    I have a similar problem where small white little dots appear on the left side of the screen. this is most noticed whenever there is a black background only. they appear if I am watching a DVD connected via component or my satellite via HD-MI.
    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

The symptom sounds like a common problem we have found with the plasma panels called diffusion. The cure in Samsung usually is a VSCAN alignment. Since its an SPS-4243 the unit should be under warranty and is covered. Call 1-800-SAMSUNG and they will direct you to the nearest service center.

Toshiba L675D, black spots


Your screen is shot or partially disconnected. A lot of laptops have the vid card to lcd connect in bracket that connects the screen to the keyboard. I have fixed many by siimply taking it apart and reconnecting the clip but the spots dont sound good. Ebay to buy one or Cl to dump it as a fixer. Either way its a waste of money to have someone fix it for you unless you do it yourself.

Any High quality RCA type Audio/Video cables will work for your installation, I just researched this for you.

As for your second question copying from DVD to DVD is a tricky situation. DVD's have several forms of copy protection including CSS Macrovision Level 2 and Encryption. Under the fair use act you are legally allowed to make backups of media that you own. I am not going to post the solution here as it may violate site rules but I know how to do it. If you contact me I will tell you how.

I hope you find this information useful, Feel free to contact me with any of your technical needs. I do this for a hobby, My info is always FREE....

I have a 52 inch mitsubishi dlp and white dots are popping up on the sceen and stays there a whole bunch of little white dots what is that.


All TV have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables.

If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen.

Many times resetting the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens.

The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken if you decide to tinker with em, the usually have lift locks that release them.

Good luck.

DVD won't play movies in color


RCA cable connectors (red,white, yellow) are usually for an analog setup. You could still use these for "component" setup, but know the difference with color stamps as follows:

Component color stamps are "blue, green, red" ( blue is marked Pb, green is marked Y, red is marked Pr)

RCA color stamps your using are "red, white, yellow"

Here are the proper hook up method for "Component" using your "RCA" connectors:

On both the TV and DVD component setup:

Plug the red RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pr (red)

Plug the white RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pb (blue)

Plug the yellow RCA fitting in the component port marked "Y (green)


Be sure this setup is the same for the TV's component input ports, and the DVD's component output ports.

i-Note:

For optimum picture quality you may want to purchase component cables as the gage is thicker giving better impedance match resulting in better picture and sound quality.

White dots across the screen


It is a timing problem with the cable, you will only get it on 1080p. Is your cable particularly long, or are you using an adaptor (2 x Cat5e network cables)? Try a different cable.
