Question about Toshiba 42HP84 42 in. Plasma HDTV

Snowy Picture, Toshiba 42HP84 plasma tv

We experienced a snowy picture across entire the screen until the t.v. appeared to "warm up". It was fine until you turned off the tv and then started it back up. It wasn't every time you turned it on. Then, it became more frequent, and now, we have nothing but the snowy picture. You can see images moving, and sound and everything else is fine. It doesn't have anything to do with the signal. More like something burnt out.

Similar problem with my Toshiba. I was told it was the power supply and that it would cost about $900 to replace parts and labor

I do not know who was helping you before but the problem you are having can be caused by three boards in the tv each by themselves or in combination. Those are the control board with part#6871QCH053G, the Y- board part #6871QYH036D or the Z-board part#6871QZH041B. Without being able to do voltage and signal measurements directly for you, the Z-board is likely the culprit here. But I will tell you that even experienced tv technicians find themselves swapping one or more of the boards until they fix the problem. I am assuming here of course that you have not had problems with your tv before. The part #s I have given you are for the improved boards that LG has assembled to take care of future similar problems and come with their latest training manual for technicians. God bless and good luck.

Snowy black picture

I would think that the signal board would be more suspect than the hyper board for the symptoms you're describing. However I would recommend getting the service manual and doing some troubleshooting rather than just replacing circuit boards.

First of all, I'm not an expert but you might wanna change your cables. Bad and cheap cables are usually the reason for bad and snowy picture. Good luck!

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.
