Re: Green Cloud

There are a couple of possible causes for this, but my first suspect would be the main/input board. There are a group of electrolytic caps on that board, any one or group of which are probably failing, and my gues would be in and around the micom IC3003. This would cause the video or audio signal to be interrupted or distorted and if the signal processor sees nothing, nothing is exactly what the processor displays. unfortunately this repair is not for the less than technician. To repair that board a tech will use several tools far more expensive than the TV itself when it was new. On top of that it's not a repair you would trust less than a CET to perform. That said, it's not hopeless and far less expensive repairing it than buying a new one or half of a new one. So my best suggestion if to have it repaired at a reputable shop - one that specializes in plasma repair is preferrable. If you're not sure how to locate such a shop contact NESDA and research a servicer in your area. Hope this helps. Bill

The TV has a Black cloud on the right half of the

My parents have the same issue with their Sony KDL-46V4100 TV and were told by the tech that the LCD screen was physically broken and would have to be replaced. The replacement of the screen would cost more than a brand new TV and the TV is not longer under warranty. After the TV is on for awhile the Black cloud goes away but it always comes back when they turn the TV off/on. It stays for 20 - 30 minutes sometimes. The Tech took both top corners of the TV and pushed one back and pulled one forward to show them he could recreate the problem after the black blob cleared up. By twisting the corners he made the blob reapper which he claimed was becuase of the damaged screen. I have no idea how the screen was damaged? I helped them take it out fo the box and set it up. We never dropped it bumped it once? It's never falled off the stand so go figure? It would be nice to find more people with this issue and get a recall going. Something that expensive should last longer than to two years.

Why got green dots / image seen on screen?

Those green dots are dead or "tired" pixels. The only thing you can try to fix this, is doing a pixel massage. Grab a pen and put some sort of towel over it and make a circling move over the pixel.

If it won't work the only thing you can do is get used to it that you have a dead pixel. ( i also have one. Very annoing)

Jumping Screen


I've had a couple of these. The panel control board is going bad, but there may be a way to make it last a bit longer. If you go into the MENU of the TV, and turn off all the color correction, all the whistles and bells that come inside the tv to "make the picture better," it usually helps. Any kind of motion correction, or any kind of noise reduction (picture noise reduction) should be turned off. If the picture has a cloud of green pixels that seems to pepper the screen, then after you turn off all the stuff in the menu, unplug the TV for 5 minutes, and then plug back in. It should help the picture some.

Hope this helps...

Blinking light on 37" Dynex LCD

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Green noise on all black images on my SAMSUNG LN LCD TV screen

I had a similar problem with my LG plasma. I used the Image Sticking Minimization
(Pixel Orbitor, White Wash, and Inversion) feature which is designed to prevent image burn in and ghosting. This ISM feature may be available on the Samsung or any other brand under a different name. I activated the "white wash" option for about 30 mins, the screen turns white and somehow the pixels get reset. The green noise disappeared after that.

I hope this helps. Phezbuster

Pink cloud covering most of the screen

If the pink spot appears as mostly a circle in the middle if the screen then a light engine is needed. If it is an even coverage than possibly just a memory initilization needed by a technician.
