Its not very big, only about 2mm round(ish), TV was taken apart, thought it might have been a speck of dust/dirt/bug on the back of the screen(or on the mirror, or bulb) but no luck, seems to be coming from right inside the light engine.

Re: black spot on screen
And yes, you are right. It is the light engine causing it. And unfortunatley you need to have your light engine replaced also. I've replaced several of them for that same reason. So I know what I'm talking about.

The spot may be from debris inside the chamber of the TV box. A bug, dust speck, or other material can attach to the inside screen or on a color tube inside of the unit. Do not touch the inside of the Front Screen as it has a special coating and you could damage the screen permanently. Avoid washing with water or sprays that can enter the frame of the screen. Use a cloth with cleaner applied to it and wipe clean, then dry with a soft rag or paper towel.
Yes there is a way. The easiest for you would be to remove the back top of the TV. That will give acess to opt lense and mirror. But first check the Lamp and inspect the lense that the Lamp into. It does not take a lot to cause your concern. Use super soft cloth and wipe surfaces.
I looked back and see your talking about a crt type. My bad. A small yellow spot is most likely dirt or a bug in the blue optics. Tale the front off the set and with the tv on look down into the lenses. If you see a blob of dirt or a bug this is your trouble. Be careful not to move the blue tube but take the lens assembly off and clean the surfaces. There are four screw that hold just the lens assembly. The other screws shouldn't be touched. It will need alignment otherwise.
The gray spots are caused by dust on your lens, very easy to clean.
Power down the TV.
If you open the right side access panel (right side as you are looking at the front of the TV) you can see it in the middle, it's not very big. Using a scratch/lint free cloth, gently wipe off the lens or use a vacuum to **** up the dust being careful not to actually touch the lens.
Replace the access panel and enjoy your spot free screen.
I fixed it!!!! If you can open one of the sides (on the JVC there is a little door with a screw), then you can clean the projector lense in the middle on the bottom. It kind of looks like a big light bulb. It seems there is just dust on the glass that is projected onto the screen. We had a big gray spot and cleaned it with a damp glass cloth and Ouila! It disappeared. I scored MAJOR brownie points with my husband for this one! He wanted to replace the TV!
The dust is on the lcd located inside the optical block. It requires quite an extensive tear down and if you're not at the minimum a CET don't attempt this one yourself... Most shops won't even do this cleaning in the home and any repuatble shop that does it has a clean room they will put it in to do the work..
A single speck of dust no larger than 25 microns on the lcd can shadow in the picture. To give you some idea how small that is a blood cell is 7 microns wide...
I had a similar problem and brought it in to a technician for a quote of $860 to fix. The problem - speck of dust on the optics. If it weren't under warranty I would take it apart and blow off the dust myself.
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.
