Re: Little red dots

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

Re: Little red dots

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..

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.

White dots in plasma tv

The only thing you can try is to adjust the tiny control on the Y board, if you want to try do this. Open the set , set it up so you can watch it with the back off. now looking at the back on the left side you will see a circuit board larger connected to a smalled one or two that go to the screen edge . on the larger board look for a few small controls, mark their positions with a dark sharpy then turn each a little while looking at the dots to see if one makes them better or worse. If one control effects the dots try to center it for the least amount of dots, if no effect is observed when a control is turned return it the original position that you mark before starting. if the dots do not clear either the Y board is bad or the whole scfreen is defective.

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.
