Hi folks, I have a 51 Samsung plasma 3D TV that I purchased last year (still under warranty) but I just recently noticed that in the middle of the screen, I can see pink dots in the middle of the screen. Below is a photo I took. Don't worry about the wavy lines. That's from the camera.

Any idea why the pink dots are there? I noticed I see from a whole lot of sources that are connected to the device so it's not xbox alone. You can see the pink dots above the 'connecting to xbox live' text



Thanks




Do whatever you want to do man.

Might be some form of "line bleed" (google for interminable forum discussions on it), I see this a bit on my PS51D550 when it tries to display particular shades of grey when I'm using it as a PC screen. Certain combinations of colours on a horizontal line seem to make the electronics, or maybe the colour dithering algorithm, go crazy for the rest of the line.

Seems that most of the plasmas do that to a degree with really bad dither that is visible on a solid area of colour. I certainly saw it on all the ones in store when I was TV shopping.
