The cost of the screen, and the tools needed to make it work with your current TV would be more expensive than it would be buying another TV. Go find the gamer that caused the damage and get them to buy you a new TV.

Over past couple of months the tv has gotten 2 red spots in the lower right hand corner of screen about an inch in diameter, and recently a green spot in center top third of screen that is about 2 inches...

Unfortunately your light engine(also know as optic block) may need to be replaced. If your tv is out of warranty, it will probably cost around $1000 to fix. There is a slim possibility that the optics lens could have dust on it and a tech could clean it for much less than that. This is a very common problem in any dlp tv and they are all expensive to fix. I've replaced several of them at our shop, but about half of the customers won't have the tv fixed and will get a new one. Good luck!

Tried to wipe off a small spot w some furniture polish on a t-shirt and now it is a large spot maybe from some residue. How can I best clean it without messing anything up?

Um, sorry to say. you may have damaged the unit. Panasonic plasma televisions have a coating on the glass front to reduce infra red emissions and reduce reflections.The only thing you should clean them with is a damp cloth (water only).
go to the local electronic shop and get a special cloth for cleaning flat panel displays and try that. if it doesn't come off with that, then it will need the front safety glass replaced.

I have a giant blue blob in the middle of my screen. I just replaced the bulb and its still there. What is the problem? why didnt it go away when i got a new bulb?

The bulb isn't the problem. This is a HUGE manufacturer defect. Infact this problem was so bad that sony stopped making RP tv's all together. There was a class action law suit to force sony to fix this problem as it was a know defect. The action is now closed tho. If you still want to try and fix this ol' guy. You need to replace the optics block as a whole ($500+) The blue blob is caused by the refraction lenses comming delaminated from heat. There's no way to buy just the small lense without shilling out for the whole shebang. Do yourself a favor and see if you can sell it for parts and put the money toward a new (samsung) lcd.

Red spots all over screen

 After downloading their driver update, it fixed the problem along with a few other issues.
You said SPOTS....not pixels.

Spots the size of a quarter are generally DUST that has gotten into the Light Engine and it's blocking the light off of the LCD panel.....

You need a TV Tech to Safely open up the unit and blow the dust off the optical path......the guy has got to have BIG 'Nads to do that, Because SOME units should just have the Optical Engine replaced, instead of opening them up to introduce MORE dust into a sealed engine.....

DON'T do this yourself, and remember THAT Big-Nad Tech is TRYING to save you money so you DON'T have to buy a NEW light engine anyways.....It's a Last-Ditch effort before spending $800 to $1000 for a Light Engine.....
