Big grey/black spot

I have a big 4" spot on my rca 27" lcd tv. It started in the upper right corner & moved to the middle of the right side now. What could cause this & anyway to fix it? The tv is a little over 1 year old & cost $1600.00!

    No, it just started, never abused. It moved, that's what I don't get. It's just a big grey perfectly round circle, other then that the tv has a excellent picture.

  • bowie56 Aug 16, 2008

    This is the circle

  • bowie56 Aug 16, 2008

    Here is a better picture. The light at the top was the flash from my camera...it's the dark circle under that, this picture shows it better. Thanks for helping!

    I have the same problem with my 2 year old Westinghouse LVM-42W2 LCD monitor (42"). The spot is about 2" in diameter at the right edge of the screen and is growing.



    Anyone with any idea or experience with this problem?

Is it a fuzzy spot or an actual hard edged black spot?LCD televisions can have a loss of pixel display- most very small. Was the TV hit with something or dropped against something (the screen)?

OR Try this first:
Black box appears on the screen
• Closed-captioning might be on. Check the Analog or Digital Caption option in the Setup menu.

Please let me know if your problem is solved. Thank You.

    It is not something exterior that is shining on the TV and has your eyes fooled?

    Have you tried moving the TV to another location, just to be sure. If it still looks the same, You will need to see a seviceperson. I don't like having to tell anyone that, especially on something so new and probably just out of warranty. You didn;t by any chance purchase an extended warranty? I wish that I could help you more. I did some research and could find nothing that matches your problem. Most people who have problems lose a few pixels of the picture,and that is not round.

    How incredibly strange. I'm sorry, I wish I had a clue. I will continue to research in the morning. It looks like light shining through.

    I am going to present ideas to you as I research so that you cn try them as quickly as possible. I am reading that some televisions have a test feature that places a large circle on the screen to test color,etc. Please go back through all of your settings on your TV to make sure that it has not accidentally been put in to some sort of test mode. Continuing to research...



    Can you change the resolution on your TV? just make sure that it is not set at a higher resolution than it is capable of reproducing as a picture.

    I just found this comment on a forum site and it makes the most sense to me, so I think that if I were you I would give a serve person a call and see what they say. Here is the Comment



    "I have a tech coming to look at my set on Friday. He told me he has seen this issue a good bit with LCD TV's, not just Hitachi's, but others as well. He said that it can be caused by dirt or dust on the lamp, or in the microscopic mirrors on the lcd panel. He will attempt to clean these components when he comes, and if it does not resolve the problem, he will order a new light engine for the set and replace that. The crop circle on my set is very faint and not even noticable most of the time, unless you have a dark black background. Being I forked out a good bit of cash for this set, I'm a perfectionist with it and I want it repaired."



    At any rate, I would give a service person a call and get a professional technicians opinion on this unusual problem.

    Okay it looks like it could be a back light problem or interference from a flourescent light. At any rate, here is the ink to look at the manual and the tech sheet for your Tv as well instructions on ordering a new backlight and how to install.

    Good luck to you. I hope this helps. Have a good day.

This problem is caused by liquid intrusion in the panel. The liquid pass thru the lower side of the LCD panel. (i.e... splash of water, your pet urinate on the panel, etc.)

    I also have this problem on a Samsung 52" TV. I have had it for just over a year. I have 4 of them. One is 4 inches, one is 3 inches and 2 are 2 inches. They started at the bottom right half of the tv. About 3-4 months ago they started to move straight up. Now the 4 inch one is about 7 inches from center to the bottom. The 3 inch one is about 4 inches from the bottom and the 2 inchers are still at the bottom but can see they are starting to move up. Everyday they move up about one pixel. At this rate by the end of 2011 they should be close to the top. It will be nice that when they get to the top they continue off the screen. I never got a good answer either so I feel your pain.

LG 55LM4600-UC LED TV I have was squirted with a squirt gun. Would replacing the t-con board fix this tv? Please read further details.


when water shorts out something it overloads a lot of other components so the best advice is to take it in for a proper diagnosis.
you just replace a board but another board is damaged it might just blow the board you replaced and that would prove nothing

Where can I purchase the Audio Video Connection for my dvd player I want to hook it up to my TV but can't find the correct cable Thank you Sandy


For the COBY TF-DVD7500, the video is carried on a single RCA plug cable. You can make due with a composite video cable (with three RCA plugs on each end) or get an RCA cable. The audio output can either be digital audio (which uses a special coax cable) or a headphone connector (analog audio).I believe the headphone jack is a 3.5 mm connector. If you use a composite video cable to your TV, you can connect the red and white plugs to an adapter (3.5 mm M to 2 RCA F). Then the TV speakers will get the audio track; otherwise you can use the DVD player speakers or the digital audio out.

I hope this helps.
