Question about LG MZ-42PZ14 42 in. Plasma Television
Whenever the screen is dark, hundreds of red spots "dancing around" on the screen can be seen. Any ideas what may cause this? I appreciate any helpthat you may be able to provide.
The dancing spots can be sorted by you taking the back panel off and adjusting the va and vs adjusting nobs , you will need a multimeter so you you can adjust the voltage to the right settings that are on a sticker on the back of the panel. You must remember to connect the black pointer to the earthed wire to get and the red to the live wire that has va or vs at the end of it. The right voltage measurements will be be found on a sticker at the back of the panel.
I advise you not to touch the setup and setdn nobs as these are factory settings and should not be touched.
If the va and vs do not sought the problem then try the vy and vsc adjusting nobs but only touch those if the va and vs does not fix your problem first.
Once you have done everything right your tv should be better then before with clearer pictures.
I hope this helps and be careful not to get zapped.

Had red snow on my 22" LCD and the problem ended up being a cable which wasnt fully inserted.
red spots disappeared the moment i pushed the cable in fully

Red and green snow in lower center of 50 inch plasma magnavox have to have contrast almost all the way down to minimise problem so tv cant be as bright as i would perfer but if contrast is all the way up, their will be blue dots along with the red and green- if somebody knows how to fix or diagnose problem please post-

This is a partial solution because it did not completely get rid of my "red snow". However, it did minimize it.
I installed a three phase power conditioner for all of my AV equipment and was amazed at how much it helped. I do now think the problem is an interference problem, unfortunately, I also think that the HDMI input on my set is picking it up, not any of my cables.
If anyone else tries this and it helps, please post here.
