to a "half-life" of the tv. ie. if your model has a 2000 hr half life, after 2000 hours of viewing, the display can at maximum, put out 1/2 of it's total brightness output. after another 2000 hrs 1/2 again as bright. and eventually it will be so dim that it's unusable. This is a fault with Plasma technology, LCD does not have this issue. CRT used to have this issue, but advances in technology have lowered this risk. So. What you are seeing is remnants of a bright image that was more often shown on that part of the screen than anywhere else on the screen. There is nothing that can be done other than replace the unit (or the screen, but it's easier to change the whole unit). if you've had this unit for 3+ years, you did pretty well. doing the math, if you only use your tv for 2 hours a day, for the 3 years you own it, assuming a 2000 hr half life, you've broken that limit. meaning that you will have parts of your screen that are very likely half as bright as others. Nature of the beast (plasma). This is why they are not as popular as they are advertised. Try an LCD next time.

New Philips Televion dim and flickers


You should return the player because if it is dim and flickering than there is a miss connection in the play. It could also be that your tv is not compatable with that player.

Ln55c650 keeps flashing bright to dim very fast after about 30 minutes of being on if i shut it off for a few minutes it goes away til about 30 minutes the picture never goes away just gets bright and dim...


I had the same issue occur on my ln55c650 (screen flickering, not the actual image but the front lights flashed which was too distracting) and they had to replace the power supply pc-board. Seems some issue with power module in the TV rather than the side panels. Luckily for me, TV was still in warranty.

MacBook Screen Problem


Hi there
If I understand you correctly from start up the screen is dim but does brighten up after time? But now after start up you are getting a flicker how ever a restart solves this.

On the dimming issue. Check your energy saving settings and brightness key is working OK.

The flickering is a bit of a concern.

Just a couple of questions.
Are there any dead spots on the screen? Areas where there are no pixels.
When you tilt the screen forward and backward, does this effect the brightness or flickering?

Screen goes dim under different user


could be an issue of his resolution and refresh rate settings are close to being out of range for the monitor. Try lowering these settings to get better performance.
