Black specs on the LCD screen

I have a brand new Toshiba 52HL167 Regaza, 2 days old that is showing black dots in the lower left center of the screen, i realize that some dots may be present due to the nature of the LCd technology, But these are very prominent, and almost in a perfect circle, around 3 to 4 inches wide.

What is this and can it be repaired or does the TV have to be replaced, it is under warranty.

I don't propose to be an expert in the television arena, but I might be able to provide some feedback. Speakers or other electronics or components that have magnets in them and might be located near can cause tvs or computer screens to go funny. Relocate any components near the TV to a greater distance.

Since you indicate that it's almost a perfect circle. I'm just checking to see that you don't have a speaker or something magnetic near that location.

    After checking your surrounding environment for objects interfering, you definitely want to make use of the warranty situation if it's possible.

This will most likely be down to your screen controller board, Take the back of the tv and look towards the top middle, You will see your screen cable go into a rectangular board this is sometimes covered by a metal plate, remove this and check Ebay or Google for a replacement, there will be a part number on the board
Hope this helps?

I have a 2 year old toshiba 42lx177 and I just noticed a vertical line of very small lighted dots running up the center of the screen. You can just make it out while watching a program but it is readily...


Its a failing LCD driver, not a lot you can do about it unfortunately, eventually it will get worse. Usually lines or dots are a bad driver board, but sometimes its also a bad flex cable on the LCD. Being 2 years old you probably don't have warranty, but if you do have extended warranty file a claim now, its only going to get worse, and there is no quick or easy fix.

Vertical red line on Toshiba REGZA 52HL167 tv.


I have this same problem with my 52 inch toshiba regza , The repair shop has said the cost of repair is as much as it is to replace the TV. I am past the one year warranty, but less than 2 year ownership, so Toshiba won't fix the known issue. Solution is don't buy a Toshiba

Yes i have a black dot on my new 2008 toshiba notebook.Do you know how to fix it.


If it is just one pixel that is black, you cannot do anything about it. It is what we call a "dead pixel". The best thing to do is to send it back in to the manufacturer and get a free replacement.

It's not the answer you wanted to hear, but again, there is nothing you can do about it.

Toshiba 52HL167 52" HD LCD


I have similar problem. Sometimes it will show only a blank screen. Just unplug the AC cord, wait a few seconds and plug the AC cord back in. This will reset the processor and the picture is back. It happens once a month. Not a big issue to call warranty service.

Black dots and lines


Call Toshiba Warranty Dept. @ 1-800-268-3404. Before your Warranty runs out. You have one year from date of purchase. They replaced mine, it was only 2 months old.
