    Blue dots on the screen

  • Anonymous Aug 08, 2008

    I have a PS3 and a 480i TV. After playing GTA4 for a while on the PS3, the game stopped responding and now I have little blue dots all over the screen whenever I start up my PS3. GTA4 doesn't work, but other games do. Anyway, thought I'd post this here in case others come here thinking this is the same issue as mine.

    Also, if you already paid to have the problem fixed you can fill out a claim form and get reimbursed. Claim info is on the same webpage I included in my last post.

If blue dots are present in same location all of the time The panel could be defective.
If TV is still under warranty contact Sony.

Can a blue dot on a tv screen get worse or stay the same.


One little blue dot is not enough to warranty the television. If you read all the documents on the set, it will tell you that some imperfections in the display are allowed. The good news is that it wont get any worse

I have a 2005, 42" toshiba LCD model 42DPC85 that when we turn it on everything is good except the whole screen is black but imediatly the colors dot by dot start making the black disappear, it only took...


You need a new DLP chip. The chip has little mirrors that are black on one side and white on the other side. When the chip wears out , your screen will turn white one dot at a time or black one dot at a time or they may just all stick shut at once. Since your screen is black, all your mirrors are closed. You can buy the chip from shopjimmy.com and they have a video of how to replace the chip so you can do it yourself. It takes about 1 1/2 hours. The chip is about $160. To have this service done for you is about $200. Do it yourself and save the money. Your tv will be just like new again. Just make sure the chip is in perfectly level or when you turn your tv back on, your picture will be slanted. you won't notice it on the picture itself but words on the screen or scrolling messages and the menu will be slanted.

Blue dots on my lcdtv


Sometimes the voltage can be set to high by the factory. Throughout time, blue dots will appear. You will have to remove the back cover off the tv, find the "voltage Screws (they are labeled) and turn down (left) JUST A Notch. Have seen this done many times.

Pray that the panel isn't blown out or bad projector tubes. They are expensive.

Blue dots and screen flicker are VERY common on the newer LCD and Plasmas

Also, if you have a pixel setting on your TV (not sure if that one has it) Try setting it to
480p.

Plasma tv has little red dots in the black


This problem (known as sparkles) can be cured by adjusting the ramp control on the Y-Sustain board. If this does not cure the dots then there is a software remedy for the control board which an LG repair centre could fix. Failing that a replacement board is required. The orbitor & whitewash are like screen savers to help to prevent a screen burn from a permanently displayed image.
