This is called diffusion, it is caused when the power supply voltages do not match what the plasma panel requires. Unfortunantly this is not something you should do yourself, high voltage danger and possible damage to the tv if you are not very experienced with this repair. A technician can however read the voltages and adjust them to specifications and this will get rid of the dreaded red dot diffusion. Very common in samsungs but not that expensive of a repair. Hope this helps.

Blue and red arched lines on screen when background dark


Sounds like you are describing retrace lines that could indicate that your CRTs or something in the drive circuits are bad.. Check the resistors on the CRT sockets to see if they are in tolerance. If they are try turning the red and blue screen adjustments down just a little this should take the lines away. You will however be needing service in the not to far future. Turning the screens down should help if the resistors check out. Let me know if you need anything further.
