Dark spot in bottom right corner of screen

I am experiencing a dark spot in the bottom right corner of the screen. To me, it looks like a shadow possibly? could there be something obstructing the projected light? I have looked in at the lens and the mirror and it all looks fine. At most it is a 2 inch radius in the corner. very annoying. any help would be great!

I would check for dust particles before I attempted any type of repair on the unit.

Dust particles will appear as dark spots that are larger than the size of an individual pixel. It must first be determined if the particle(s) are on the LCD panels or the screen.

Dark bottom half of screen and dark patch in corner

Thanks for the picture - that's a big help.
It looks you have the dreaded light tunnel collapse common to all LG1.gif DLP TV's. Inside the light engine there is a square tube made up of four mirrors. These mirrors deform and crack with the heat of the lamp. They fall down over the light aperture and cause a shadow of varying degrees. It is fixable now at a realistic price ( used to have to replace engine) as LG have made the parts available. It would take a competent tech around three hours to complete or if you are technically minded you could do it yourself. I hope this helps.
Hope Ya Fix It!
