Red dots on my LG 42PX5D

I have red dots on the black on the top 1/3 of the screen. I have a monster surge guard AV800 and a monster HDMI 1000EX attached to a skyHD box.
The problem seems to be intermittent, but it does happen a lot, which makes me think it's some kind of interference, from an outside source possibly... but what? Where would I begin to find out if this is the case. Ofcom maybe?
Or if someone could shed any light on my issue I'd be very grateful, thank you.

    My 42PX5D has a simlar problem. On a no signal screen the bottom half shows a snowy red cloud also on very dark scene's the blacks have the same problem. If it is a dark still scene the red slowly decays over a few seconds and dissappears till there's movement and back it comes.
    Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hello, you do not need to replace any of the sustain boards in your TV to fix the problem you are having. All you need to do is remove the back cover and make an adjustment to the Y sustain board. You will need to adjust the set_up & or the set_down! If you would like to do the adjustments to your TV please feel free to give me a call or message me. Ask for Dave! 1-503-432-9904 or message me @ pleasefixitdave@yahoo.com You will need to remove the stand & the back cover. Then put the stand back on the TV so that you are able to set the TV in the up right position with the back cover off! Then you'll need to hook the TV up to a DVD player so that you are able to pause the picture while you are doing the adjustment to the Y sus! Do not adjust any other adjuster on the Y sus other then the SET_UP or the SET_DOWN. In order to identify the correct adjusters on the Ysus just look on the board and it should say SET_UP & SET_DOWN next to the correct adjusters. If you need more help please feel free to give me a call or message me!

LG W2361V 23 Vga to HDMI Cable Not Working


You have a cable problem as no such thing as a VGA to HDMI cable exists.

HDMI is a didital signal and is thus not compatable with an anolog VGA signal. HDMI to DVI cables however do exist as both are digital signals.

Hope this helps.

I have dots running across the screen


If the dots are red and green, that's normal. Just enjoy your hd picture. actually, I think the dots make it look clearer. The only time I can really see them is when the screen is black.

Green Screen - LG 42PX5D


hello, seems to be panel trouble, plasma and lcd main panels are not fixable, the color green isnt a good sign or it is a symptom of the panel being bad,
i know its a bad diagnosis but this is true with this color on a panel.
if it is a worth while set and you want to restore it theres few options one is replacement trough your waranty

the another is having the screen replaced by a service center this is to costly and rarely done by them they would advise you to get another set. at a retail price a screen replacement is as much or even more than the tv itself.

finally you may search online listings for a servicable tv same model and exchange the parts .
the third option is the best if your waranty is expired.

good luck hope this helps

happy holidays.

Screen black after big storm...


The set has sound and no picture.If you the SSB could be the issue but the tiny red dots on a black screen will need the panle replaced also. There is a way troble shooting can be done to determine if you will need the SSB or the SSB and the panel.

Lg plasma tv 42 px5d


Most times this can be corrected by the correct alignment of the diffusion. The unfortunate part is that will require a tech that knows how to set all of the power supply voltages and then align the diffusion pots on the ysus pwb. This could mean a defective ysus bd. but most times the alignment will correct this problem.

This problem cannot be corrected without disassembly, and the proper adjustment of the power supply voltages and the diffusion adjusment of the ysus pwb. This will take a qualified service tech that understands plasma technology.
