    The black dot sounds like a phosphur burn in the screen. If so it's incurable. It'd be the sort of thing a TV would get when on demo with it's screen on the whole day long, day after day, with high brightness/contrast settings.

    Phosphor burn leaves an image, he is talking about one faulty pixel.

    I have a few of these on my monitor and TV, you don't really notice them. I think a small amount is acceptable and wouldn't get you an exchange.

    well, it is a Toshiba television.. and I have 2 weeks exchange.
    so i am gonna replace it for another tv..

    I really like this Tosh, but the buzzing sound is VERY annoying..
    a few ppl say by notching and turning my cables it would go away.
    no luck here!

    So, my buzzing sound stays... any suggestions ?

    ps: it is very hard to determain if the replacement Tosh also buzzes .. its a kinda busy story with like 6900 tv's on :)

    So did I. :confused:


    (I know TV's don't have pixels but it's the easiest way to describe an imperfect phosphor cell)
