Bubble-like spots on lcd

I recently noticed that I have two adjacent spots on the lcd of my acer travelmate 4152. on light colors they appear slightly lighter, and when I shake the screen back and forth they wobble in a way that makes them look 3D, like bubbles. Otherwise just two rounds spots of discoloration.

Any idea what I'm looking at?

thanks

    no warranty and its not something that warrants a replacement. I don't think "dead spot" applies, its more like distorted.

    is this something that gets worse?

Your Licquid Crystal Display appears to have gone bad... much like a dead pixel in a TV, you get a dead spot on the display of your lcd that looks like a bubbe.

You need to have the screen replaced or you will have to live with the bubbles. If the PC is still under warranty I'd send it in for repair. You may be able to pick up an inexpensive replacement on eBay, but make sure you are careful if you replace the screen yourself.

Hi this is prince here from Bangladesh. i have a laptop that is acer travel mate 420. a few days ago its display is not working properly. some times it turn into various color. so what can i do?


Hi Prince, has your laptop experienced a squeeze or fall recently? I have a few suggestions. Plug another monitor into the VGA or DVI connection on your laptop. See if you are getting the same problem. If everything is working fine on the external monitor you would have eliminated the drivers being the problem. I suggest getting the LCD display changed. If your laptop is under warranty, you can get this done for free. However, if it is not under warranty you may have to replace it either yourself or take it to a local Acer specialist. If you chose to install the new display yourself, there are handy tutorials on removing and installing the screen on the Acer website. I have noticed that many times the Acer TravelMate Notebooks have experienced display issues. I hope you get your problem resolved soon.

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.

I have a sony kf-42sx3oou, i have just had the lamp replaced, since replacing it a few blue spots appeared in the top right corner but today a yellow line has appeared on bottom left hand corner, could you...


This problem was probably there before, but you only noticed with the new "Brighter" bulb.

This TV will require replacement of the LCD Prism unit.

This Prism blocks and allows colors so that the 3 LCD images may be mixed to produce the final image you see on the screen. When this becomes damaged or defective, it leaks colors (light). This Color Leakage apears as spots on the screens.

Where you see the spots is where the specific spot on the prism that is leaking light, the specific color that is leaking also.

This parts cost alone is normally $500 to $1000 dollars but is usually replaced under warranty. If out of warranty, I suggest living with it or selling it if out of warranty. Turn down the Brightness and it will not be as noticeable. I am sure you only see this with bright images.....like white backgrounds and such

Good luck.....

Acer Travelmate LCD screen went dark


The same thing happened on my HP. I ended up buying a LCD screen off ebay. That corrected the problem. New screens cost $150+. You can get one off ebay for half the price.

those are going to be dust spots on the LCD panels internal to the optical engine. i suggest that you take the screen off and take off the panel i nthe middle of the tv with 2 screws in it and there will be an area that has 3 metal fins covering thin orange ribbon cables. the 3 square objects at the end of those ribbon cables will be the LCD panels spray wiht air compressor unitl clean and that should greatly help your problem.

Spots on my display


There's nothing wrong with your camcorder. Cystal-shaped spots, black spots, and bright spots of light (red, green, or blue) can appear on the LCD monitor for a variety of reasons. These spots are not being recorded on your tape. But if these are distracting your videotaping, consider taking a slightly different shooting angle and the spots should go away.
