Try pressing the dot. If that does not work you can try resetting the unit which will return it to factory specs but all your saved information like favorites and routes will be lost. The reset button is on the bottom of the unit. Power the unit off then press and hold the reset till it starts and the choose yes on the screen to restore the unit.
I have attached a link to the manual which shows a photo of the location and page 13 describes the reset in more detail.

IPad air suddenly went black, except for a dim rotating circle of dots in the center of the screen. It is completely unresponsive. Know any fix we could do?


Put it on to charge. Press and hold the On button and the Home button until the white Apple logo appears and then let go. This is called a Soft Reset.

You need a new DLP chip. The chip has little mirrors that are black on one side and white on the other side. When the chip wears out , your screen will turn white one dot at a time or black one dot at a time or they may just all stick shut at once. Since your screen is black, all your mirrors are closed. You can buy the chip from shopjimmy.com and they have a video of how to replace the chip so you can do it yourself. It takes about 1 1/2 hours. The chip is about $160. To have this service done for you is about $200. Do it yourself and save the money. Your tv will be just like new again. Just make sure the chip is in perfectly level or when you turn your tv back on, your picture will be slanted. you won't notice it on the picture itself but words on the screen or scrolling messages and the menu will be slanted.

I have nec np200 and there's a lot of dots appeared on the screen. what seems to be a problem


I have 2 NP-200 projectors installed in a school which show white dots on a black background and black dots on a white background. This is caused by the DMD chip losing pixels. Only solution is to replace the chip, I'm researching now if that i an economical solution.

Black screen white dots


This is likely due to Hardware Failure. Your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) has likely overheated to the extent of artifacting which is when the device begins to have trouble rendering objects and images and crashes constantly. The only viable solution is to send it in if you still have warranty, Otherwise, you'll have to either buy a new Xbox 360 or send it in for repairs from microsoft.

Hope this helps.
