LG 42" Plasma Red Spots/Mist on moving Black images

I have red dots appearing all over the screen, but only over the black or darker images. The TV is 15 months old and this has just started happening in the last 2 weeks but is getting worse every day now. I have no extended warranty so can I sort this myself or or does it need LG or an expert? If this is a technical fault, and a very annoying one at that, then will LG be likely to contribute anything to the fix?

    I had the same problem. 42 LG plasma after 1 year old red dots started showing up in dark screens. slowly got worse and soon enough there were thousands of red dots. called LG to complain and they hooked me up with a case # and a local company to repair the tv. repair company came out and replaced every part of the tv except my fan and the speakers. they replaced every board in the tv and the shell/screen. worked great for another 10 months and the red dots starting showing up again. of course it was 3 months after my 2 year warranty. called LG to complain again. they did say they would do me a favor and extend the warranty and fix it again but that would be the last time. currently waiting to hear from LG with my newcase #. I would suggest to all with this problem to call LG and put in complaints even if they help with getting fixed. Doing me a favor to extend a warranty this once probably wont help since it seems that this is going to happen evry year and after every fix. horrible for a $2000 piece of technology. I feel they should replace our tvs with a more updated version. At very least I suggest that everyone get the extended warranty offered from your tv supplier. Best buy was mine. I was to late to get it before my original 2 yr warranty ran out.

I was told this was a ramp voltage setting and any tv engineer can fix it quickly.

It is possible that adjusting the VS and VC voltages will take care of this. If the adjustments do take care of this the fix may be tempory. In the end you may have a bad PDP.

Plasma tv has little red dots in the black


This problem (known as sparkles) can be cured by adjusting the ramp control on the Y-Sustain board. If this does not cure the dots then there is a software remedy for the control board which an LG repair centre could fix. Failing that a replacement board is required. The orbitor & whitewash are like screen savers to help to prevent a screen burn from a permanently displayed image.

Red spots


what you can do is take off the back pannel and there is a cord on the top of the board that looks like a computer board, there are many boards in the TV but the one I am talking about is twords the bottom where the video jacks plug in to the TV. Ok once you have located the pannel there is a cord on the top kinda tword the right side, it is many wires inside a black covering. What you need to do is just simply unplug it and plug it back in, do this as many times to try to get it to work. If that doesn;t work you can replace the cord and if that doesn't work then the screen is out and would cost WAY too much to fix, you could buy you a new name brand TV.

Screen black after big storm...


The set has sound and no picture.If you the SSB could be the issue but the tiny red dots on a black screen will need the panle replaced also. There is a way troble shooting can be done to determine if you will need the SSB or the SSB and the panel.

Was wondering what happened to yours.
