    HAVE TRIED THE TV WITHOUT ANYTHING ELSE CONNECTED TO IT STILL RED DOTS COULD IT BE SOMETHING TO DO WITH VOLTAGE

  • Anonymous Nov 26, 2008

    I have the 50inch version, I have the same problem. It happens on all input sources. It is especially bad with my PC through DVI/HDMI and on the TV using the built in tuner. The problem is less bad with my HDDVD player. What does LG have to say about this? By the way, I'm in the UK (240V supply)

Red dots show up on the black portion of the screen. Any ideas? Thanks, Steve


I had the same red dots in the dark areas and it was driving me nuts. I also have a toshiba 50hp66. Luckily I found out that it's an easy fix. Open up the back of your tv and on the left side you will see two adjustment pots labelled Vsc and Vy. I first marked with a sharpie where the factory defaults were. Then I adjusted down (to the left) the Vy a little and the red spots were gone! My TV looks like new. Hope this helps.

Reset to factory settings


Yes it is the same, it has the same barrel inside as a cross hair only you have a red dot. So just like you said, count the clicks and take it half way. You could do it with a vice, put a target up at 20 or 25 yards, depending on the pistol, lock it in a vice, shoot the gun a few times, and then put the cross hairs, dot, on the group, then you can fine tune from there. Check it out. And the bent barrel rifle, I had to stand on a barrel once to straighten it, actually I was jumping up and down on it, but I got it straight.

Hello, why does my plasma tv have thousands of red and green flashing dots all over the dark parts of screen after it has been on for roughly half an hour? if i turn tv off for a while then turn back on...


I had a similar problem but mine was just red specks that showed up in dark scenes. I opened up my plasma and found the adjustment pots that are labeled Vsc, Vy. I then marked the factory default with a sharpie first. Then I lowered the Vy a little and my red specks disappeared. Now my tv looks awsome again like it was new.

Small red dot in center of 53" Hitachi projection tv


hi, not good news it`s probably a burn in on your red crt (picture tube), tv has to have back completely removed, which means top and bottom covers, (carefull with the top cover it`s heavier than u think, has mirror bolted to inside), turn on tv just long enough to light up all 3 crt`s to identify the red one, turn set off & look into red lens,(may need flashlight) if you see any black specks in center of tube it`s burnt and has to be replaced, be advised u will see gnats, ect. inside but your looking for specific speck, if no visible burn mark have tv man come out, otherwise it`s very pricey, hope this helps and not crt, video-tek

Black color displayed as green


If the owner's manual covers it, I would do a factory reset on it. I would also test the PC and video card by trying another monitor to be sure. I would check the pins for ones which are bent or broken, and check the cable for pinched spots. After that, I would say the monitor has a bad signal / video board in it.
