I have a 2005, 42" toshiba LCD model 42DPC85 that when we turn it on everything is good except the whole screen is black but imediatly the colors dot by dot start making the black disappear, it only took...

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 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.

A gree speck on the screen

It's an "open" pixel. It is unable to close to block the light, so it appears as a dot. The color white is made up of red, green and blue. So, a single open pixel will have just a single color. If you have had the TV for just a short time (< 30 days), many retailers will exchange the TV. However, if you have had the TV longer, you should contact the manufacture. The pixel specifications will vary from manufacture to manufacture... but some manufactures have a zero dead pixel specification and they will repair the TV at no cost to you. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Dots all over screen

If you would spray a coarse water mist on the screen, would it create the same effect?

Or, take a toothpick, wet it, then touch the screen with it leaving a small dot of water; if it looks like the other colored dots and the colors shift when you move you head slightly back and forth, what you are seeing is a lens-effect and changing the angle will alter which individual pixel you are seeing causing an apparent change of color.
It sounds as if some kind of overspray, perhaps of an oily aerosol like Pledge or WD-40 has found its way to the screen.

I'm kind of curious about this one, I don't think it is electronic in nature, please post back if you discover something.

Toshiba regza lcd 46x3500

This is what is known as a dead pixel. If you have a standard wide screen lcd monitor it has over 1 million pixels. It is not super un-common for one to go bad. It will either always be dark or in your case always be lit. It is not worth it to repair, and in most cases unless you have multiple dead pixels with in a square inch of screen, it is not covered under warranty either.
Each pixel is individual and the problem will most likely not spread.
