1 Answer

Plasma tv Recently my tv has patches of blue pixels flickering through the left side of the tv. They don't seem to have a pattern but are getting more consistant. The tv is about one year old and the problem was noticed two weeks ago. They do not appear on a solid black. only when the picture is a full screen and it doesnt matter if it is a hi-def or regular definition.

Re: Plasma tv

This happens because of panel conditioning. as the panel ages it requires different voltages to produce the takes about 1000 hrs before it has conditioned. it is a simple adjustment a tech can do for you. when this adjustment is made no other adjustment will be needed for this problem.

I have a patch of black pixels in the centre of my Plasma TV which is visible when the image is red or orange. How do I get rid of this

I am no expert but I believe this happens when the gas in those cells or pixels dies and nothing can be done,especially if an older model as they have only so many hours of life for a plasma tv.

Blue dots on my lcdtv

Sometimes the voltage can be set to high by the factory. Throughout time, blue dots will appear. You will have to remove the back cover off the tv, find the "voltage Screws (they are labeled) and turn down (left) JUST A Notch. Have seen this done many times.

Pray that the panel isn't blown out or bad projector tubes. They are expensive.

Blue dots and screen flicker are VERY common on the newer LCD and Plasmas

Also, if you have a pixel setting on your TV (not sure if that one has it) Try setting it to

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.
