You have a stuck sub pixel. There are some videos or DVD's that will flash random color patterns that "supposedly" will help fix stuck sub pixels. I've read where someone suggested taking a sharp pencil, plaving a soft tissue over the pencil point, and softly poke the sub pixel to get it unstick. I've never tried these so don't know if they will work for you.

Usually not but in some cases gently massageing the dot(tv turned on or off try both) with your finger may work (dont push too hard)

or put on a channel with static and try

your chances are slim though this is usually a defect in the lcd technology and most manufactures only warranty it for 5-7 stuck pixels

SOURCE: MY HD TV has a pixel out

The only way to get rid of the red dot is to replace the screen portion of the TV. I hope it's under warranty because it won't be cheap.

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.

SOURCE: green/ red pixels on screen. tv making annoying

If the unit has not previously had the PSU or Y-SUS boards replaced prior to this issue. Then it sounds like the voltages are off on one of those two boards. There is a process for checking those voltages and trying to adjust them. If those boards were recently replaced I would say the tech did not check voltage accuracy. But if it just happened out of no where go with the Y-SUS board as the problem. I say that because the unit powers on.

There is a red dot near the center of my Vizio tv screen, what is it?


if just a single tiny dot it is a bad or defective pixel in the front panel-usually there from first time the unit is powered up but from a distance may not be noticed--almost never gets worse or increases in size. Unless set is under warranty do not worry about is as a Panel(entire front screen unit) usually costs more to replace then the entire TV.

I have a red dot on a Coby TF-TV2001. What can I do to repair this?


If you mean you have a pixel that is stuck on and is always red, there's nothing you can do. The only cure is to replace the display. LCD displays sometimes will have a pixel (sometimes several pixels) that doesn't work properly. The manufacturers know this, and as long the display falls within their specifications for what's acceptable, they don't see anything wrong. These specs include the total number of bad pixels, the number of bad pixels that can be clustered together, and where they can be on the display. If you have just one or only a few bad spots, they won't do anything for you. If other problems develop, such as a whole row or column goes bad or a section of the display fails, then you can see about having them fix it if the warranty is still in effect.

Dots on screen


The snowy dots and dots are typically from a poor signal going into the TV.

If there are colored pixels that stay lit all the time (like a red pixel and never goes away) and for any input, that’s called a stuck pixel.

A stuck pixel may be caused by a bad Y-Sustain, Y-drives, Z-sustain, and or a bad plasma panel.

Good Luck.

Theres a black dot on the top right side wat can i do to fix it.


Is this a LCD and is it a very small dot ? If the answer is yes to both then it is a dead pixel (a white dot would be a shorted pixel). Most LCD makers wont do anything about this unless a certain number of pixels are bad. The only way to fix this is to replace the whole panel and that will probably cost more then a new tv.

Pixel damage


Those small pixels are now damaged not much u can do with it. Some people say you can press on the screen the pixels affected and possiblilty get them to make contact and light back up ( I honestly highly doubt it) If u can live with and not very distracting keep watching it. But if you want to order a replacement, more than likely it will cost more than the TV did when u bought it. If its still under warranty get it replaced if possible.
