Pink instead of bright white areas on my tv

I have a plasma tv that is a little over 2 years old. Recently the tv has begun to display a splotty pink wherever white is supposed to be. The problem has become progressively worse over the last few days. Is there anyway to fix the problem?

Hp pl5060 Plasma TV has no sound or pix. Screen flashing white


I have a seven year Plasma TV HP PL5060. When I turn on the TV, I have sound but no picture, the screen display (power on) is a snowy blue screen and vertical pink stripe. What is causing this problem and how can I fix it cheap. I can afford a TV repair man at this time, because I am laid off from work. Thanks.

A Green Blotchy Area about 9 in oval in the upper part of teh screen


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.

My panasonic plasma has spots of bright colors where they shouldn't be.


If its four years old that is about the average lifespan of one of these sets; a guess would be either voltages drifting or off in power supply or one of the signal boards that processes information is going bad.

Age... Pure and simple. The backlighting and the display panel start to fail and the white is the first you start to notice, its probably not going to last a lot longer. Plasma tv's are nearly impossible to repair now days due to parts availability and service information, plasma tv's just went the way of the dodo bird, its all LCD now days. Ever time i get a plasma tv in for repair its generally headed for the recycling dumpster.

Samsung Model: HP-R4262 42" Plasma Problem, pink pixelation/ghosting


Onece the plasma heats up it shrinks a little, i think the cause is that you are low on plasma, so when i heats it shrinks and since the plasma cycles, the area low on plasma wil move slowly around the screen, take this to a repairman and more plasma can be added to it.

Hitachi 46F510 different channels are different brightness and to get them viewable I have to run the brightness so high that you can not see any text at all. Also all white areas are blasting white bright. Edges of the tv also seem darker. I am connected to a cable system.

Blue snowy pixel areas on my plasma


some of these panels were mis-calibrated from the factory after not aging long enough. Let the TV run for atleast 2 hours and adjust the Vs and Vscan voltages. When it is blue in the left I have found generally the Vs is about 10 volts too high.
