1: I see no dot to be honest.
the first pick with dark area's in the corners on the light screen isn't too bad. it's really hard to see what's going on in the other pics.
try watching a show about antartica or something, do the clouds overlay the picture with a yellow to brownish color? can you see the picture moving behind this clouding?
if so take it back.
actually looking at your pic again this seems more like uneven back lighting. clouds from what I take on the term and what I had on a previous lcd, is where you can get transparent dark areas of the screen, but you can see through them to the action behind. like a foggy section ya know.
2: I picked up my tv 1 week ago from best buy and I have 2004.? firmware. and I am not updating it. so don't worry about your firmware version, its not an early version.
only update if you have a known problem that is going to fix it. plus 2007 is the latest you can download at this time.
firmware will not fix your clouding issues, that is your panel.
does your panel have light bleeding in the corners? when displaying a black screen it would look like mini spot lights or flashlights shining from the corners.
what panel version do you have? on the back of your set is a sticker with the model number then a space and then a letter. this letter is your panel version. it may not mean much i'm just curious.
