    it goes in waves. always on the black parts of clothing, hair, dark background, etc. it'll come in then go away all over the screen almost like red bugs moving around.

    How many pixels are you talking about? Just a few? Or, is it so many that the entire picture looks funny when it's happening?

Try leaving the television unplug for overnight.. and see if anything happen.. also you might want to see if it happens with anything you are watching.. ex. dvd player or Vcr .. if it does happen on a different device then the television is having some problems either with the main-board or the panel it self..
To get service on the television there is a 3rd party repair center called Amergence technology (ph. 866-965-3842) and they could provide you a repair quote .. or you could check with a local television repair shop..

My samsung flatscreen will all of a sudden turn it self off and on , start turning channels and the red light on the front will be blinking


It sounds that the main digital board to your TV is damaged. It will be best to get this set repaired by the authorised service center for Samsung, because, the work is a skilled one, need so many service adjustments after the board replacement.

I have a LG DU50PX10C with a black vertical line


Plasma televisions have anywhere from 24 to 40 drivers that control the individual rows of pixels comprising the screen. Should any of those drivers fail, the screen will display a 2 or 3-inch black vertical line, and probably shift the image to one side or the other. Driver failure is considered a manufacturing defect, and is not preventable by the owner. In some instances the line can be caused by faulty pixel ribbons that run top to bottom, either faulty of just loose in their connectors etc.


Then there are Stuck Pixels, Pixels become "stuck" due a failure to turn on from its standby state. Occasionally, these pixels die in rows, spanning the full height or width of the screen, or be only a few inches long. These "dead" pixels can turn on randomly, or stay a different color other than black. This is an issue caused from the wire filaments inside the panel failing, or an offshoot from a driver failure. Impact to the screen can cause a row to stick as well, even if there is little to no external indication of damage.


However, in most cases, inspection by an engineer is usually necessary to diagnose exactly what has caused the fault, unfortunately this can be an expensive prospect, not to mention the potential for a painful bill for the repair alongside the inspection fee. If your TV is in its warranty, don't hesitate to claim on it.
I hope this helps you, or at least gives you a better idea of what you potentially could be facing. Good Luck.

Black pixels in shading and back ground turning red


This is not a "rear projection" plasma TV for whiuch you offered solutions, It is the LCD Flat panel the Liquid Crystal Display a 40" Samsung. I do not think this problem is a dead pixel as that woulde be "black" Reading on the web I found only one post that appeared to be the same or similar and the person said somehing about "switching the red wire" Maybe it is a "stuck" pixel -- sticks on red once in a while. Like previously after the first time it occured it has not come back in three days now. Samsungs repair comes today i will cross my fingers.

Rca 62" PROJECTION FLATSCREEN - COLOR PROBLEM/FLICKERING SCREEN


Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.

Pixel damage


Those small pixels are now damaged not much u can do with it. Some people say you can press on the screen the pixels affected and possiblilty get them to make contact and light back up ( I honestly highly doubt it) If u can live with and not very distracting keep watching it. But if you want to order a replacement, more than likely it will cost more than the TV did when u bought it. If its still under warranty get it replaced if possible.

Sharp Actius AL27 pixel problems


From what you described, it seems as though your LCD panel is going bad or the inverter board is bad. Does it change colors if you were to reposition (tilt) the LCD back and forth in either direction?
