Daewoo Plasma DP-42SM Image "bouncing/scrambled"

Okay, so my uncle just gave me this tv last night because he was having problems with it. His boss gave it to him and had the starter replaced in it. But here is my experience with it last night trying to get it to work...

I plug it in and connect it to my Comcast Digital Cable with the composite cables. The screen is pink and green jigsaw puzzle. I turn it off with the power button ON the tv. (This turns the set completely off where as the remote only turns the TV off and puts it on standby).

So I turn it back on with the POWER button on the set and then on again with the remote. The image and color is normal but the image is shaking left to right. I repeat these steps and then I get that "unsubscribed porn channel" look where the color is off and the image seems to scramble when there is a lot of motion on screen. I also tried rolling through the different picture modes (Video 1, Video 2, Component 1, etc, etc) and when I got back to Video 1 the image is gone and left with nothing but a black image with some dark blue diagonal lines through it. Mind you the sound is working perfectly.

Anyways, can someone diagnose this problem from what I've described and, if possible, tell me how to fix it. (Whether is be myself or a professional) Not to be a bug, but how much would something like this cost to fix.

Thank you for your time and help!

    You tried different video modes. Did you try different inputs?

How could I connect a Daewoo 42sm TV?, I can't afford cable so I use a converter box(analog to digital w/rabbit antenna)on my other TV and I was given this Daewoo TV and would like to watch it;please


If your converter box only has RF outpit connectors "F" type screw on it looks like this my be more of a monitor then tv.I took a quick look at the manual and didn't see any RF inputs so it appears it doesn't have tuners built in Looks like you'll need a box that has RCA output connectors.or others that will match what the monitor has on it for input types

What have a red image in the middle of our plasma tv what could it be and can we get rid of it


Hello nacoleray,
Does it look like a burned in image? If so and if you have a brand new samsung tv, it should a scroll bar that cleans out the screen. Go through the settings and this should fix it. If it is last years model or older you may not have this feature. Go to a channel that is snowy, scrambled picture and leave it on for couple of hours. This should some what make it better. If it is not a burned in image it could mean that you have dead pixels. Unfortunately this is not something you can just fix. I suggest contacting your manufacture. I hope this helps, if not give me a feedback. Good luck.

PINK SCREEN ON DAEWOO PLASMA TV


Sounds like your panel might be going out or a faulty video card. This is the first time I have heard of a solid pink screen on a plasma. Usually this happens on LCDs, though they sometimes go white and stay white, which does signal a bad panel. tv needs repair
