My philips plasma 42PF5620 is barely two years old and not with much use on it. the picture quality seems to have diminuished and when the screen is blank one can notice some vrtical fadig on the left and right. These faded patches feel hotter and look like some burnt areas on the screen

    thanks



    Hope I explained myself well enough. when the screen is black there are faded areas visible, which are found on the left and on the right, which run vertically.

    I also noticed that in dark scenes n films you hardly get to see the details of the dark parts, but only the light parts which are silhouetted

    I have a similar problem but the picture is actually MORE clear in the vertical margins. They are blacker and when watching a darker movie the character color is much better when in the edges. Any ideas? Faulty screen? It is a Hitachi 50" about a year old. I got the HH Gregg warranty for 5 years with it. Should I get a tech out here?

I think there is a fault with the screen itself. Even though it is two years old and probably out of guarantee I think you have a genuine case to have Philips do something about it. Without putting my neck on the block and so it costs you as little as possible you have to somehow persuade Philips technical department to examine the tv to admit a manufacturing fault but usually you have to commision an independant examination yourself which could be quite expensive for it to be confirmed there is a fault with the screen BEFORE going to Philips with your findings. And even if they did admit to the tv screen being faulty they might not do nothing unless you pay some of the cost,again which could be quite expensive. Please seek legal advice and post how you got on every step of the way. Hope this helps and the very best of luck.

Poor picture quality. Picture also tends to curve


The curving is caused by bad digital convergencr chips (2) located on large signal board. They need replaced along with blown pico fuses and the convergence resistors. Chips are huge compared to a regular IC. 2" x 1.5" and they will be bolted on fairly large heatsinks. Cloudy picture is most likely the coolant needs replaced in the picture tubes. This needs to be done approximately every 5 years.

I have a 52" Sony WEGA plasma TV. The picture went out, audio is fine. No TV picture, no dvd, no anything. What is wrong and how much do I need to budget to fix it? I love my Sony plasma!


that is because plasma tvs have a limit on there screen life and if all is done all day for months and months was watching tv ,playing games then you will need a new tv plasmas **** you can get same quality out of a lcd flat panel and three time the screen life or you could spend anthor grand and have the solution replace and maybe the that part of the control board went out and you will spending about half of what you paid for it to fix thats why i have two lcds have not had one problem with them one 32 for my computer and a 42 for me to watch tv ov on play games with and both the same brand and i paid 1200 for both brand new

Bad picture


A 10 year old Rear Projection tv is usually at the end of its life. No such thing as "fluid". Best advice, get a new TV.

I have a teac plh4220sd and is about 18 months old. recently the picture quality started to degrade and yesterday completle lost picture but still have sound, is there anything that can be done


Hi I have the same problem and fixed it by running a fan behind the TV I think the Plasma screen runs to hot.
The fan completely fixed the screen if you feel the top of the TV you can see how hot it gets running a fan behind the set keeps it cool.

Picture discoloration to left and right of screen.....


Hi! Guy,
This sounds like the G2 may not be properly adjusted, providing too much beam current.
This will some times cause feather edging, or lighter than normal raster on some scenes. This set should be serviced by a qualified service tech.

Side shadows on picture


it sounds as if there are speakers to close to the tv or the built in speakers are not magnetically sheilded properly (maufacturer defect) if u have or have ever had speakers on the left and right side of your tv then the magnets in them will discolor and distort the screen. sometimes even long after the speakers have been moved away from the tv it will still look that way. you may try going to the library( or online )and looking in tv repair books on how to build a homade degauser unless your tv has that feature built into it in the menu somewhere like some computer monitors do. I had placed the front speaker of a 5.1 surround sound system on top my tv and it cuased that same problem, but i found out that by placing a small round magnet with a hole in the center on top of the tv (after removing the speaker for good) right where the discoloration was.. had to flip it one side or the other to get proper effect...it immediatly took away most of the discoloration and over time it disappeared. I hope this helps. Please email me at agclay777@comcast.net as to your conclusion in case it will help others. thanks, Adam
