2005 Samsung Plasma 50'' Model--RED SPARKLES

Should I keep it or not?
I traded in an item of mines valued at $800+$150 cash for this 50'' Plasma.
Started messing around with it and after a few mintues I noticed these tiny red dots (sparkles). My question is should I keep the TV or give it back.
If this problem can be fixed please let me know. Thanks

Hi!

We've had the same problem with our Samsung 50" Plasma tv. we purchased in March 2006. I called a TV repair shop, they came out to our home and said they could not do a "voltage adjustment" on the set and said the "sparkles" are a result of a defective panel. The repair bill was going to be in the area of approx. $500.00 (canadian $$). We said "thanks..but no thanks!). We'll live with our set the way it is for a while until the problem worsens. My advice to you............give the set back. Obviously, Samsung has been having issues with this defective part.

Coloured sparkles appear in dark areas of picture


Sometimes just adjusting the VSCAN voltage inthe set will cure it. Other times it will be a faulty panel. Either case requires a technician to do the repairs.

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)

Lg 42pc1d plasma tv red sparkles


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.

Vscan voltages on LG Plasma


Are your sparkles mainly red pixels flashing randomly over the TV screen, especially over darker areas? If so your sparkles are I believe a discharge problem, and can be fixed with a firmware upgrade, which I think resets and corrects the voltage and removes the sparkles, which is caused by misfiring of the gases produced with plasma TV's. I have had my TV repaired with a firmware upgrade, which takes only 10-15 minutes and is reasonably cheap repair, and now the TV looks great, no more sparkles. Don't play around with the voltages let the pros fix it, also beware! leave this too long and it can become permanent, and need a new screen which is half the price of the a new TV.
