I had the same red dots in the dark areas and it was driving me nuts. I also have a toshiba 50hp66. Luckily I found out that it's an easy fix. Open up the back of your tv and on the left side you will see two adjustment pots labelled Vsc and Vy. I first marked with a sharpie where the factory defaults were. Then I adjusted down (to the left) the Vy a little and the red spots were gone! My TV looks like new. Hope this helps.

I HAVE RED DOTS ALL OVER ANY BLACK COLOR OF THE PICTURE


Could be whats known as dead pixels, this is tested be showing up a black or white screen. Microsoft paint or word will do. If an area always has dots then dead pixel. However if it doesn't constantly remain a dot then, some-thing else. Dead pixels come about due to age.
A technician will be able to diagnose your problem by performing white screen test.

MY HD TV has a pixel out


The only way to get rid of the red dot is to replace the screen portion of the TV. I hope it's under warranty because it won't be cheap.

The set has sound and no picture.If you the SSB could be the issue but the tiny red dots on a black screen will need the panle replaced also. There is a way troble shooting can be done to determine if you will need the SSB or the SSB and the panel.

Yeah, I had mine checked for the same thing. The "blue" - There's only three - red yellow blue- portion of your tube died. Not repairable. Last I checked it costs at least $1,000 for a new 40 inch tube. Good luck. Mine went to the garbage dump!

Red dots on left of page


You need to measure the distance between two dots (In milimeters if possible). After that I may be able to determine what is causing the problem.

TV turns off with balck screen and small color dot in center


Best Educated guess would be your Flyback transformer is failing. Not something you can replace at home and the value of the part may exceed the replacement value of the set by the time labour and part are factored together. DO Not look to replace this part yourself as this part inside the set as it has a high voltage that can be lethal. Output voltage can be around 50,000
