Red/pink shades in dark areas happens only 6ins down from top

I have a LG DU-42PY10 42in and owned it for about 3 years now. After a couple of hours of watching TV, the top area of the screen about 6in down from the top turns red/pink shades in some pictures. Then I turn off the TV for about 10mins and it goes away. How do I fix this? Somebody help please!!


I also have 1 pixel that flickers red off and on.

Sounds like you have a cap that leaky or a ic thats getting hot,
if you want to try and fix it yourself get a can of freeze it

and when the problem appears spray the can on each (ic or cap) part till the problem goes away.

    don't know that why you spray one at a time and when it disappears you found it. it will most likely have a heat sink on it or if you touch it it might be hot but be careful theres high voltage inside there.


    I have no clue on the sparkly sorry

5100 HP Desktop printer--magenta ink comes out pink not red (right out of sealed package!)


magenta is just a fancy name for pink.... its usually a darker shade of pink not overly dark but not a bright pink that most associate with the color.
most hp printers use the ckmy color format as opposed to the rgb that most are used to. check your other ink levels to ensure that they are at least half full and when you print out a doc or pic requiring red, the other inks will assist in creating the proper shade

Vizio P42hd. During color or black and white, also with color turned completely down, the transition areas between shades of each light and dark areas it looks like feathers blowing in a soft wind. ...


The control panel has been responsible for a number of similar problems in sets like Visio that use LG boards. From your description that would be one of the first areas I would be looking at.

Vertical line on side of LCD TV


Modern televisions have screens divided into sections. Each section controls all the rows in its area, and it is controlled by its own video separate video driver. If you are missing a line in a section, then a problem has occurred with the driver board in that area. It will be pretty expensive to fix, I hope your warranty has not just expired!

I have have this TV for almost 3 yrs..now have a shaded area on the left side


The dark side of the screen causes of the lamp alignment or prism glass alignment. This is critical you have to consult your LG technician to do this. But if you have any background o repair consult the service manual. Please careful not to touch the prism quarts so that you maintained the clarity of picture and brightness on the screen.
