Dark circle at bottom of lcd toshiba 32" tv after water on front

Children desided to use tv as target practice ,the result was 3 dark semicircles at the bottom of screen, Biggest battle now is even though the tv is only 3 yrs old and in excellent working condition before the incident the insurance companys tv repair guy is saying this can not cause this problem and has now frustratingly put fault down to component failure .Is there any explanation how a sealed LCD unit can be effected in this way . Thanks

If they used it as taget practice, then the dark semicircles at the bottom of screen is most likely a crack in the screen, the screen would need to be replaced. not worth the fix. the only other time i see circles on the screen is if the screen has failed

SOURCE: lcd covered in water,semi circles at bottom of screen

could be pressure damage from objects at it, hard to say, usually the glass would have spider cracks around each presure spots, but LCD is soft so the pressure damage explains what happened.
If the spots are near the bottom the liquid may have crept upward from the edge , try a hair dryer on a spot and see if it changes indicating liquid is still in there.

My sharp model lc-20b9u-sm has a dark circle on screen


Without seeing the dark cycle myself it is difficult to guess what. I only can think of something hit the screen (ball?) or perhaps someone bumped into the screen?
If the bump was minor, it could become lesser.
Perhaps you should ask a technician to look, or take a picture from the screen, one when switched on and one switched off, but close to where the dark circle is and take the pictures to a tech.

Two dark circles about 3 inches in diameter appeared on the bottom of my 3 year old toshiba regza and every time I turn it on the dark circles are getting bigger


I assume this is an LCD set. It probably uses fluorescent tubes to shine through the LCD panel from behind. Possibly you have a tube going bad, but it would be an unusual pattern. I fear the panel itself is failing.

Try pressing very gently on one of the circles with your fingertips. If this "improves" brightness and contrast, the panel is coming apart. This is not repairable except by replacement.

If you see no effect on brightness, or if the bottom area flickers or has a pinkish tint when you first turn on the set, it's a bad tube. This is a replaceable item, but requires a great deal of soldering expertise and considerable disassembly work.

How to change resolution on a Toshiba LCD TV from 480i to better?


Can't solve this problem, because I have the same one! I can say that adjusting some of the fine picture contrrols, like brightness, contrast, color etc help a little. This TV is supposed to go 720 and as high as 1080 I thought?..........

I have a Toshiba 32WLT66 that is 3 and a half years old, it has developed 'shadows' on the screen that can be seen particularly when the screen is dark. Any ideas.


It sounds like you have bad inverters on your tv. Those parts are usually under $200 if they are even still available. Call a loca tv shop to further diagnose the problem.

Dark spots on LCD screen


I hate to say it but what this is is contamination under the actual LCD glass. This propblem starts during the manufacturing process and can rear its ugly head over time or after running at high temperatures for long periods of time. It can also appear as dark 'tiger' stripes. There is nothing that can be done to repair this. If you have an extended warranty, the mfg should exchange the panel for you. If your warranty is up, take photos and contact Toshiba online and try to get them to cover this regardless. This is a mfg defect.

If they are visable when the set is off then I would have to say yes there is moisture damage to the LCD panel itself. If visable only when turned on then you have a faulty LCD panel.
