Question about Westinghouse Televison & Video
Hey I recently got a Westing house DWM55F1Y1 which seemed great for a long time then i noticed what i thought was a dead pixel when a bright image came up on it. Upon closer inspection i noticed that there are about 8 and they are patterned. They also flare out. Ive been trying to find out exactly what this is but cant find another example of it happening any where. Any idea what it might be? The link is a picture of the screen (hope the link works i dont typically post things like this) [IMG]http://i59.tinypic.com/29mu3hu.jpg[/IMG]
It must be really hard to get all the pixels in a large screen to be working. I've seen many with a very small number of pixels dead or stuck at one color

Ok, I have some news on this that I know you will not like, but the whole point of this site is to try and help you fix the problem, or at least, try and point you in the right direction.
I have done some extensive searching on this problem over the last month, as I have also had a friend with a similar problem that you are describing. There is a manufacturer's fault on the main power board, this has been recognised by Gateway, but as it happens inconsistantly (it may happen after a few months or a few years), they are not prepared to recall the product.
Obviously this doesn't help us as consumers that buy their products. The blue screen that you describe happens with alot of visual hardware inc. graphics cards that affects the whole market, and has now become affectionately known as The Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD).
If you are one of the lucky one's, and it is still under the manufacturer's warranty, get it sent back asap, and ask for a replacement to a similar model. If not, the only thing you can do is get it repaired or get a new/2nd-hand one.
Like I said, I'm sorry this isn't the news you wanted, but I didn't think it was fair for you to hang on.
