Dark spot could be a faulty led. if you put a program on that is in white screen you should see all the leds light up the screen. dark spot will be were the led is not working. if on white screen and they all lite up but still dark around the area, it could be the lcd screen. and could be dying pixels. and try this video

SOURCE: screen spot

Since you have a black spot,you need to look at the mirror or inside screen. If it were a certain color, like purple or yellow, for instance, I would suggest a lens or picture tube, but, since it is black in one spot, I would suspect debris in those areas.

SOURCE: Smudge marks???

If they are grease marks you can use a warm water a soft cloth like a t-shirt and little dish washing liquid. Gentley wipe the area only stroking down or up--- NEVER SIDE TO SIDE---. Have a dry cloth ready if you drip water down the screen. Now if those are scuff marks, your done, they cannot be removed. They are like the old record albums with the grooves, once the grooves get distorted that's it. Good luck.

If your bulb light came on, Replace it before the bulb goes out. if not It could damage the bulb housing when the bulb pops. I have the same problem and dont have a solution for the spot.

I just replaced bulb with new and after a day there is a dark spot on the screen

I have the same TV - I have a dark spot in the upper left hand corner. I have always thought this TV was dark. Be sure to get OME lamp. Cheaper ones are not worth it and can damage your TV more.
dlplampsource,com--Just a note if this ever happens to you. TV would not come on in the AM-Had no picture, but had sound. It was not the lamp, but the safety switch. It's blue and at the bottom of the lamp housing. As soon as I flipped it and replaced the back cover, the TV came on.

Spot's on tv screen's

If the spots are coin sized or so, its likely dust. These tvs are know for dust particles getting on the len inside and causing issues. The tv needs complex disassembly and cleaning to solve the issue. The only tool required is a philips screwdriver but it does require some know how. A air compressor or can of compressed air is helpful also. Let me know if I can assist you further, the directions could be quite lengthy. Thanks

I changed the lamp now i get dotted lines across the screen and a dark spot in the lower righthand corner.the lines go away when i turn the brightnes way up on the is 4yr old had a great pictur but...

It either sounds like you have the wrong wattage to the lamp or the lamp requires more watts, not designed for this model television. You may also check to make sure all cards are seated properly, and no fuses are blown.

I have a 56" JVC rear projections HD ILA tv.

Turn tv off and unplug it. Take the access door off either side of the tv. Use a dust cleaning tool like a swiffer with an extension (or make one). Clean off lens (most likely the problem). I have the same thing that happens to my JVC 61". You can use a vacuum with extension if your VERY careful.

JVC HD-61Z786 Projection TV: Problem: There is a light/dim spot on the tv screen. Thinking it was the lamp, I replaced the lamp and the light/dim spot is still there. Any ideas on the problem?

There is either dust on the lens or there is a problem deep within the light engine. This is a some-what common problem with these sets. The light engine is very expensive; not economical to repair.

Gray spots on screen on a JVC HDILA model HD 56G 787

The gray spots are caused by dust on your lens, very easy to clean.

Power down the TV.

If you open the right side access panel (right side as you are looking at the front of the TV) you can see it in the middle, it's not very big. Using a scratch/lint free cloth, gently wipe off the lens or use a vacuum to **** up the dust being careful not to actually touch the lens.

Replace the access panel and enjoy your spot free screen.

I fixed it!!!! If you can open one of the sides (on the JVC there is a little door with a screw), then you can clean the projector lense in the middle on the bottom. It kind of looks like a big light bulb. It seems there is just dust on the glass that is projected onto the screen. We had a big gray spot and cleaned it with a damp glass cloth and Ouila! It disappeared. I scored MAJOR brownie points with my husband for this one! He wanted to replace the TV!

Screen too dark

I have a JVC and my screen is getting darker and darker. There is also a blue shadow on people when they are in the frame.

Dark Blotches

This is probably caused by dust, either on the mirror, lens, or possibly inside the light engine. There is a 5" dia hole on the side of the back of the tv where you can take out one screw and take the door off. this is just big enough for you to put your hand through to clean the mirror and lens. Hope this helps.
