Re: green dots on screen

Green dots on a LCD screen are burnt out pixels and unfortunately are incurable other than having the TV serviced at a high price. One of the reasons it is a good idea to get a warranty on these types of TVs is primarily due to this very problem....burnt out pixels.

Green shadowing

Sounds to me like the video board is bad. If it covers a good portion of the screen it is likely not the panel itself and rather something to do with the processing.

Why got green dots / image seen on screen?

Those green dots are dead or "tired" pixels. The only thing you can try to fix this, is doing a pixel massage. Grab a pen and put some sort of towel over it and make a circling move over the pixel.

If it won't work the only thing you can do is get used to it that you have a dead pixel. ( i also have one. Very annoing)

Green shadow or static lines(dots) all over screen

Problem sounds like ignition noise. Depending on the condition of applainces and electrical distribtion box (Fused/circuit breakers) on the premises. Could also be entering through outside source. The best way to find out if this actually causing your problem is to take a portable radio and tune around 550mhz on the AM band. If you hear a buzz or crackle tune radio to the loudest hum or buzz, then walk around aiming towards the more signal or louder it gets until you find the source. Hope this helps.
