Are they always there? or does the tv have to warm-up?

Are they showing up on diffrent inputs (HDMI, S-line & component)?

Are the dots 'fixed' or they pop-up here & there go away & pop-up somewhere else?

Are you getting 120 volts, my TV got purple when it dropped below 115volt. (I got a voltage stablizer & it took care of that).

For warranty you would have to call them.

Good luck

They are always there and they show up on all inputs. Seems worse on HD stations. I have a stabilizer. I am checking with Best Buy to get more details. Thanks for the response

cause that is a model number to the detachable side mounted speakers on some pioneer models.
