Random white dots on screen

I purchased this EDTV about two years ago and from day one it has little white dots randomly about the screen. I've tried messing with the contrast and such. I see the dots when watching a Satellite feed and DVD. I tried Composite and S-Vide cables of the higtest quality. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks, Jake

Pink dots and yellow blobs appearing on top of picture. Random locations of dots every minute / changing bug more dots randomly on bottom of screen.

May need to readjust voltages to the PDP. be sure to copy the original settings before you adjust any of them as you will need this reference point. If that doesn't help may need X or Y PCB. as last resort the PDP itself may be the fault.

White dots on sumsung plasma tv

This is a problem is usually on your Y sustain board. There are two adjustments for this in which an Oscilloscope is nessesary for the alignment. However, there are two other things that can cause this also. This is beyond your abilities if your not a tech. Sorry for the news, It's not a major repair but should be done by a qualified tech.
