Problem with LG 42 inch plasma

Hi I just got a new LG plasma for christmas and about a week ago I noticed when I turned the Tv on there were like a few dots thats sparkled all around and now it has gotten worse. You can see them most when the TV is on and the cable is off because its just black but you can still see them when the cable is on. What can I do? its like pixle dots or something, they are green and move a lot.

If you notice these dots when you use Video or HDMI inputs, then you need to do something to get rid of them.

Open the back cover, try to reduce the Vs voltage 5-10V below its spec value. Vs is from Power Supply Board and its spec value was printed on the back of PDP panel. If your tv is under warranty, just drop it to the warranty depot shop.

About two months ago my flat panel plasma tv


Most like likely, this is a panel issue and it will be too cost to fix.

Other things you can try, reseating the ribbon cables on the buffer boards located running across either the top or bottom or both. If that doesn't do it, replace those boards and still no luck. Panel is bad.

BROKEN PLASMA SCREEN


Unfortunately, you'll have to replace the whole plasma screen to fix it. It's the most expensive part of the TV.
The web link below is the cheapest place to get a new screen.
http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?q=lg+screen&p=2

If your TV is model 42PC3D, they don't have your screen in stock right now. If you look at the other screens that are 42", the are $350 and up. Other web site will charge more than double for the same screen.

Sorry to give you bad news.

This is almost certainly the device that sends electricity to the the plasma in the panel after failing. Bring to your local repair shop and expect to pay 300-400 parts and 100-200 labour.

Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.
