Question about Akai PDP42Z5TA 42 in. Plasma Television
Trying to figure out why spots emerge. manual says check to see there is no emitter sources (car HV cable or Neon lamp) or other possible interference sources.
what does this mean?
If I may add to the postings of devocap and coolguy008 (and with their indulgence)...
Often, HV would refer to high voltage cables. These are ordinary wires but with extremely thick insulation. Some later day versions uses highly conductive carbon inserts instead of wire to reduce electrical noise emissions. They are used where the voltages transmitted are considerably higher than normally used. Examples are:
1. Sparkplug wires
2. Power leads to neon light advertisements
3. wire from the flyback transformer to anode cap in picture tubes.
Possible sources of electrical noise (that uses HV cables)
a. 2 stroke engines such as those in some lawn mowers, chainsaws, old models of snowmobiles, outboard engines, dirt bikes;
b. neon signs such as those in cafes, clubs, hotels, public places.
Hope that this be of additional help/idea other than those posted by devocap and coolguy008.
Good luck and kind regards.

Hey there ShelleySmith, they are basically referring to anything that is conducting an electrical current, around or near your TV. in particular, neon lights, microwave ovens, etc.Also watch for things that can generate static charge. If you can't identify any potential interference, you could move your tv to another area or room to see if this is still an issue there Good Luck!

It's a 5 wire cable that transmits HD signals from your HD components
to your HD TV... unlike the 3 wire ones you use to connect VCRs and DVD
to TVs... they permit a faster signal speed and allow for a higher
may mean HI VOLTAGE witch can cause electro magnetic interference with
your tv. When an ac current passes through a cord a magnetic field
opens and closes along the cord and sometimes unwanted RF can leak in
to your devices via this magnetic field.They are not too expensive..
Don't forget to arte me as fixya..
