    Same problem with the powder puff balls on the screen. I think that it is a dust problem, how do I fix it. I have a bigger problem with the tv turning it self on and off at will, there is no rhyme or reason for it,

Well I'm an Engineer not an electronics tech but I was able to tear down my KDF-42WE655 and vacuum out the optical block with my TriStar canister vac. The three LCD projeciton panels were very dusty. I was suprised to see how dusty compared to the yellow, pink and blue spots I saw on the screen. Not an easy task to be sure, but not impossible if you are into taking stuff apart to fix it.

    BTW I started with this excellent write up.
    http://splinke.googlepages.com/sonykdf-5...

    The optical block part is a second persons web page near the bottom of that first page. Here's the link:

    I also vacuumed up a lot of dust from the fans that cool the LCD panels. My set was purchased in 2004 FWIW.

    Hope this helps!

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...

Spots all over screen


We will presume you have a DLP set that uses a lamp of some sort(no brand or model indicated here).

spots or dead pixels are usually a damaged optical light engine--there are ones where more and more appear.

A faint possible reason is dust is inside the optical light engine--seen it a few times but the spots are usually golf ball in size----high pressure air applied to the vents in the engine with set on in a dark room usually clears that up.

My rear projection TV has color spots in the picture, most noticeable on light color picture


What is the make and model of TV. If it is a Panasonic that has different colored spots such as pink, blue etc. Then you need t6o contact Panasonic as this is a memory reset that they have to perform on the LCD driver board. Other brands of LCD projection sets that have spots that appear all over the screen mostly on white back rounds are almost always dust that has settled on the LCD panels. This requires a technician to clean the LCD panels if possible.

LCD projector spots showing up on the screen


there are light filters behind each lcd panel that determine the color of light going through it. because of excessive heat and dust, the filter tends to burn and cause discoloration in the image. if the image is bluish (cyan), the red filter is burning. if it's yellow, the blue is burning. if it's purplish (magenta), the green is burning. the filters will need to be replaced. unfortunately, many companies don't sell individual parts of the optical engine, so the entire engine might need to be replaced.

Couloured spots on screen


Hi
sounds like you have colour impurity problems caused by a magnetic feild being near the Screen. Fist check for any new magnetic feilds nearby. If there have been no new changes, it may also be a faulty PTC device that automatically degausses the tube. When they fail, you will get problems with impurities by way of coloured spots on the screen.
Try disconnecting the set off at the wall for 30 mins, this will initiates the auto degauss process. If all is ok, the spots will be gone. If not, you will need to have someone handy with a soldering iron that is also familiar with TV repair to replace the PTC for you.

Please rate this solution. Happy to answer any other questions you may have. Cheers.

Red spots all over screen


 After downloading their driver update, it fixed the problem along with a few other issues.
You said SPOTS....not pixels.

Spots the size of a quarter are generally DUST that has gotten into the Light Engine and it's blocking the light off of the LCD panel.....

You need a TV Tech to Safely open up the unit and blow the dust off the optical path......the guy has got to have BIG 'Nads to do that, Because SOME units should just have the Optical Engine replaced, instead of opening them up to introduce MORE dust into a sealed engine.....

DON'T do this yourself, and remember THAT Big-Nad Tech is TRYING to save you money so you DON'T have to buy a NEW light engine anyways.....It's a Last-Ditch effort before spending $800 to $1000 for a Light Engine.....

Light purple spots on my screen


Unfortunately, this sounds like a problem with your TV's lamp. They are not cheap to fix. Search Ebay for a new lamp and get someone to install it for you. These Mitsubishis have a design flaw that make the lamps burn out quickly.
One thing that will PREVENT this problem is making sure that the TV's vents are clean.

Spot on photos from a canon 350d


Spots
If you see bright circles or spots on photos taken with flash, and the lens appears to be clean, then this is probably caused by particles (dust, pollen, etc) in the air.

See:
http://home.fujifilm.com/products/digital/shooting/flash.html
http://webpages.charter.net/bbiggers/DCExperiments/html/body_spots_.html 
http://www.fratkin.com/d320l/spots.html

There's also an interesting thread on the CANON DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY FORUM at <http://photography-on-the.net/forum/viewtopic.php?TopicID=2912> 

And an explanation of sorts at <http://www.fujifilmsupport.com/faq/tech/spot/spot.htm> 

I really don't know if a slave flash would help, because I assume the A40 flash would still be operating, but if you could borrow one it might be worth a try. 

Might be a wild goose chase, but you could try changing some small thing, just in case ... 
... like trying a different flash mode - slow synch for example?
... or different picture modes - perhaps snapshot or infinity?
... or changing from AUTO to Program, or from Program to Manual, etc?

Otherwise it's probably a case of waiting for most of the dust to settle, taking more than one photo, or just trying to do without flash whenever possible in that sort of situation ... 

Another suggestion I just came across is to use a Negative Ion Generator - used to purify air by precipitating out the particles. Don't know how well it would work - probably not very well if folk keep moving around - and sounds expensive, so maybe not worth buying one - but if dust is a regular problem, and you just happen to know someone that has one ...

Dark spots on tv


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.
