White spot on screen

My TV has been great until today when I noticed a small white spot on my screen. How can I fix this?

    Are you sure this will work on a DLP flat screen?

  • Stivo1975 Jan 14, 2008

    I appreciate all your help but I think I'm whipping a dead horse here. The TV is out of warranty. It has the "dead pixel" on all inputs. DVD, Cable, Video games, etc. Someone said get a new screen? How much is that? Maybe I'll just watch the TV with the little white dot on it. Oh well.

Sounds like you are describing stuck/dead pixel.

There is no fix, it is a Pixel gone out in display panel, good chance it is just stuck and will right itself but sadly sometimes they dont and the only fix is to replace the entire display panel
Manufactures warrant such defects different depending on amount of dead pixels on screen is considered faulty, ie 3 pixels grouped or 5 separate ones .

    The only possibility I can see for a projection tv to have a white spot on its screen are



    Light entering back of screen, and being repflected on to screen



    It could be due to electrical interference, from internal or nearby sources



    Outside light source ie window/lamp reflection being seen on screen surface.

    DLP technology explained...





    DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology utilizes a small digital micromirror device (DMD) to tilt micromirrors less than the size of a human hair in width toward or away from a white lamp inside the DLP television. This process creates a light or dark pixel on the face of the projection screen, depending on how much light is reflected by the mirror. Each mirror can turn on or off several thousands of times per second, so this technology can reproduce 1024 shades of gray. There are four main components in the system: the DMD chip, the color wheel, the light source, and the optics. Light from the lamp passes through a color wheel filter and into the DMD chip, which will switch its mirrors on or off in relation to the color reflecting off them, producing an image.

    Whether spread across a flat-panel screen or placed in the heart of a projector, all LCDs are pretty much the same. A matrix of thin-film transistors (TFTs) supplies voltage to liquid-crystal-filled cells sandwiched between two sheets of glass. When hit with an electrical charge, the crystals untwist to an exact degree to filter white light generated by a lamp behind the screen (for flat-panel TVs) or one shining through a small LCD chip (for projection TVs). LCD monitors reproduce colors through a process of subtraction: They block out particular color wavelengths from the spectrum of white light until they're left with just the right color. And, it's the intensity of light permitted to pass through this liquid-crystal matrix that enables LCD televisions to display images chock-full of colors—or gradations of them.

I have a 46'' RCA LCD TV With Dark Spot covering about 30% of screen


it is ultra hard to fix broken LCD sectors unless you have a micro-shop intrusion tool. The fastest and most direct way to fix this is to purchase another LCD screen, which will cost about half if not more than the original purchase.

White sparkly spots on screen


Dynex is a brand from BB which is very very poor for parts. It does have a problem, I would return it for a refund and look for a name brand. If I can be of any other help in your search for another one, please let me know.

This problem was probably there before, but you only noticed with the new "Brighter" bulb.

This TV will require replacement of the LCD Prism unit.

This Prism blocks and allows colors so that the 3 LCD images may be mixed to produce the final image you see on the screen. When this becomes damaged or defective, it leaks colors (light). This Color Leakage apears as spots on the screens.

Where you see the spots is where the specific spot on the prism that is leaking light, the specific color that is leaking also.

This parts cost alone is normally $500 to $1000 dollars but is usually replaced under warranty. If out of warranty, I suggest living with it or selling it if out of warranty. Turn down the Brightness and it will not be as noticeable. I am sure you only see this with bright images.....like white backgrounds and such

Good luck.....
