Yes. Unplugging it and urging it in should not cause red dots. Is it plugged in securely on both ends? Any bent pins? Does it still happen with hdmi or another output? Get a converter if you don't have them.




Did you see my 2 pms or one from rolling thunder?

I just answered that. You asked if it was safe, I said "yes".
