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.

Tip

SONY TRINITRON ONE COLOUR PREDOMINANT SCREEN


Sony Trinitron sets are of CRT [Caothde Ray Tube] types. The common fault seen in these type of TVs are any one colour predominant on screen wih sound OK. Either red, blue or green colour with some thin horizontal lines at about an inch apart will be seen on the entire screen. This is totally a display card problem, which can be seen pluged onto the picutre tube neck. There are three electron guns for every picture tube, which emits red, blue, and green beams, which in turn illuminates the phosphor on the screen to get that colour. If no emission from all guns, results in a blank screen, ie black screen without any disply at all. The three colour beams together produces proper coloured picture what we see on screen. These three gun's terminals are brought out by pins of the picture tube outside to which video signals are given in appropriate proportion to produce a TV picture. Normally, all these three pins are biased with a voltage of about 170 to160VDC+ve. Take one colour gun, as an example and and let me describe the problem.
Let it be a green gun. These guns are called cathodes of the picture tube. If it gets a voltage with respect to its grid, it will emit electrons according to the voltage applied to it. This is a negative process, that is, as the voltage at this pin drops, its emisson incresses and vice versa. If the emission increase, the colour with respect to that gun also will increase and gets predominant at the screen. So when we see a green predominant screen, there will be less voltage at the green cathode with resepect to the other two. If red colour is predominant, the voltage at red cathode will be less than the other two. If blue colour is predominat, the voltage at the blue cathode will be less than the other two.
We must find out the reason for this fault first. Assume that your Tv has a red predominant screen with some thin lines across it, at about one inch apart of the entire screen, it is clear that the the red cathode voltage is very lower than the other two. the main reason for this fault, normally seen in most of the Sony Trinitron, are loose soldering points either to the picture tube base socket or the resistor connected between the red drive transistor's collector point. Resoldering the most of these points on the base card by applying a little more solder will rectify this probelm. Other possibility is shorted video output transistor of that cathode. A direct short [collector to emitter] of these transistors will drop volatge to very low at that respective cathode of the picture tube, and that colour will be pridominant along with lines. Replacing the transistor will solve the problem. In some cases, the resistor connected to that transistor may have blown out. If so, it should alo be replaced. Whatever the case may be, voltage at the respective cathode that emits colour will be very low with respect to the other two. Find out the reason and rectify it. You can compare the voltages of the other two cathodes with respect to the faulty colur cathode. Cathode pins will be marked on the base card, and can be identified. It is best to pull out the base card from the picture tube neck and place it somewhere a safe place without shorting it with other parts of the TV. You can measure the voltages of these points very easly, without fearing the damge to the picture tube. After all are found Ok, replug the base card and switch on the TV. The set will be alright. In rare cases, chroma IC also can be a reason for this fault. if it is faulty, after a short period after switch on the TV, the IC will overheat and shutdown the entire system.

How can i fix static on my maxent lcd tv


26 inch maxent mx-26x3 and 32 inch, l2614xw02 some same parts
When i hear the word static, i think snow,
If while your watching tv and it looks like color snow pixels popping in and out all over the picture i did this to fix it.
look at main board you see a green heat sink,
left of that heat sink you see a 220 uf 16 volt capacitor that half surround by 22 uf capacitors,
change the 220 uf capacitor and snow is gone.
to get it off i just wiggle slowly back in forth until the old capacitor falls off,
then put some fresh solder on and new capacitor on and done.
use a radial electrolytic capacitor not the little metal one they had on

As i am watching tv after awhile my tv gets this green snow.


There are 3 colour guns in every TV and if one or more goes then you have what you are looking at a beautiful green screen.

The colour has suddenly developed a green tint to the picture which I am unable to adjust The model is LE37R87BD


A green tint to a tv means it's lost its red channel (may additionally be blue channel). Check that your video cables are connected fully. If that's not the culprit, and changing tv settings doesn't work, you'll need to take it to a repair shop; so they can repair the "red circuits:" Note: there aren't any "red circuits" per 'se, but there are circuits that tell the various computer chips - in the tv - how to handle the image. By "red circuits" I'm referring to these.

When using component cables(red, green, blue )


The series of the cable should go green red blue into the back. if you put the green in the red and the red into the green it give the TV a red base to go off of for the picture so everything is red. The reason the green cable won't is because it transmits a black and white picture which allows it a nice base to add the green and red to.

No picture, just coloured lines


The panel might be broken, but you should check the LVDS cable inside the TV:

Red, green, and blue rectangular "chads" or squares across top of screen


Hi there, this is easy thing to fix. Its LDV cable. This is the Cable which goes from the main board on to the screen. Un plug the cable from the screen side., then push the cable back. Make sure cable sits in .

This will sort all the problems with the picture,i.e colour problem , picutre squring up and many more things.
