Is it normal for a blem ( I have a very small one ) to turn translucent or lose its darkness if you are, for example, looking at a white wall with IR flood on inside (enough to see honeycombing) ? Just curious. Thanks dudes.

added a video for clarity. Look at 12 o’clock position and as I turn iluminator up, the faint darker spot begins to glow and becomes brighter/ translucent then returns to normal as I lower ilum brightness. https://imgur.com/a/kS1wOty

I understand about IR and white walls but I am wondering what the spot is I’m referring to in the short video. Ty.

its an emission blem. just a different kind of blem where basically light is getting through where it shouldn't.

Yes what it is doing is normal, it's a cosmetic blem and likely won't get any worse

You can search for blems and cosmetic issues without having the IR on and then you won't risk damaging your tube.

Definitely ^^^this^^^. Don't do white wall inspection with IR or any light. Blem tubes that don't pass white wall inspections are some of the best buys out there. Blems disappear in the real world and can be looked past easily. Ask me how I know
