Plasma with Burn in within 3 years, I bet. I've seen Week old plasma's with burn in. Plasma technology is not as good as some would make it out to be. Due to the nature of the physics of the device, it is susceptible to something called "Burn-in" When an image of any form is displayed for long periods of time on a Plasma display, they start to literally burn in or wear out that part of the screen faster than a moving picture elsewhere on the screen. ie. If you have a television that is always on one channel and that channel always displays the little logo in the bottom right of the screen (abc, cbs, speed...) that kind of thing, you will eventually actually be able to read that logo even when the plasma tv is turned off. Check your manual or the manufacturer's website for your tv, and somewhere in there, it will refer to a "half-life" of the tv. ie. if your model has a 2000 hr half life, after 2000 hours of viewing, the display can at maximum, put out 1/2 of it's total brightness output. after another 2000 hrs 1/2 again as bright. and eventually it will be so dim that it's unusable. This is a fault with Plasma technology, LCD does not have this issue. CRT used to have this issue, but advances in technology have lowered this risk. So. What you are seeing is remnants of a bright image that was more often shown on that part of the screen than anywhere else on the screen. There is nothing that can be done other than replace the unit (or the screen, but it's easier to change the whole unit). if you've had this unit for 3+ years, you did pretty well. doing the math, if you only use your tv for 2 hours a day, for the 3 years you own it, assuming a 2000 hr half life, you've broken that limit. meaning that you will have parts of your screen that are very likely half as bright as others. Nature of the beast (plasma). This is why they are not as popular as they are advertised. Try an LCD next time.

Samsung led TV un60es8000 dark blotchy area on the upper right of screen. Most noticeable on greys,blues and blacks. The picture attached is the color most responsive to this issue (dark grey). Lighter...


This is caused by one of two things; a bad LED grouping (most common cause) either because the LEDs are bad or the power distributor fuse is blown and the group isn't getting power from the power supply unit. Or two: bad pixel group. But I'd check your backlight power supply for bad connections, blown fuses, or check your led groups for bad leds.

Only at the right side?? Check the linear encoder (plastic strip behind the carriage). It's for "horizontal measuring". Try to print without high speed option (printing only one direction).

Red tint to screen


If the model is a 50v500 the real question should be does the set have a red oval area in the middle of the screen (entire screen not red)---if the entire screen is red you have a chance---it has a red oval area and it needs a new optical light engine----you will have options also but limited if that is the case.

Green Area in Lower part of screen


Some Hitachis have developed bad connections on the convergence output IC's (locations IK04 and IK05) You could try and resolder the IC's but if you are in it that far you are best to replace both. The generic part number is STK392-110
