Question about Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. Plasma EDTV

Are you using a component video connection (3 wires for the video, colored red, green, and blue)? It sounds as though you are, but correct me if you are using a different connection as the steps will be different. If so, ensure that they are all connected. You can also unplug one at a time while watching the picture. If the colors DON'T change when unplugging any individual wire, then check that wire from end to end looking for cuts/corrosion/etc... If necessary, replace the cable. Also make sure that they're plugged in to the right jacks, they should be color coded. NOTE: there is a red jack for the video AND for the audio. Check carefully that these aren't mixed up.

I have an old Toshiba TV and was going to replace it with a new plasma because it has suddenly (the week of July 19, 2010) lost color. It has only green and blue tint. Changing the "tint" on the menu didn't help. The color comes and goes relative to nothing that I can measure, such as how long it is turned on, etc. Reading other complaints from owners of Plasmas, I am thinking it is cable related. I have Charter Cable. Playing a DVD, I have to readjust the tint back to normal. Hope this info gives clues.

The fact that the picture is coming back to normal and then going back to the black and white mode, suggests that it is a capacitor problem. I suspect the location of the capacitors to be the main board, tuner board or the sustain boards. A problem of this extent means that you can identify them visually(cracked, bulged tops, or tiny holes at the top near the X cut). Replacing it depends on your prior experience in repairing electronics. High voltage electronics are not be messed with. The several thousand volts of resident electronic charge can cause permanent disability/death if not handled carefully.

There seems to be a problem with the RGB amplifier on the DG board of the set. Replacing that should resolve the issue but its gonna need pretty good electronics and soldering skills as the pins of the IC have to be de-soldered from the board and the new IC has to be soldered in. Would you like to do it yourself?
