Question about Akai PDP-42TD1 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
Our picture is fairly good except for this: there are turquoise blue hues that show up on the screen, especially on faces, white colors. Also, small red dots all over the screen on dark colors and blacks.
Try putting a fan on the back of the tv to see if it is getting better. If it does then you probally have a board that is overheating. If that is the case then CAREFULLY !!! remove the back and place where you can turn on and safely access the open back NO TOUCHING STUFF !!! Mabey lay it face down on a glass table or lay it on a table with 25% hanging over the edge to see the screen. Then take a COLD blow dryer and blow it on the boards to find out which one makes it get better. If one does then it will probally be your problem board. Make extremely sure that is the one before removing it by blowing from all angles on the boards around it without air hitting the suposed problem board. Then try a little hot air to see if that starts the problem on that board so you can be sure. Of course check the surrounding and offending board several times to be sure before removing.

This might be caused by bad interconnections maybe try using a different cable i hope your not using analog.I was told that the red dots are usually caused by interconnects such as analog.
