Question about Daewoo DP42SM 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

No picture on 42" plasma TV.

Daewoo #DP-42SM. Sound works, but I get a frozen image on the display that could best be described as "Multi-colored Burlap". Thin 1/8" horizontal and vertical colored stripes frozen on the entire screen. Unit manufactured 12-03. Could this be as easy to fix as a board replacement? Firmware upgrade? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Try restarting,check that every connection that should be connected is connected.
Especially the scart connection, they have a tendency to cut out the sound or colours.

Look like shadow and it is to much color

I have not repaired a plasma TV. As I understand, the plasma TV has a picture tube similar to those in older TVs. I have read about them, and have an authorization for two other TV manufacturers. The bulletins I have read described trouble shooting problems. Your TV may be exhibiting a blue or red hazing problem. This is most certainly describing a bad plasma screen. This problem is a common occurrence. Once again I have read many trouble shooting tips regarding this problem. Under warranty we are asked to replace the screens. If this TV is not under warranty, the cost will exceed the price of a new TV. Sorry, about your TV. You may opt for a second opinion, and please do so. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

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
