Open Question

Toshiba 42" plasma, screen blinks/flashes

I have had a toshiba plasma for two years with no problems. One day while it was on screen went blank and started flashing. After turning it off for a couple of hours the picture is very distorted red/green pixels and it still flashes and there is a ticking noise coming from the motherboard that is closest to the control buttons on the side of the tv. Sound has not been affected.

Hi,
The problem is more or less with the LCD screen itself. The manufatcurer covers dead or burnt pixels.I would suggest contact Vizio Support on the following number

SOURCE: Panasonic 42 inch Viera Pixel Distortion

We have the TH-42PX70A which has the same problem. It comes and goes..It is only 2yrs old, warranty has run out. The moving red pixels are on the black and the cyan pixels are on the white. It will go away for months and then return for a few days. It is not an antenna problem as the signal is still there.I am taking it in today for the tech to look at, but I turned it on this morning and it is fine. So I wont be able to show him.. (took pics though).Everyone says they are the "best" and all that, but every now and then you get a lemon. If it turns out to be too costly, I will buy a new one and it wont be a Panasonic.
