Sylvania 6842PF M screen turning dark red

I have a 42" Sylvania plasma 1.5 years old. Periodically, the picture will turn a dark red color. I have tried to adjust the cables, etc, but it does not change anything. After 1-2 min. the picture returns to normal. This has started to happen within the last month. Any Ideas?

This sounds like the color processor IC is not working properly. If this is the case you will have to have this checked by a qualified technician.

Plasma TV Picture Periodically Blurry/Color is Distorted


This sound more like a cable issue. Also check the leads going from your cable box to the set/ If you are using component cables one of them may be loose.

I have a Sylvania 42 inch Plasma HD TV. It is 3


Hello

Before taking this to a local repair person, I suggest you check with your cable provider. See if they are having trouble with their HD transmission and then have them test your lines. Out here in Arizona with have constant problems with HD due to heat, rodents and poor installations. Your DVR only recorded the problems that were on your set. If these prove fruitless then take the TV to a reputable repair person.

Good Luck

Toshiba 42hp83 plasma power supply problem?


I had the same problem. It turned out that one of the cooling fans get dusty and does not work. I opened the back of the Toshiba plasma TV and cleaned the failed fan, and it worked like a champ.

Guess what you may have hit the nail on the head. Plasma TV used a balast type power system for the backlighting and that is what you are hearing. I would suggest getting this set looked at to see if the plasma excitor needs to be replaced (it may have another name in this brand of set).
