Over past couple of months the tv has gotten 2 red spots in the lower right hand corner of screen about an inch in diameter, and recently a green spot in center top third of screen that is about 2 inches...

Unfortunately your light engine(also know as optic block) may need to be replaced. If your tv is out of warranty, it will probably cost around $1000 to fix. There is a slim possibility that the optics lens could have dust on it and a tech could clean it for much less than that. This is a very common problem in any dlp tv and they are all expensive to fix. I've replaced several of them at our shop, but about half of the customers won't have the tv fixed and will get a new one. Good luck!

I have a Sanyo 46 inch flat screen hdtv purchased from walmart aug. 31rst, 2008. Sure enough, 13 months later my tv is having picture problems and getting worse. It started having portions of the screen...

I have the same problem, my television is faded black on the left side with lines on the left top side. I have had the 46 inch unit for 1 year and 7 months. I am planning to write a demand letter to Sanyo and then taking them to small claims court woth evidence that this is a common problem with their units that they know about and is not trying to remedy. Also the Attorney general in Texas should have an interest in them (Walmart and Sanyo) selling these defective proucts in the state.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

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.

Issue with LG Plasma tv model # DU-42PX12X

Another "same probelm"

My set has encountered this magical 50/50 split screen and it seems to be quite a problem since I am not the only one researching this issue. LG was of no use because of course it is just out of warranty. Any solutions on fixing this or am I out of money in buying a new plasma?

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

Hi , I recently had the same problem which I was determined to fix . So I did a few weeks of research to find that it was the Y SUS board which burns out. I'm sure you realized that the TV gets hot. Personally I think this is why. circuit boards don't like heat and I've learned that the cooling fans are a joke. I replaced the board and got my picture back. I proved the fan theory because after the screen started to act up. I placed a cooling fan near the vent holes on top and the problem cleared right up,It also helps if you lower the brightness which helps out on the heat situation.I will soon be adding a fan with a temp. sensor. This shoud help if your screen has lines when you initially turn the cool TV on.then I have Some other costless solutions. Hope this helped these are great TV's and like our cars we maintain them not throw them away..................................Mr Wiseman

Red line in top corner of screen

Sounds like an IC on the LCD panel went out of TV. Only thing to do is replace panel (it won't go away only get worse) It will probable be cheaper to just get another tv.
