You should have primed the patches allowed that to dry and then hit the patches with the semi-gloss before you painted the entire wall.

The reason I am saying you need to sand the entire wall is that you need to get the the same finish and hold out on the entire wall to get rid of the dull spots where you repaired the wall.

I am having the same problem with the house we just bought and painted, but I did primer the whole wall before putting the finishing paint on. Have any suggestions.

My house is 14 years old. Maybe my imagination, but just had a roof inspection, followed by a rain storm and on the ceiling appeared an oval 12" x 2" discolored mark. Thinking it was a water spot ... although strange shape, I investigated above the ceiling drywall in the attic. There was no sign of water, on the gypsum board, damp insulation or roof plywood water signs.
Strange, but after 14 yes could all of a sudden an original repair mark now show through the original paint. ?

Just repaint the entire wall. You can apply spot primer (wall color paint) over the spots first and the repaint (cut in and roll) the entire wall

What if the paint used had had primer in it? I used valspar with primer eggshell sheen and spackle spots are visible.
