Philip 50 inch plasma-red dots

I have a Philips plasma 50 inch tv, I had the red dot problem a year ago. Went through the extended warranty and Andulusia TV service in Bensalem, to repair the problem. They had it for amonth and told me that they replaced the motherboard, it wasn't fixed. I called them and they came out again and took my TV for 2 weeks. They called and said it was fixed and they are going to deliver my TV back to me. Put the TV on and 2 hours later, BAM ! red dots again. Called the warranty company (Repair Master) and asked them what do I have to do to get it fixed or get it replaced, obviously something is wrong with it. They told me to send it back to Andulusia TV and it will not be replaced until they say it can't be repaired. Andulusia wants me to give them the TV back again. I said, No, you had it two times already in a year and its not fixed. Basically, they told me to go pound sand. I think the system is that they wait you out until the warranty is over, then it's screw you. I'm Hot. This TV was $3,800.00 and $500.00 for the warranty. I need some good adavice. Can you help me out?

SOURCE: Sound on TV

I to have a sound problem with the W3201''
I too have a sound problem witn the W3201C 32 inc LCD TV. My set is a mere 2 years old. the sound pulses when turned on, however after about 20 mins or so wih the sound muted, the sound does clear up - how long this fix will work is anybodies guess and when that fix goes, what then. I have phoned Dell and they told me they no longer make either this TV or the parts to repair it. I REALLY dont think we should silently put up with this
shoddy workmanship, If Dell refuses to replace these defective TV's, which were certainly not cheap - I for one am seeking legal counsel

Hi Mikshanks,

I had the same problem with my TV. It was a horizontal problem with different shades of color, and black spots. I replaced my Upper & Lower Y-buffer boards. Your Y-sus board should be okay since it still powers on the screen. You should replace the Y-buffers Upper & Lower, and it should work. I hope this helps.

best regards,
Tyler

This should be repairable. It may be the LVDS Cable or the Main board problem. The only other problem is the T-Con Board.

50HP66 50 in. Plasma Television: i have red dots/shadowing on my tv...


I got the red dots really bad on my toshiba 50hp66 after an hour or two of watching tv. I found out that if you open up the tv in the back on the left you will find two adjustment pots labelled Vsc and Vy. I took a sharpie and marked where the factory defaults were first. Then I adjusted the Vy pot down a little bit and the red spots were gone! My tv looks great again!

it could have over heated you can try to reset it first unplug it for about five minutes and try to turn it on if that dont work the remote might have a set button try holding that down until the red light flashes twice, then turn it on if not then hold the power button down on the set for a good five seconds to see if that resets it. if none of that works you will have to go to panasonic .com for the reset instructions.with the red light blinking the power supply is most likely good you just need to reset i.

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
