    Take the week-old computer back where it came from.

    I know you must be sleepy, but.... "@ week old computer has a dot of red light on screen, seems to be getting bigger". Doesn't give us much to go on. Except that perhaps, maybe, some weirdo has a sniper scope pointed in your direction. My solution to that is RUN! Anyway- here are a couple of simple questions and maybe you could add a bit more insight as well. 1. What kind of computer? Brand, laptop, desktop? 2. What kind of Operating System? Windows xp, Windows Vista, Mac OS, Linux. 3. Can you see your icons on the screen? Do they work when you double click on them? 4. This sounds fixable. I do need more info so I won't go into your graphics card properties with you just yet. Lemme know- Jimzer

One of the pixels in the screen is going bad. You may want to call the manufacter and get warranty work done.

It may be a dead pixel, but being red is quite strange, if its just a week old, then it is still under warranty, take it back to where you bought it from, they should replace your laptop

RCA DLP TV with a red dot in the middle of the screen


Sounds like the color wheel stopped and re-started. It may continue to function for a while, but could fail at any time.

I've also seen on rare occasion, a defect in a lamp produce uneven color rendition, but its far more likely that the culprit is the color wheel.

HDTV is getting blue dots and the right side has turned blue


These issues are problems in the light engine (optics block)
the dots are called "starfield" and the geometric is "roadmap"
replacing the light engine will fix the issue. for awhile, sony was extending the warrany on the engine for these issues only, but that may have expired.

Red, purple and green dot


Its the light engine. Had a tehnician come and look at mine and was told it would have cost over $600 if I didnt have the warranty. Panasonic called 2 weeks later and told me that parts are no longer available for my model and are upgrading me to a 50 inch tv.(from 44 inch)

Red Dots


You can get rid of the red dots by adjusting the V-scan voltage down, it's on the panel sticker inside the unit, you can find the test point on the DC to DC pcb, and the adjustment pot is on the same board, lower it as you watch the screen and only lower it enough to rid the screen of the dots
