Vizio model vp50 HDTV20A screen is dim everything works fine however te screen is dim and looks like there is a menu burnt into the background how do I fix this?

Sorry to say, but is sounds as if the TV has been heavily abused.

The menu burn can't be undone. All you can do is age the other parts of the screen to catch up. But that presumes that there's enough life left in the phosphor display to do that. It sounds like there isn't. Sorry, but from what you wrote I think this TV is past salvaging.

I have a Panasonic pt-44Lcx65 tv and it has this blue snowflake or blue star looking stuff all over the screen area and now within the last 2 weeks or so it developed this yellow or green large circle area...

Is the tv new? On which input is set your tv? Change some cables they are connected to your tv (like the HDMI) and see if you can get a clear image.

First there was a burning smell, then the picture was very dim.. Now no picture at all, just multi colored vertical lines, with a small spot that has a web like look to it. Does this sound repairable? or...

This is more than likely your screen controller board that has gone faulty, if the lines cover the screen vertically and are very thin and rainbow kind of coulored then i would say 98% this is the faulty board, Remove the back from your tv and look for a little board (rectangular in shape) that connects to your screen. (Middle top)
Get the part number of the board and Google or Ebay for a replacement.
Hope this helps

Bravia hdtv lcd momentary dim

It sounds like the power supply may be going. The back lights on a flat screen works the same as a flourescent light fixture. Flourescent lights have a ballast that powers on the bulbs. Flat screen tv's have capacitors on the power supply that when they charge power on the back lights of the tv. When you see the tv go dim it is actually the back lights that are dimming. This is usually from a faulty capacitor on the power supply not charging to its full potential. If you can open the tv and find the power supply look for any capacitors that are bugling at the top. These are most likely the culprits. A good cap tester is always handy to have although they are expensive ($100) it usually isn't cost effective to have it around just for rare occassions like this. You can remove the caps and take them to Radio Shack and they should be more than glad to test them for you. Before you do any of this though, look in your owners manual and see if there is a setting to where the tv does not use as much power. Maybe something like that is happening. The age of your tv can determine this too. If your tv is a few years old or burned for 20,000 to 50,000 hours the caps could very well be bad. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Blue tints w/ tini blue dots

if you see blue pixel type groups of squares or dots you may have a burnt light engine and this is common in many LCD rear projection sets; a blue screen may mean the engine became burnt--LCD rear projection sets of this kind have an optical enginge--with red,green,blue prizims--sometimes they get burned by the lamp---a photo would tell me or most techs what the problem is---the cost of a replacement engine is very expensive--some models with this problem are covered by Sony even if the set is no longer in warrant
