Question about Televison & Video
Hi there, about 6 months ago i bought a samsung 42" plasma and i've just started noticing this problem. After the tv has been on for a while, maybe an hour or 2, these groups of very bright blue pixels start showing up and spiking from the left side of the screen. It seems to happen when the screen shot changes, then blue pixels fade til the shot changes again. Its most noticable on solid single colours, eg. when your flicking through the source input (HDMI, AV1etc..), the tv displays what input you're on in a block at the top left of the screen, so every time you change source the pixels 'spike' out from the left and then slowley fade. Sorry for the vagueness buts its quite hard to describe......... Any ideas?
The model is PS-42Q7H (R)
I have had the same problems with blue pixelation on the left hand side of the screen after 1.5 years of owning the TV. However I took out the extended warranty and had it repaired just yesterday. It was a firmware update that needs to be done on the TV to allow more voltage through the board, and it seems to have worked. Had the TV on all day yesterday and no sign of blue pixelation.
Im sorry to say I cant tell you what firmware version it was upgraded to. Hope this points you in the right direction for the fix though
