Question about Toshiba 42DPC85 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Green and red static on screen

Our tv has developed a static problem where it looks like a coloured snow across the picture. The static shows up after the tv has warmed up for 20 minutes or so and it is very prevalent in darker images. Don't notice it much when watchin hockey, but it is still there. I am told that this is some kind of Toshiba mystery and that no service places actually know what the problem is so they just start replacing parts to no avail and at my cost. Is there a direction to take this or is it toast.

Hi KCsmooth, try to check the following b4 u toss it. At the back of your tv (without the cover), you'll find sticker with a voltage ratings written on it. They are stuck somewhere d top portion. Look for Va voltage and Vs voltage coming from the pwr supply. check and adjust if necessary.Trimmer pot somewhere on the pwr pcb board if needs to adjust. Marked Va adjust or Vs adjust.

Good Luck.

The picture turns green for a few seconds then goes back to normal


Hi. If it's not a picturetube (internal) fault, you may look for bad soldering joints on the printed circuit board, located at the tube.
This contains mostly the RGB amplifiers. A bad soldering on the one driving the "green" cathode, may cause such problems. It can easily be detected by gently knocking on the latter. Also look at the actual CRT socket solderings.
It is most unlikely that the fault is located in the colour decoder. Faults there mostly influence red and blue. In a PAL system, only red and blue are transmitted. Green is produced by a matrix.
Finally, in the worst case there is an internal fault in the picture tube itself. Usually, the discolouring is very bright, shows retrace lines across, and even makes the system shut down due to excessive beam-current. good luck.

I have a bush colour tv and there is a blue,green,red colour wash right across the picture so people''s faces look half blue,green red....sort of as if there is a rainbow across the screen.. i do not have...


It sounds like your TV may need degausing.
Is your TV situated near to any loudspeakers or other devices with large magnets inside them? Or has anyone been near your TV screen with a magnet???
You need to try to get the screen demagnetised (degaussed). Many TV engineers have a degausing coil that could do this. It only takes around 20 seconds at most.
Some TV's like Mitsubishi have a DG button on the remote, that does this function without the need to call out an engineer! It only needs one press of the button every few years!

RCA CTC203 no red colour


Did you change the resistor by yourself? I am not sure if your TV has manual adjust on the back of the TV that you can adjust. Some times turning the TV Off and unplug it from the wall helps because it resets the TV. Check your Back ground color and see what is the dominating color. Blue, Green or Red. If this doesn't work please call a professional to look at it.

Tv seems ok by static and now, no sound (or very faint)


The problem you're describing sounds like a tuner problem. BUT you say that you have the same problem with A-V input too. That's weird!!! Possibly the electronic TV-AV switching circuit is messed up and stuck in the TV (tuner) position. If this is the case you DO have a tuner problem and a switching problem too.
