What could cause a dark spot on the DLP TV?

I have dark spots on my dlp tv.


Answer by  markochiguegmailcom (514)

A DLP (Digital Light Processing) projector or TV uses thousands of very tiny mirrors to cast an image onto a screen or wall. One or several of these micro mirrors could have been busted or burnt out. Improper handling or too much heat are the two most probable contributing factors in this case.

can leaving the house too hot during a Florida day cause these micro mirrors to fail?  add a comment

Those dark spots are probably dead pixels. This is a normal occurrence for televisions of this type. It is not possible to fix unless you get a completely new screen.

The inner screen between the cover and actual soft screen could have condensation built up on it. Gently removew it and wipe it with screen cleaner. You could also have burn ins on the bulb directly.

If it's external spots, they make a special cleaner, you can find it at Wal-Mart. That will take care of your problem. It actually says in the owners manual to only use the special cleaner, to do else wise could damage your screen. Good fortune. You could also probably try Radio Shack.

The are dark spots but they are on your retina due to watching too much TV. I suggest you take a break from watching so much TV and go do something else.

Usually a dark spot on a DLP TV is caused by the angle in which you view the tv from.

Hitting your DLP TV with a ball peen hammer could cause dark spots. Stop doing that. If you're furious at something Glenn Beck (or any other right wing looney) says, it would be better to take that hammer to a pillow. That won't be quite as satisfying, but still cathartic.
