Green shadows in dark scenes

Hello, I have an LG RZ 42PX11 four years old. Recently in dark scenes, it shows a lot of green/gray shadows of pixels located on the edges of the shapes that have very similar colors (as an example, on the faces, where several tones of pink are closer). The problem almost disappear in light scenes or increasing a lot the brightness (where black color almost become light grey). Any Suggestions? Thanks a lot.

Re: Green shadows in dark scenes

I had similar problem on my Samsung PS50A656 here in Europe...I could see it only when playing from my notebook from USA. The settings were 1080/60hz as my notebook`s monitor supports only 60hz. Although the TV was able to play that, I saw those clouds of green as you describe. I switched the notebook monitor completely to TV and than changed the settings to 1080/50hz. The green clouds are gone...
But now when I check the Info Screen on TV it says: 1080i/50z. Does it mean I am watching worse quality now because of that "interlaced" ??

Problems with lg rz-42px11 load bang no picture

The set really needs to be looked at by a shop or an experienced tech, not going to get here and answer: press this button and that and it will be just fine.

Something clearly popped--since they only sell boards for this set it may need one or more or even if the panel or screen unit is involved be fatal---have it looked at to see what happened.

My LG 42pc1DV has sound normal but picture just died and is blacl, before this happened I had a lot of green pixels that only showed up across screen on dark pictures, 4 year old and just out of warrenty

Either your Y sustain board went out or your upper and lower Y buffer boards went out. Worst case scenario is your panel went out. But you won't know without replacing the other boards first.

My brand new LG 37' Led/Lcd t.v. had four very light white spots that you can see in the background what causes this?

Dead and Stuck Pixels
Pixel defects for an LCD monitor are defined as one of two types: dead or stuck. Technically, both types of pixel defects are stuck pixels but it really deals with the electrical currents and the state of each pixel or sub-pixel.
A dead pixel is defined as a pixel or set of sub-pixels that has failed and is permanently in the off position. This condition means that the pixel will not let any light through. This can be observed as a dark or black spot on a brightly colored or white background.
A stuck pixel is defined as a pixel or sub-pixel that has failed and is permanently in the on position. This can be either with a single or multiple sub-pixels for a given pixel and is best observed on a dark or black background. A white pixel means all three sub-pixels have failed while a green, red or blue pixel means one of the sub-pixels has failed.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

My 20 lg powers up, red light turns green, but no picture comes up, the channel id shows then it goes dark. I can wait up to ten minutes still no picture unless I change the channel a few times then it...

You wont want to hear this.....

Green dots on a LCD screen are burnt out pixels and unfortunately are incurable other than having the TV serviced at a high price. One of the reasons it is a good idea to get a warranty on these types of TVs is primarily due to this very problem....burnt out pixels.

Getting light pixelation on dark scenes.

Sometimes a technician can make adjustments to the y-sus and z-sus boards on the panel. If that doesn't work then its either replace those boards along with the main driver board or replace the panel. Either way this requires a technician to look at the TV.

Samsung le32r7 2yrs old

Well the shadow is caused by the pixels going dead. There is a term for this "dead pixels" if its still under warrenty take it in. If its not you may be able to get a new screen for it on I use ebay a lot and boy I found thing I though I would never find people are very informative and you will probably need to take the screen you bought to a repair shop and have them place it in for you. this is not a quick fix so I hope this helps.
