Sounds like it's on the wrong input, maybe it's analog tuner. Have you tried changing it's input?

Picture is fine for about an hour then goes fuzzy

Hello Townsend, It sounds like a problem called blooming, or you are having a problem with focus control which are signs of a problem in the horizontal and high voltage section of the tv in the case of plasma TV this would be the excitation circuit. I would suggest that you take the set to a TV repair shop to effect repairs.

I have the figures p100 on the screen, have you any idea how I can get rid of them?

Hello a s ramsay,
What is the model of your plasma tv? Because if it is new, there is a scroll bar in your tv that can wash away that p100. You just have to go through the settings. If it is an older model like last year, then you can try going to a static mode. When I mean by that is when there is no picture but just a scramble. Leave it on for a few hours and hopefully it should it take care of it. Good luck.

After being on for a whilemy plasma tv picture scrambles. After it cools down the picture is restoredwhat could be the cause

Your plasma is over heating! This is not a good situation for the tv as the components are only rated to their highest temp of 105 degrees C. (IF there are quaility parts inside). Some plasmas are only rated to 85 degrees C. I would recommend installing an internal fan or keep a fan behind the plasma to help cool it during its' working hours!

Please rate if this helps :)
