Red Snow on HDTV

I have a red background snow on a LG 42" HDTV. I have disconnected the input lines and it continues. The only thing I have not done is put in a surge protector/line conditioner.

I had the same problem, and it drove me nuts. I called the store where we bought it since we still had a warrenty. They replaced a (horizontal deflection/scanning?) card on the set, and it got much better. I could, however still see a tiny amount of red, so the tech adjusted it again to show me how much better it was now, but in the process, there was a flash and a loud pop - and the set was no more. They ended up replacing the set. So, there is a solution, but be careful who installs it.

We have to ensure that the input device is not causing this problem. So, first change the input device to something that you are sure works. If the same problem continues, this might need attention by a qualified service technician.

Connecting a DVD/VCR combo to LCD TV


The best suggestion I would advise is to buy a shielded scart connector & connect that from your DVD combi to either AV1 OR AV2. It sounds as if you are picking up RF interference from your current connections, this can sometimes happen if the cables do not have adequate shielding.

Red Spots on 42" LG plasma t.v.


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.
