Hi :-)

The round blotch your seeing on the screen is the melting of an acrylic lens inside the light engine. Its a design flaw which unfortunately Infocus will not stand behind. To fix this problem requires opening the light engine and putting an equivalent lens in place. This task is very involved, but this problem is repairable and you need a glass smith to cut the right size lens from the original.

    Yes, this happened after replacing the bulb with a new one (off ebay)
    Did the new bulb do this?

    I have the same problem: big round black spot in the middle of the screen 3 houres after lamp replacement. How did you get the lens out and did you already found a new lens or someone to make one?

  • Iain Searcy Jul 18, 2011

    Nothing you can do but buy a new light unit. I took that out and found the one plastic lens. HUGE design flaw!

Black spot in the middle of the screen looks like it has a burned spot


Yes if it uses 3 picture tubes one is burnt dead center--cover the lens one at a time to see which is causing this--permanent damage caused by a arc.

If a newer set you have a display unit with a dead pixel.

Yes, if the spots are round or teardrop it may be burnt picture tubes.

Easy to confirm this by covering lens of tubes one at a time with set on and see which removes the blotches.

What happened in a lot of these sets is the set arcs and burns a black dot dead center in one or all three of the screens of the picture tubes used--fatal case and permanent.

Having a big yellow spot background in the middle of the picture.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

Black spot in bottom of tv


I just had my caps replaced and after the tech put it back together there was a spot. He tok the screen off and cleaned the mirrors around the bulb and the large mirrors(they were reaaaalllllly dirty. It did brighten up the picture and it looks crisper, oh and the spot was gone.
P.S.. Like nettiser stated. If it's unde warrenty have them do it. If you drop something "you will be pissed" if you don't !

Gray spots on screen on a JVC HDILA model HD 56G 787


The HD-ila sets accumulate a lot of dust in the light engine. The worst offender is the little fold mirror just under the lens. I take my set apart about every 8 months or so to clean all the dust from the light tunnel and all lenses, mirrors, diffusers etc. The picture really regains it's pop when this is done. Unless you are a skilled technician though, I would recommend against attemptimg this procedure as you need to disconnect the individual color lcds. Check with a local service center to get it properly cleaned.

Dark spots on tv


I have the same TV, and I was getting the black spots on my screen as well. It is dust settling on the bottom mirror. Yoiu can call Mitsubishi and spend 150-200 on getting it cleaned, or you can do like I did and take the front panel off and the 10 screws around the edge on the back of the black plastic border around the screen. Then lift up gently and have someone hold the screen for you and gently dust the bottom mirror. I did this by myself, but it would be wise to have 2 people do it.
