Green reflections on our 42 inch akai plasma

We purchased this tv almost 2 years ago and in the last few months have noticed green reflections appearing across the top and left side of the unit. It flickers in and out and is very distracting when watching television. It happens on cable and dvd...just wondering if it is worth fixing...we paid $1,099 at Costco but the unit is very rarely used because it is a second TV and we feel we didn't get our moneys worth.

    Thank you so much for your response...your quick reply was appreciated.



    The reflection is still appearing but we did notice that it does not happen until about 40 mins into tv watching and the unit warms up...any other suggestions?

Pink and green diagonal lines rollng across the screen??? panasonic 42" Plasma . Only purchased about 3 years ago - but been used very rarely.


Have you tried lifting the ground on the TV? That set has a grounded (3-prong) plug and sometimes sccrolling lines can be caused by a ground loop in your power lines.Are the green and purple lines very short, like just a few rows of pixels tall, or multiple inches, like 3 - 8 tall?

Akai pdp4225m plasma has a green light but no sound and no pic. It was hooked up to a satilite reciever that blanked out also. Is there a reset button or a proceedure that might get the tv working again.


Hold a flashlight up to screen about 2 inches and see if you see a picture, and if so then it's the inverter board, you can check shopjimmy.com to see the price.

Hyundai 42 inch plasma tv


Mine's out, too. Red Horizontal bars Left and Right, picture goes in and out(meaning fuzzy-no picture) on Left half and the TV tuner is gone, I can play DVD with half of a screen most of the time, occasionally the whole screen.

I should have returned my "returnable model" three years ago when I noticed Wal-Mart was NOT accepting returns when purchased after a certain date (I had purchased just before that date) Big, Big, OOPS!!

Repair estimate starts at $800, not guaranteed, and that does NOT include repairing the TV tuner. Ouch, Ouch, Ouch.

I see Hyundai stopped selling these units... anyone in the Chicago area that wants it for parts, let me know.
