Pixel misfiring (diffusion errors) are caused when the tv is not firing and erasing the pixels correctly. It can be caused by a number of things, usually a voltage or waveform is off somewhere. If you just bought the tv, return it and get another. If you are out of warrany, you can remove the back panel and run the tv to check the voltages. Don't touch the heatsinks! they're electrically hot and will zap you.. the voltages are labeled on the back of the plasma panel with a sticker. first check Vs and Va. sometimes you can check -Vy, Vset, Vscan and others if labeled on the board. If you have to adjust waveforms you need a very $$ o-scope and should get qualified technician to adjust. If a board is bad, its likely your power supply or Y-sustain pcb, and less likely your Z-sustain or contol (logic) board.

Need to hook up LG tv to phillips cd/4 head hi fi and RCA surround sound


Hello!
Ok: I will guide yourself through "hook up" process.
1. connect your TV set to your VCR, using 3 wires RCA cable(Yellow, red, white) to "Video1" input, yellow only! The other 2(sound channels) connect to "home theater/DVD unit. Use "aux" input.
2. Connect your DVD video output. yellow or 3 colored( green, blue, red) component cables to your TV's Video 2 or "component 1" input.
Now you'll be able to use your TV as a video monitor for your VCR and DVD.
The sound will be handled by DVD/Home theater. In case your TV is a very modern, all you can get out is: direct digital sound stream. Your home theater must be equipped with coaxial(orange) input(looks like RCA plug) or optical input. Or both. You must use proper cables to connect TV to Home theater.
sorry, but it requires some patience and thorough reading of user manuals.
Otherwise, it's "level 1" difficulty. nothing you may damage, due to installation.
Good luck,
Feel free to ask for more help, if needed.
thanks,
Alex.

The three picture cords (red/blue/green) often are a little larger around than the sound cords (red/white). If they are they same size, they are often grouped separate by picture and sound. Double check to verify if you have the "red" cords correct. Good luck.

42EDT41 colored snow/pixels


I have the same green dots that are seen especially when the bacground picture is dark or black. Mine does not seem to be changing when it warms up, and I also get it on my digital cable as well as on any DVD's I play. Please help with any advise. I think it was always there, but I assumed that a dgital cable upgrade would fix it - I should have known better...

Thanks a bunch in advance...
