HOW DO I GET A TECH TO MY HOME TO FIX IT??
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

without seeing a picture I can guess that you may have a shorted green crt or the drive going to it has changed and you may need to turn down the g2 control for the green. If the tube is shorted or bad see what type of warrantee you have on the crts as some sets have two to 5 years. Good Luck

SOURCE: Red Dots on My Plasma.
Did you get this problem resoslved? I had the same issue a few months ago. I tech came by and took my TV to the shop, a few days later he said it was fixed as they needed to make some adjustments.....The TV has been fine up until a week or so ago and now the red dots have appeared again. Was wondering what happened to yours.

This could be several things. It could be the main board 3850-0042-0150 or the plasma controller board 6871QCH083A.
Depending on what you actually see on the screen it may as well be bad Y sustain board (although less likely).
Unless someone has seen that particular issue in that particular model (or other that share the same deffective component) it will be anyone's guess which is the exact module. They all can be causing what you describe.
Since TV shuts itself in one minute I'm leaning towards the main board.
I'm afraid you'd have to either experiment or bring it to a service center that will either have such a TV and can try or will experiment on your behalf. Just make sure you do not pay for boards they experiment with. I know some of the other TV service shops in our area (and without a doubt elsewhere too) do that.
A TV service center (just as anyone with regular contacts with eBay) can resell incorrectly ordered part and end up losing $10-$20 on it which , if split between customer and technician, I think is completely fair. Just make sure you don't end up paying for a board that was ordered and turned up not the one in fault.
