Question about Televison & Video
Hi there, I saw a post where you suggested you know how to fix this issue. It happens on any signal input, from HDMI 1080i, to component in on my XBOX 360.
The picture looks good mostly, especially bright areas, but and large dark areas have red pixels constantly firing to give a sparkle effect.
I am reasonably technically competent, but the amount of screws to remove the back was a little daunting, not sure if I should remove ALL of them and assume the back will come off correctly. After taking one or two laptops apart for upgrades, I know that things can go badly quickly.
Model - R5052
Type # - SR5OP5
Model Code - HPR5052X / xaa
I have the TV plugged into a UPS in the surge protected side, to hopefully regulate against voltage fluctuations!
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated

Hi, Sparkles. if anyone knows how to fix this, would be greatful Regards,
I came across this LG 42PX5D 42 in. HDTV Plasma Television question on FixYa.com and thought you might be interested in reading it.
My set is around 16 months old & has recently started doing this. it is linked to a Sky HD box.
I have several inputs including P.C using-(RGB)SKY -(HDMI), Home Cinema -(AV4) and DVD -(gold plate scart (AV2).
The problem is active on all connections/inputs despite checking the connections. Occasionally (very rarely) it disappears for a programme or 2.
At first didn't know if it was my sky signal strength but obviously, cant be that, if its active on all inputs. going to try the idea on fix to see if it works.
if anyone knows how to fix this, would be greatful Regards,

I had the same problem, LG came out and it turned out to be the board that filters out the interference around the screen. I pretty sure that was it, took them 10 mins to fix by replacing a few of the boards inside the screen. Sorry I can't be more specific but its not an unfixable problem, so nothing to worry about.

Try to reduce the Vs voltage about 5-10V below its spec value. Vs is from the Power Supply board. The spec value of Vs was printed on the back of PDP panel. (You need to open the back cover)
