You will need a technician service the y sustain board. the tech will connect an oscilliscope to the board and readjust the voltages on this board. when these voltages are off, like yours, you will see speckles in dark or light backgrounds....

Re: I have green specks in my black areas when movement...

I have orange chains of pixels usually L shaped in black areas, but not always, it happens with some videos and pictures, but the weird thing is that it usually only happens in the center maybe 5inch by 7inch area. could it be nvidia drivers? i have a 8600gts xxx by xfx and acer 22 inch p223w screen running xp media center. any ideas how to fix it would be great

The fault could either be on the main PCB (logic - input/output) or the Y-Sus PCB? Check the supply voltages for accuracy.

Well, if they are pretty much all across the screen, one thing you can do is pull the ribbon cables off the Xdrive left, Xdrive right & the Control PWB and clean the contacts and maybe loosen the screews a bit on the plates that attach to the frame that hold the cables in place and see if that chages the situation for you. They make contact with the boards by pressure and if it is uneven or not fully making good contact you will loose the element in those areas. If all else fails your looking at replacing the boards or better yet...get a new TV.

Green noise in black areas of picture

I'm sure you all thought of this but if someone does not state the easy fix then the easy fix doesn't get done.
I had the same thing happen to my Sam46inch1081, it just started doing it, no slow fade in over time.
I have cable with the HD box, all I did to fix it was unplug the power from the back of the hdbox, wait a few seconds plug power back in and have it reboot. Problem was solved.
Like I said, easy fix for me, don't know if this will help you, but ya never know.
Just thinking out loud here but maybe its not your tv but some other equipment you have added to it other than the hdbox.

Lg 42px4dv - speckly screen

I had the same problem with mine, LG techs came out to my place and upgraded the software and the problem went away. I had mine for nearly a year when it started, supposedly is it quite common. Anyway, dont worry too much about it as easily fixed. I have been very happy with my TV and have used it everyday for 16 months. Just want a higher resolution TV now.
