This is a Faulty Screen, it should be covered under warranty. It is on Samsungs.

It is caused by heat build up within the LCD panel, a design flaw.

If you have the "red" blob in the center of the screen or you have "blue" blobs that show up in random areas of the picture then the only repair is to have a technician replace the optical light engine.

Display Issue


Toshiba makes a great laptop but the display video or lcd seem to go bad very quickly I have replaced the lcd in many to solve this problem but be aware a few also had bad video cards (unlikley in your case as the external video is fine) it would seem as the lcd panel has gone bad on yours. the average replacment is around $100.00 to $300.00 depending on where you purchase from.

Growing black blob


Could be dust in the optical engine? There could also be marks on the mirror? You can get a sort of a similar problem in the LG RE44SZ22 when the light tunnel becomes warperd due to heat from the lamp. Best regards, Arpi
