    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.

Blue dots on black images


I can tell you that I had my plasma screen replaced in the 4th year. The tech told me that the replacement panel was much more reliable. You may be looking at replacing the plasma panel...(which may be more expensive than replacing the whole unit??).

What does it mean by dead cells?


I assume this is related to your LCD monitor.
I think you mean dead pixels. The LCD monitor has tiny pixel elements, one for each red, blue, green color and each one of these colored pixels are turnes on by a transistor. When a transistor fails then the colored pixel it controls does not light up. This is a dead pixel and it shows up as a tiny black dot.
If the screen displays a blue screen, a dead blue pixel will appear as a tiny black dot in the blue screen.
You normally would not notice a few dead pixels unless they are grouped together.

Tiny dots about 1 inch apart down the side of page


Again, this was actually HP Laserjet 3800. Problem solved by chatting with HP, and them having me go into a diagnosis mode that disabled cartridge check. Then, I removed the cyan cartridge, the dots went away. They then had me put the black into the cyan slot, and not dots appeared. I had backup toner on hand, swapped in a new cyan and magenta, and all was good. HP agreed to replace the cartridges.

Large dot in the middle of the projected display


there is a burned-in spot on the polerizer light filter for the blue lcd. it makes sure the light is blue coming through, that's why it is black on a blue screen, and yellow when the red and green are the only light showing through. it needs to be replaced. pat # PFiLW0213CEZZ.

Big black dot on main screen


well...unfortunately that cant be fixed. you can try a software flash, which would just require that u take it to a vzw direct store, and back up ur memory because it could be erased. otherwise, ur phone has a 1 year warranty, take it to a store or call tech support to get a replacement.

Blue out of focus; casting blue "glow"


Try changing the coolant in the blue tube. Contaminated coolant will give a halo look to the affected tube and you will experience difficulty focusing that color.Phillips/magnavox's blue is the tube most often affected with the contaminated coolant issues.
