    Hi All

    I saw a thread similar to this and never heard a full explanation. I got this TV in our new flat and these spots started building.
    They come off easily. Not sure if they “grow” back.

    Heating is currently broken in the flat and we use a heater.

    Any ideas?

    How can I tell if it is dangerous or not?

    Looks like condensation marks.

    Are you using a Calor 'Heat Cabinet' type of heater, perchance? If you are that is the source of the condensation.
    (in the family such heaters are known as 'Damp Machines'!)

    The heating and ventilation is broken and service is being done currently. It's a Vent Axia setup with heating fans in the ceiling (probably not the right way to describe it). As that's both not working and we're cold, I've just bought a De'Longhi 2kW Thermo Convector Heater to plug into the wall. That keeps us warm until the heating/ventilation is fixed. Obviously, we're opening the windows quite a bit to get some fresh air in.

    So do you still think it's just condensation marks and should be fine once ventilation is back up?

    give it all a wipe over with a soft cloth, use some mild detergent to kill off any nastiness and keep an eye on it.
