Re: v scan voltage

Try to adjust the V scan voltage down about 5-10V. If still not working, also try to adjust the Vs voltage down about 5-10V.

Picture is fine for 20 mins to 3hrs, then dark areas become red speckels. After turning unit off for a while, cycle begins again. I was told this is a "Pixel storm". Is this common to Panasonic plasma...

This is common to all old plasmas, the vertical scan module isn't getting enough power.
Long story short - you're going to need to remove the back panel of your plasma tv, turn some knobs, and watch your annoying pixel storm slowly dissipate.
What you're looking for are little knobs that control various voltages. Most are these are shaped to be turned with a Philips head, and are sometimes marked with little clicks around them like a clock. If you get a flashlight and look, there's a description printed on the circuit board that tells which voltage that particular knob controls. Almost all of the tv's i've heard of being fixed need to have the VSCAN, or vertical scan adjusted. Make the adjustments in small steps and wait for a result.

What are the Vs Vscan Vset and Ve dc voltages supposed to be for this tv. i know they are posted inside the tv, but i amd experiencing some blue pixels in the screen. found others to be fixed with a...

They mean... Vs = usually to do with Volts, usually denoting Vss, or Ground... Can also mean Voltage on the Source of a FET transistor. Vscan, = Scan Voltage. Vset, = Set the Scan Voltage, Ve, = Voltage again usually Vce meaning Positive Volts,. Can also mean Voltage ON the Emitter of a Transistor. But unless one can see the place in the circuit on the schematic, it is hard to tell.

Hitachi Plasma EDTV has green dots flickering all over screen

that is called diffusion. that can be adjusted out in most cases by adjusting the y sustain pcb but can also be the main pcb, the logic pcb and panel itself but not likely.

Error diffusion on Samsung 50" PLASMA TV

Yes the diffusion problem on your tv is due to the pdp panel aging. What you can try is readjusting the VSCAN voltage, there is a test point marked VSCAN using a DVM you can first check the voltage, should be around -- 190 turn the adjustment counter clockwise this should reduce the voltage, watcthing the picture turn control untill the sparkling pixels stop. That should do it. The panel is starting to age this may occur again until you can't adjust it out meaning a bad panel.

LG 42PX3DCV 42 in.

Pixel misfiring (diffusion errors) are caused when the tv is not firing and erasing the pixels correctly. It can be caused by a number of things, usually a voltage or waveform is off somewhere. If you just bought the tv, return it and get another. If you are out of warrany, you can remove the back panel and run the tv to check the voltages. Don't touch the heatsinks! they're electrically hot and will zap you.. the voltages are labeled on the back of the plasma panel with a sticker. first check Vs and Va. sometimes you can check -Vy, Vset, Vscan and others if labeled on the board. If you have to adjust waveforms you need a very $$ o-scope and should get qualified technician to adjust. If a board is bad, its likely your power supply or Y-sustain pcb, and less likely your Z-sustain or contol (logic) board.

Blue Noise, left side of TV

I have the same problem -- had a Best Buy technician out 4 times so far, replaced 2 parts, adjusted the voltage, etc., but still have the same problem -- looks like there may be no solution other than replacing the TV, which is an expensive proposition considering that mine is about 18 months old.

Blue Noise/Pixels Bottom Left Corner of my Samsung Plasma

You would need to have a technician remove the back of the TV and make the adjustment. There are 2 small adjusters that they change to adjust the voltage.

V-scan voltage adjustment

If you adjust v-scan make sure you adjust it for the setting that is marked on the panel when you take the back off. Why do you want to adjust v-scan? are you noticing red pixels firing or green ones? This is a diffusion problem and i am familiar with the fix for that. Let me know and we can go from there. Also what is the version of the HP-R5052? Talk to you soon . Thank you Jay

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.

You need to adjust the panel voltages, adjust the VS voltage to around 186 volts, if that doesn't change it then adjust the V-Scan voltage down, turn the unit on and apply a video source to it, and while adjusting the voltages look at the screen and you should be abe to watch the video noise fade out.
