Re: lg42px52 speckling.

The speckling is caused by the CTRL board. The firmware needs to be updated. Unfortunately LG does not provide a media slot for downloaded upgrades. You must order an install the factory updated CTRL board located between the power and the Y sustain boards.

TV picture goese black and white

Check your cables on the back of the TV and cable box. You either have it connected wrong, or they are loose. If you are using red green and blue, make sure that you are tightly in the red green and blue connectors. If you are using yellow white and red, then make sure you don't have the yellow in the green spot.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!

For the spots....

I had the same problem, first a blue spot then a green spot showed up. I contacted Panasonic Customer Support. They sent someone out and they fixed the TV for free. They reprogrammed the EEPROM chip in the TV. It is a defect. My TV was 4 years old and out of warranty. They came out last week.

So long as it is not happening by something you have done. It will be fixed free of charge. Call them, it solves the problem.

Problem with the picture on my Vizio flat panel

I work as a Contractor for Vizio repairs, and I can tell you that the only solution is to replace the motherboard, or if under warranty REPLACE IT! I have had situations when I replace Motherboard and within 2-3 hours the TV is making either Green, Red, Or Blue pixels where dark areas are. If under warranty don't accept any thing but a full replacement.

Hi Mikshanks,

I had the same problem with my TV. It was a horizontal problem with different shades of color, and black spots. I replaced my Upper & Lower Y-buffer boards. Your Y-sus board should be okay since it still powers on the screen. You should replace the Y-buffers Upper & Lower, and it should work. I hope this helps.

best regards,

Colorful "speckles" on screen

Could be the screen burn from watching T.V. on a show and the thing burnt in (in this case the colors, yes it can burn colors.) and there's nothing you can do. The insides of the T.V.'s have plasma gases which can flow out of control.

Picture goes blank but audio on

If you are using component cables to connect your HD box to TV. Make sure your connections are tight. You should make the colors match up. Green, Red, Blue. Check on both TV and HD box. Make sure HD pox is powered on. Make sure to select TV input to Component 1 or whichever you are using. If this doesn't work you may need to call and have COX refresh the HD box. This can be done over the phone. This will make sure you are receiving and sending the proper signal level. Good luck

Check settings first to make sure no one changed anything out of the ordinary. Are the shadows that of a color or darkened shadow? It could be out of convergence, which can be corrected in the menu - or it could be low quality video cables to. Also, if there is no green, does a white color show up when you're in a menu mode (Red+Blue+Green = White Image)? If so, then the green picture tube is working and it's just a color adjustment, otherwise you may have to invest in a new green picture tube.

The green,blue,red hd plugs are for video only. you'll never get sound to produce out of a video line. audio comes from left and right which usually is white and red. it's always marked above or below the jack input.
