Question about Dynex 32 in. LCD Flat-Panel HDTV

2 Answers

Straight out of the box had 3 pixels out, Now 2 days later a Black Circle.

We purchased our Dynex 32" LCD two days ago. When we took it out and hooked it up, we noticed 3 little white specs on the tv, but you only see them with black screen, figured we could live with that. But now, only 2 days later, we were watching a movie, and during any dark/black scenes, there is a big black circle in the center of the tv, and brightness in the black around it. We have no spekers close to the TV, and we turn it off when not in use. Do I take it back and exchange it since it is so new??? Or will I have the same problem with another one? Thanks, A.W.

Exchange it. I have had the same TV since Novemeber 07 with no issues so far. Works great. I use it as a computer monitor and TV.

The white spots are called 'dead pixels' and depending on the manufacturer, they may allow a certain number of them but normally not in the primary viewing area.

The other anomaly shouldn't be there and LCD displays are not affected by magnetic fields as are CRTs.

Return it quickly and I would be reluctant to accept a simple exchange.
Do some checking on the Dynex brand before you take it back though to see if this kind of quality is common to the make.

Dynex 32" 720 LCD HDTV - no channel listing after run auto scan?

Excuse me but the other answers are written by people who have not actually confronted the problem and are just guessing. They are all wrong. Here's the answer:

If your TV is expecting a TV input, it will keep searching for at least one TV channel on cable or antenna. If you only have a DVD player plugged in, for example, or if your cable is hooked up wrong, so there's no video signal on it, the TV will keep searching forever. (This is an unforgivable design flaw, by the way. But then, it was a cheap TV, wasn't it?)

To solve the problem, look at your remote control. You will find input buttons. Mine are small, along the top, right under the "power" button. Try pressing "video" for example, instead of TV. That stops the TV from hunting for TV channels.

Have a merry Christmas. Enjoy your new TV. Watch it in moderation and eat fruit and vegetables every day.

Dynex 32" went black w/ only audio now present

Without looking at the set and from what you say , it sound like the chroma stage has a fault on it . However sometimes it can be that someone has messed with the settings in the menu and caused this problem so check that first .
If you find they are ok then I am afraid the only solution is an engineers inspection , the chroma chip will almost certainly be surface soldered and these require special equipment to repair them safely ..The other possibility is that if you have a cable or Satelite box attached the fault could be in them and not on your television set :.. it's just not recieveing a picture from them . disconnect them and try you television on its own first ....

DO I take it back????


While the occasional dead pixel may be the norm for LCD TV's, the dark circle you've been encountering sounds as if it may be a factory defect. As long as you are still within the 30-day return period, I would suggest returning to your local store and seeking an exchange at this time.

Generally, your chances of encountering the exact same problem with two different TV's made by the same company are slim to none, but that does not necessarily mean that it is not a possibility. When the same defect surfaces repeatedly, manufacturers will often issue recalls of the affected model line. For this specific model TV however, I was not able to locate any such recall notices.

Remember that if you’re still not sure how to proceed, you may always speak with an associate at your local Best Buy™ store for more information and further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
