It sounds like the red CRT is shorted and the dots are phosphor burns from the set shutting down too fast without blanking the picture. In most cases if it is a crt that is bad and you have more than one tube that has phosphor burns it is reommended to replace all three CRTs other wise you will have a color imbalance.
Even if the set is less than 5 years old, the cost would be too much to invest being that the newer LCD Projections are comming down in price.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Tv turns on red and then turns off.

It sounds like you have a shorted red CRT and it caused phoshor burns on all three CRTs because the blanking circuit could not blank the picture fast enough at time of shut down.
It can be repaired but all three CRTs must be replaced. Cost of doing this is too much for the age of the set. I would invest instead in a LCD projection or LCD flat panel.
Hope this helps,

Does emachines n214 has a webcam


In short, yes, your laptop should have a built-in webcam. I looked at the specifications sheet on Tom Hardware Hardware News Tests and Reviews for your laptop, and the link is just for your own reference.

The easiest way to tell is to look at the top-center of your laptop display, on the plastic frame, and see if there's a smooth black circle only a little bit smaller than a dime-sized dot.

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.

Green spot on the middle of screen.


If the spot is perfectly round then most likely you have phosphur burn on 2 of the CRT's. If it uneven then maybe it is a spider who has made his home in there (not uncommon as it is warm and dry which is what they like).As far as cleaning goes, don't use standard glass cleaner as it will damage the screen. Use warm water and a soft towel, or purchase glass and plastic cleaner which is ususally a foam type spray.
