The driver board is going bad it sounds like and if you do not call up and get it fixed under warranty, as it should still be under a warranty, then its going to be a nice hefty repair bill. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread

Call Samsung customer support. I had the same problem and a Samsung Field Engineer came out to my house and adjusted the vscan voltage to get the red dots out of the Gray/Darker colors. This is a typical adjustment for some plasma's and was painless from my perspective. Most of the time for this fix was taking all the screws from the back panel off and on to get to the adjustment. This was all covered under warranty (including labor). Samsung has a great warranty for their plasma's..

If you are using an HDMI cable, be sure that is rated a "high-speed". Lower quality cables cannot handle the bandwidth and can cause red spots on the screen.

Hello, why does my plasma tv have thousands of red and green flashing dots all over the dark parts of screen after it has been on for roughly half an hour? if i turn tv off for a while then turn back on...


I had a similar problem but mine was just red specks that showed up in dark scenes. I opened up my plasma and found the adjustment pots that are labeled Vsc, Vy. I then marked the factory default with a sharpie first. Then I lowered the Vy a little and my red specks disappeared. Now my tv looks awsome again like it was new.

Red dots all over screen poor picture more when


This is a "mal-discharge" fault & will need either an adjustment on the Y-Sustain board or a software update to the control board. Contact your LG dealer to arrange someone to sort this out for you.

Plasma tv has little red dots in the black


This problem (known as sparkles) can be cured by adjusting the ramp control on the Y-Sustain board. If this does not cure the dots then there is a software remedy for the control board which an LG repair centre could fix. Failing that a replacement board is required. The orbitor & whitewash are like screen savers to help to prevent a screen burn from a permanently displayed image.
