    well i notice it the most when watching video on my ps3. i have alot of mp4 video loaded on it.picture is awesome until dark scenes come along.i am using hdmi for connection. i tweaked some picture settings and it helped a little.

  • tkd777 Feb 01, 2008

    yea i was kinda starting to think that might be the problem. would you recommend adjusting any picture settings to help it in any way?

    I have this same problem when watching blue ray movies on the PS3 and I am using the expensive HDMI cables. I have tried adjusting all the picture settings and nothing makes it look and better. Any ideas?

The mp4's could be contributing to the problem. It's the compression you are seeing. It's the same when my Tivo is playing. It's compressed video. It just makes it seem worse when the screen is dark.

I get this too with my Samsung. Are you watching HD content or standard (cable, satellite) tv? If it's the latter, that's why. The lack of quality really shows on analog signals. The shows that I Tivo look horrible a lot of times. Another thing is the connection to the television. If you are using standard RCA connectors, try switching to either component or HDMI.

Hope this helps.

    I would really just mess with the contrast and brightness until you find a happy medium. Sharpness might help, but doubtful.

Hello, why does my plasma tv have thousands of red and green flashing dots all over the dark parts of screen after it has been on for roughly half an hour? if i turn tv off for a while then turn back on...


I had a similar problem but mine was just red specks that showed up in dark scenes. I opened up my plasma and found the adjustment pots that are labeled Vsc, Vy. I then marked the factory default with a sharpie first. Then I lowered the Vy a little and my red specks disappeared. Now my tv looks awsome again like it was new.

Red cirle in the center of my screen durning dark scenes


This sounds like the light engine has gone bad or has dust/dirt in the light tunnel or DMD assembly. The light engine would have to be removed to check for dirt. If the engine is bad it can cost over $800 just for the engine not including shop charge. Unit would need to be taken to a repair shop to find out what is actually causing the problem.

Sorry to tell you but JVC is a well-known un-reliable brand and if it's cheap, probably even worse. U may have screen burn from leaving a games console on while plugged into the tv, even if its not showing the game, it will burn it onto the screen. :(

Try # 2... Green Fog


The green gun in your picture tube is set a little too high. If you are experienced in removing the back cover of TV's,etc., you may try to find the drive and/or bias controls either on the circuit board that plugs on to the neck of the picture tube or mounted on the main circuit board of your TV. These controls are usually labeled. If you can find them, locate the green bias or drive control and back it down a little while watching the picture through a mirror. A slight adjustment may correct your problem.tJIS IS CALLED GRAY SCALE ADJUSTMENT. BE CAREFUL THERE ARE SOME HIGH VOLTAGE CIRCUITS NEARBY. WORK WITH ONE HAND AND USE AN INSULATED TOOL TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS I hope this may help you.AGAIN BE CAREFUL!! Stargazer
