SOURCE: Little red dots

The driver board is going bad it sounds like and if you do not call up and get it fixed under warranty, as it should still be under a warranty, then its going to be a nice hefty repair bill. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread

I have been having the exact same problem. TV on for 30 min with terrible static, then all of a sudden it is perfect again. I've also inherited a bit of a humming noise from the tv as well. It was suggested to me in this forum to have a tech come and adjust the v_scan and v_set settings down a few mhZ. No idea what this means, but I assume it's a power setting and the tech will be able to take care of this. I will post my results when i have the tech in.

SOURCE: Green Pixel or dots issue on Samsung LN-4051D

That's a flaw in the driver/timing circuits, but it could also be something simple like a ruptured ribbon cable or poor connection during manufacturing. Simple or not either way the driver/timing circuits need to be serviced by a professional technician.

SOURCE: i have red dots or pixels if u will spreading all

It depends on the size,location and how many dead pixels. If remember less that 5 they won't do nothing about them. Call the warranty people and find out. they will for the location, size of pixel and quantities. Good luck to you.

You need a new DLP chip. The chip has little mirrors that are black on one side and white on the other side. When the chip wears out , your screen will turn white one dot at a time or black one dot at a time or they may just all stick shut at once. Since your screen is black, all your mirrors are closed. You can buy the chip from shopjimmy.com and they have a video of how to replace the chip so you can do it yourself. It takes about 1 1/2 hours. The chip is about $160. To have this service done for you is about $200. Do it yourself and save the money. Your tv will be just like new again. Just make sure the chip is in perfectly level or when you turn your tv back on, your picture will be slanted. you won't notice it on the picture itself but words on the screen or scrolling messages and the menu will be slanted.

First easy thing to try is unplug the TV from the power for about half an hour and try it again. If no luck; Do you get the same effect if you unplug the cable box from the tv completely? what about if you are watching something from another source - DVD player or VHS or PC or similar. Do you get the same? Could you post back a photo of the green dots etc? may help us to diagnose the problem. Do you have a model number for your set - it doesn't seem to have posted? awaiting your info :)

Please check the power outlet. Try changing to a different power outlet. Look for jammed on/off switch on remote or on control panel of TV. If nothing works, better refer it to a qualified service technician.
