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

Hi ,
try swapping the screen with another one to just see if it is behaving the same, because some times the screen circuitry or the led screen could be damaged .

good luck buddy

It shuts off 2 seconds after i power on.


Several possibilities but most common seems to be power supply defect or poor connection. Check these resources. Note that other Youtubes that may address the problem are also accessible from the youtube link.

This is line output transformer problems. Before changing LOT,watch any dry soldering is there and also check vertical output ic is good or bad ?by replacement methode.
NOTE- if you know the protection pin, isolate the pin and switch on tv through 200watts bulb seriesly.then watch the symptomes.
Thanking you

Very light colored verticle (1" wide) ribbon on LG 42" Plasma TV


The TV is design for 16:9 format. The bars appear when the TV off showing that the TV has been watching under channels which is have 4:3 format for long time. The screen was burn out because no sweepping to those area. This is not critical problem but you can do nothing to fix it. To eliminate it a bit you shoud read the manual, I believe it has mentioned how to roll or sweep the screen. For plasma TV, if you keep watching 4:3 channels fomat, you shoud do it one a month within 30'. Good luck

Issue with LG Plasma tv model # DU-42PX12X


Another "same probelm"

My set has encountered this magical 50/50 split screen and it seems to be quite a problem since I am not the only one researching this issue. LG was of no use because of course it is just out of warranty. Any solutions on fixing this or am I out of money in buying a new plasma?

Lost half of picture


This can be on the matrix drive board, or the display assembly itself. It is possible to also have a defect in the address decoding area that will cause this.

The procedure is to swap out the suspect boards to determine where the fault is, leave the working boards in the set, and then follow up any necessary calibrations that are necessary.
