Question about Philips 42MF531D 42 in. LCD Television
The TV model is an LG50 1080 37' brand new. I had this problem, took the set back to the retailer thinking I had a dead pixel/defective unit, and the 2nd TV has the exact same problem at what looks like the same location on the screen: left side, center vertically, 1/3 of the way in from the edge.
I call it a star because it's a white dot on a dark background. The sales guy said it's definitely NOT the TV but maybe the cable box (Time Warner Cable) or possible the CO AX line has junk on it? Said to try S-Video cable and/or get a new cable box

call philips to get this srviced under warranty. this repair might take a few weeks because the failure could essentially be any one of several parts. first thing to try is the ssb, then the logic board and lvds cable. if none of these work then you need a new panel

If it was just a vertical black line, i could definitely solve your problem. However, i would still perform the following fix if i was you. It worked for me on my gateway plasma. Go to the following link and read carefully and follow closely!

I had same problem....Its fixed now working great....had 2 blown capacitors.Cost me two bucks and about an hour to fix.Look at the capacitors on the main power supply they should be flat..

internal breaker, hopefully that xbox is plugged into a 3prong ac outlet. unplug the tv from electricity for a half hour and that circuit breaker inside should auto reset.
