Question about LG 42PC3D 42 in. Plasma Television

3 Answers

Plasma tv has little red dots in the black

When the picture turns to black you can see little red dots in the picture. Im not sure what the white wash and orbiter does. Im not sure how long to keep white wash and orbiter on for. Does this get rid of the red dots? Ive lost my guide for the t.v. I hope this will get fixed as the t.v. is only about 2 years old. Hi. I have an LG 42PC3D and have the exact problem you describe. I'm looking around, trying to figure it out.

    I too have the red sparkles and now my channels seem to not stay programed. I kept blaming the dog for sleeping on the remote. I can reprogram the tv for channels but then the next day it is gone again.
    The Red dots are getting worse.

    *I have red blotches on the top and bottom right part of the screen.Also,the set sometimes "retains" written passages on the screen.I've tried "whitewash" without success.

    This worked on my LG 42PC1D after i read a post on here. I removed the back,take care when the back comes off not to damage it,its very thin. Locate the two adjustable pods numbered VR2 and VR3,if you go from the middle of the tv towards the left its roughly half way across and half way down.They are little blue squares with a yellow star screw in the middle,written on the board beside VR3 is SETUP and beside VR2 is SETDN.There are actually three of these,the third one is located just to the right behind silver bracket for holding on back of tv. I marked positions of VR2 and VR3 with a marker pen to know where factory settings were.Turned VR3 clockwise as far as it would go.VR2 didnt seem to do anything.The other one behind bracket distorted colors so i put it back to factory setting.I have checked black screen at night with lights out,There's no red mist at all,in fact i would say picture is better now than its ever been.Ive attached an image of two of the pods.Hope this helps.

This problem (known as sparkles) can be cured by adjusting the ramp control on the Y-Sustain board. If this does not cure the dots then there is a software remedy for the control board which an LG repair centre could fix. Failing that a replacement board is required. The orbitor & whitewash are like screen savers to help to prevent a screen burn from a permanently displayed image.

Try to replace the CTRL board and most likely you can get rid of those dots.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

I have pioneer plasma tv about 6 years old. I turned the power on, sound but no picture. Do you think it is worth fixing?


no
plasma tv units consume considerable power and the latest led units don't so for the extra cost of a new unit , there will be a power saving over the years

I have checked cables and different methods of connecting, but the white and red audio out of my PVR appear to have stopped putting out sound.


Go through the setup of the PVR and check the sound settings. It sounds like it's only producing digital audio, that's why it works with HDMI but you want analog, so set the audio to stereo, or try every setting to see what works!
