LG 42in plasma - Green dots on HDMI channel

I have an LG 42in Plasma HDTV, and for some wierd reason, when ever i switch it over to the HDMI channels, small green, pixelated, random dispersed clumps of green spots appear on the tv screen. The problem seems to correct its self after the TV has been on for a while but i really dont know what is causing the green dots to appear. It doesnt occur when i watch digital television or on an other channels apart from HDMI 1 & 2. Can anybody shed anylight on the situation?

Cheers, Will

    Hi

    I've got 42PT85 from LG aswell, and I experience the exact same problems. I've just contacted their hotline, and they will send a technician to try and ort out the problem.My problems started on HDMI2, but now it's on both HDMI's

    I had a loudspeaker placed on top of one of my HDMI cables, and thought that was the reeason - but nope - removing did'nt help.

    also tried exchanging the cables without any luck.

    Apart from that I'm satisfied with the tv.

    i have the LG 42PC56 screen and have the same problem your describing. I only get them when running my HTPC through HDMI 1 or 2 or the PC input. DVB seems fine along with other HDMI devices. Its really an annoyance.

The diffusion is slightly out of adjusment. This timing adjustment is difficult and on a single scan LG plasma the proper operation requires voltage settings first, then a scope to finalize the adjustment. I have good luck with this alignment by eye but have had alot of practice. This will require taking the back off and a person with the technical background to set this alignment properly. Sorry no easy fix.

LG Plasma TV Buzzez when HDMI cable is connected, not all the time just randomly. different stations different times, why


HDMI is very prone to audio problems--the advantages of HDMI are just one cable combines all---Issue if using a box or only on certain channels could be coming from the box if used.

If using component connections and no problem at all-it likely is not the set.

HDMI sets sometimes require a software/firmware update to resolve issues here--if random it is going to be hard to resolve.

What is the part number for glass on 60pg60


Usually plasma TV problems start with the screen. If the plasma screen is broken or crashed, it's not repairable any more . It needs a new plasma screen replacement, which may cost you more then the plasma TV itself. ( new screen run ..2 -3k in real life .) Budget management !!! Protection front screen (glass on front) can be easily replaced and not so expensive as PDP panel behind it. If you have just protection screen damage your screen(PDP panel) will work without any problem . Plasma screen contains - aluminum base and two pieces of glass with gas between them ( gas inside not rechargeable ). Pixels with gas , controlled by small electrodes . Each pixel contains 3 colored sub pixels : they are green, blue and red. Plasma screen works in 2 steps:
--- gas ignition

Pink Screen on Vizio 37 inch with HDMI Connection


Hi,
I work as a contract technician for Vizio, and I can tell you from experience that replacing motherboard is one of the only solutions to this problem. The other solution if under warranty is to replace it. If you experience red, blue, or green pixels where dark shades (like nose, eyes, clothes, etc), call Vizio and accept nothing less than a full replacement! I have had situations where I replaced motherboard and within 2-3 hours the pixels return. Hope this helps.
