Lg 42pc1d plasma tv red sparkles

This is a common problem having been on av forums website just wondered if you know anything that might help, basically red sparkles appear in any black area of tv, its worse when you first turn it on with a large area at top of screen completely covered with red sparkles. Someone mentioned it might be the sustain voltage that needs lowering, any help would be appreciated thankyou

    I began having the same problem with my LG about a month ago and it was getting progressively worse. The set is still under warranty. I quizzed the tech about the problem and got several evasive answers but in the end he let it slip that the cure may be a new set (at no cost to me). This is obviously a problem with LG and it is apparently becoming very common;

    maybe even epidemic..

I had the same problem, LG came out and it turned out to be the board that filters out the interference around the screen. I pretty sure that was it, took them 10 mins to fix by replacing a few of the boards inside the screen. Sorry I can't be more specific but its not an unfixable problem, so nothing to worry about.

Is this red sparkles? Or just overpowering red?
If It is sparkles you need to check the VS voltage in accordance to the chart on the panel. IF ok suspect the digital board is defective.

The ist light and second light shone red on my xbox but i cant find anything about these lights combo and a turned my xbox on and off and it worked what happend

You may have had a loose connection from the av cable ot your power supply may have over heated. The most common thing i see in my workshop is whn the AV cable csnnot be detected, all four will flash red, but in an over heating case, you will get flashing red on segments one and three. I hope this helps .

Plasma screen

do you have the swich on the back of the xbox plug set up for reg tv? Does it work in that mode with just the red, yellow and white wire in the side AV slot? If you were using the xbox on another tv its possible you modified the display settings in the menu. Try hooking it up to a standard tv and reset the setting to default then try rehooking it up to the plazma.

Plasma tv has little red dots in the black

This problem (known as sparkles) can be cured by adjusting the ramp control on the Y-Sustain board. If this does not cure the dots then there is a software remedy for the control board which an LG repair centre could fix. Failing that a replacement board is required. The orbitor & whitewash are like screen savers to help to prevent a screen burn from a permanently displayed image.
