CRT rear projection? Could be debris on the lens/crt assy, or inside of the screen. If you are so inclined, and careful, you could go in and dust everything off. Or if still under warranty, have a tech do the deed.

A moth got in mine . . . took a big old moth poop on the back of the screen. http://www.highdefforum.com/showthread.php?t=7717

I took some pics, it's really not all that scary. You'll need 2 people to put the rear back on if it's like mine. Do a search on cleaning the CRT lenses, it's not a standard cleaning, you want to suspend any dirt/dust particles in some sort of liquid solution. You risk scratching the lenses if you just go in and wipe.
